Food quality and service are great. Eggs are served as ordered, and egg sandwiches are tasty. Prices have risen, but still a super place for breakfast.

In my opinion this is one of a few places in this part of New England for bagels. On my last ride through Simsbury I knew a stop here was a must so I could add to my winter inventory. Could not resist adding their...new favor - Egg, cheese, sausage, pepper and onion bagel. I think I remember correctly as it was a couple of weeks ago that I bought it. Only bought a dozen of different varieties as that was the capacity of my bike bag. I will savor everyone over the next month or more.More

Spectacular coffee, bagels and ambiance. Exceptional art for sale on the walls. I seriously regret not purchasing. Comfortable and friendly clientele has you making friends immediately. Must return! Took home bagels and happy memories.

Always been a fan of Brookside. This was the first place in the area to have the cheddar bagels and I think they are still the best.

You can order a bacon (or sausage) egg and cheese without the bagel and they are happy to oblige. You can also order a side of bacon or sausage. All for either in-house or take-out dining. Have to say for those who can carb, their...incredibly fresh bagels are the best. Faves: sesame seed, marble, blueberry. And the coffee is wonderful too. They have a coffee club card for frequent visitors. And if you have young children, there is a cheerful child-oriented room in the back for parents to have a relaxed fun meal with their children. You order from the counter and receive a card from a deck of cards, as your order “#”. A shout-out to Tiffany who is always so patient and kind when she takes orders and refills the coffee dispensers at the speed of light. Super counter and kitchen staff all around. A pleasure to stop in when I am in the area at breakfast time.More

Bagel options are good, but sandwiches overpriced compared to Benny's right across the street. Pretty crowded too, if you go at the wrong time....

As a lover of bagels especially blueberry bagels...this place takes the cake. They also make their own cream cheese. This place is a must for anyone passing through town.

Brookside has been a long time town favorite with speciality bagels, cream cheeses and a great lunch menu too.

I live in the South and will patronize this restaurant everytime I visit family in Simsbury. The quality of the food is outstanding. So many choices! Friendly, caring staff who get to know you. Owners are family oriented and care about the community. Support local...businesses!More
