I have frequented this establishment many times over a period of 5 years, both personally and for business lunches with colleagues. I have found that the staff and management are not personable. I have looked past their personalities based on the quality of the baked...More

I have been going to City Bagel for breakfast or lunch (and the occasional Italian night dinner) for more than 20 years. Until recently, the restaurant was owned and run by Mary and Joe Tkach, but they trained the new owners so it hasn't changed...More

We got there at just the right time on a game day Saturday. They had a game day bagel (maroon, of course!). Bagels were good. We've also been there for Italian night, very tasty as well. Pizza bagel was yummy, as was just the plain...More

Can't go wrong with this spot, fresh bagels made & cooked daily. Great for coffee/breakfast in the am and also offering a "brown bag" Italian nights Wednesday - Saturday with delicious pastas. Pastry chef is putting out some amazing stuff! A must visit.... A+ spot!

Most importantly, the bagels were great. True bagels -- boiled and all. I would return, but only on a slow day. We went the Sunday after a MSU game day and they were unprepared for the volume (although I would think this is standard on...More

The name is very deceiving for this great dining location. They do have great bagels but the dinner options are phenomenal. On selected nights, they have Italian night where they offer some of the best Italian food menu items you will find anywhere including thin...More

Best Gazpacho Soup in Starkville. Sit outside and bring you pup. They will even provide a dog bowl and water. Best Italian in Starkville on Italian night Wed-Fri. Bring your own wine. They provide the corkscrew and wine glasses. Fun evening with lots of locals...More

Love this place! As a graduate student I like to come here in the mornings and work. This place has a very relaxed atmosphere. It's common for people to bring their dogs to the patio and just hang out. Their bagels are amazing and freshly...More

The food is consistently excellent; great bagels, sandwiches, soups, and salads. But, poor building design means can take a long time to place an order. Plus, the kitchen is small. Very popular, which often means you have a long wait to place your order and...More

I have a relative in your town, a young mother (Katherine) battling breast cancer. Her family consists of a great husband and two little ones. I would like to set her up on a gift campaign to receive family lunches, bagels or random things, treats to brighten her day from time to time. What do you suggest? Thank you, Barb Jackson

City bagel, 929, or the biscuit shop! They all have little pastries and breakfast type things that would be perfect.
