Bagels are a bit smaller and less dense than NY bagels, but every bit as tasty. The egg/cheese bagel was reminiscent of a Long Island Egg/Cheese Deli sandwich. Recommended!

I love the wheat bagel with tuna and swiss cheese for lunch and I side it with some also yummy dill potato salad. They use red potatoes in it. Their beverage choices are also vast, but I cannot pick a favorite there!

If you haven't tried a deli egg bagel, you need to ASAP. I prefer mine on an everything bagel. Their chicken salad, egg salad, smoked turkey bagels...oh plain bagel with lox cream cheese... It is all excellent. The Caesar salads and cleo's are great as well. You can't go wrong!

The Bagels were a great welcome considering the hotel breakfast was not too good. I would recommend better coffee.

Bodo's is a very unique place to eat. First of all it serves boiled bagels as opposed to the usual baked ones. They are much softer and better for sandwiches (which are Bodo's Specialty.) They have a wide selection of fresh ingredients for sandwiches which can end up piled high with meat and vegetables, if desired. They make to order... More

We had heard that Bodo's was all the rage so had to check it out. I made a slight edit to the lox bagel sandwich and subbed avocado for the cream cheese. It was ok, but seemed to be lacking in flavor. The bagel sandwich also seemed smaller than I expected for the price. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing,... More

I grew up in the Philadelphia area so I know what good bagels taste like. Bodos bagels are awesome. They have great bagel sandwiches. My favorite is the plain bagel with egg tomato and bacon. You and your family will not go wrong having breakfast lunch or dinner at boat is bagels. It is a local favorite.

We travel a lot and have yet to find a bagel we like better! We always buy a dozen so we can freeze them for later. We also like the bagel sandwiches.

Bagels are phenomenal but their order accuracy was pretty bad. THey got our condiments on the wrong bagels and my wife's veggie bagel had a load of random meat on the paper plate? They get 4 for this (some would have been more irritated) where they should have got 5 stars based on food quality.

If you want a great bagel with fast service and a taste of C'ville ambiance, Bodos is the place to be.
