Stopped here for lunch while doing research at UVA for a project at Flex. Got cream cheese and lox on an onion bagel, which was good. Had tea, which I found was the only drink with free refills. I don't get that. Probably because it's a college town.

Bodo's has, for years, been one of the "go to" places for breakfast and lunch. It never ceases to please.

Awesome bagels and cream cheese. The sandwiches are good too but typically I just go with an everything bagel with cream cheese.

Heading to Bodo's on The Corner is a highlight of a Charlottesville trip. The bagels are soft and doughy rather than heavy and crusty, and when you order a sandwich, it is generously filled. I've eaten at some of the posher places here, too, but really, I could have had Bodo's bagel sandwiches for every meal and been quite satisfied.... More

This is my go to choice for fast breakfast in Charlottesville. I come here every year and photos is a must stop. The bagels are excellent and fresh and my usual is an egg breakfast sandwich. Today I got an everything bagel double egg sandwich with ham and it was excellent as expected.

One of the best fast food places on UVA campus. They also have tables outdoors. The service is fast and good. They have a large variety. My favourite is bacon, tomato and lettuce. The prices are reasonable.

Bodo's has two locations in Charlottesville and is hugely popular. Be prepared to wait in line on weekends, but it moves fast. They have very authentic bagels of every flavor, and delicious bagel sandwiches made to order. They also have excellent homemade soups. A great place to go grab a bite to eat for breakfast or lunch. A local small... More

UVA students had been waiting almost 10 years for a Bodo's to make it to the corner. Rumors of its imminent arrival had become an insider joke: "The Corner will get a Bodo's before X happens..." Well, it finally opened in 2005 and you really can't imagine the corner without it. A lot of New Yorkers like to turn their... More

Best ever bagels in the world! Many varieties and the prices of the sandwiched are extremely reasonable.

On a recent trip to Charlottesville, my husband insisted we go to a bagel place he and my daughter had visited. Since he can tend toward hyperbole, I had both high expectations and a healthy skepticism. The high expectations won. We had bagel sandwiches and then got a dozen to go. My smoked turkey on an everything bagel was amazing,... More
