If you get there before 8 on a weekend you're in good shape - I showed up at 9:30 on a Sunday morning and there was a long line. To their credit, they keep it moving - If you're in a hurry, show up earlier. The bagels are credit and the kids behind the counter do a good job.

When we visit Fairfax, Bagel Buddies tops our to-do list. They make a wide variety of New York style bagels on the premises and gourmet cream cheeses. Sandwiches include a classic New York Reuben and a Manhattan variation with pastrami added and coleslaw instead of sauerkraut. The Little Italy is filled with cold cuts and peppers. The Queens and the... More

Thanks to convenient opening hours, my children and I were able to enjoy some delicious bagels at 3 pm on a recent weekday afternoon. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for great bagels in the Fairfax area. They even have a selection of children's books for young diners to look at!

I gave this place a terrible review in April and thought I was a bit harsh. I went back today. The bagels are very good and they try their best with the service. Glad I came back.

The bagels are good. But this place is absurd. Go in on a Saturday morning at 8 and plan to wait in line for 20 minutes. It's not because of the food - it's because there is NO management here. They hire kids to work behind the counter, yet there is no one taking orders. The place is small -... More

We had high hopes and went out of our way to go here because of the reviews. If you like bagels, don't bother. Their bagels are just rolls with holes in the center. They weren't bad tasting, they just weren't bagels. I'm guessing they've never had actual bagels before.

I eat bagels everywhere I go and the bagels here could easily stack up against the bagels you get in Brooklyn. Two thumbs up. Plus the service here is a heck of a lot better hence some of the best bagels anywhere!

This was an accidental find. The hotel I am staying at doesn't have complimentary coffee and their breakfast prices are outrageous. Wandered out in search of coffee and found this gem. I canny wait to go back tomorrow!

The breakfast sandwiches were amazing! Not super fast service because it's busy in there, but the sandwiches were made to order, and definitely worth the wait. Loved the wheat supreme bagel (like and everything but whole wheat!). Great coffee drinks, too.
