A staple of Asheville NC, Bruegger's Bagels has a super good selection of bagels and will toast, cut, and whatever else you want to get you the bagel you want. Am a repeat customer.

While in Asheville we stopped at Bruegger's several times. The food was fresh, tasty and quick. The coffee was great! I will visit again!

this is a chain restaurant and the bagels are not quite what you get in NYC but they are good. Flavored cream cheese is available - my favorite is walnut

Bruegger's has an excellent selection of delicious bagels along with a wide variety cream cheese. Their coffee and drink selection hits the mark as well. They miss being excellent due to the fact that the bathroom has been filthy whenever I have visited.

On our trip from Asheville to Houston, via auto, we needed a quick bite for the trip ahead. They opened at 6:30, so we checked it out. O.K it's not your NYC bagel, but chewy and baked perfect. They boil them and bake them, with all kinds of toppings and made a perfect egg ,(fresh) ,cheese bagel for the road.

Oh my gosh this is the best bagel store I have ever been to! Friendly people and the bagels were out of this world. Ate there twice and took 2 dozen bagels home!

Everything at Brueggar's is delicious. I love the bagels. The cream cheese is great. They even have burgers! And the breakfast sandwiches are really well put together.

Even though it's a chain, Bruegger's has the best bagels I've found in Asheville. All of the major supermarket chains -- Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Ingles, Harris-Teeter, BiLo, etc. -- have their in-house and other bagels, but without except they are too "bready" and don't have the real Queens bagel mouth-feel and taste. Bruegger's versions are very good, if not... More

Bruegger's Bagel Bakery has many varieties of bagels and you can take home a baker's dozen or have one toasted to eat there. They also have many types of cream cheese but my current favorite is herb scallion on toasted pumpernickel. I'm from New York City so I'm picky about my bagels and Bruegger's are the closest I've had to... More

Unfortunately what many of us believe is what makes New York bagels so great is the water. And the history. But Bruegger's comes close. And they have a special package deal with bagels and smear on Wednesdays.
