“Best for bagels!”
Review of Carmelli

Carmelli
Ranked #92 of 293 Bakeries in London
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Carmelli bagels are truly delicious. They are just perfect! Nothing beats grabbing a fresh Carmelli bagel and munching it there and then. Perfect chewy texture. I give them the edge over Daniels, the other big Jewish bakery around Golders Green.

Super long opening hours too! Highly recommended

I like Carmelli food, but they seem to have difficulty retaining staff. I live in South London, so I do not go there all that often and the people serving are always different. The standard of service varies between very good and borderline unacceptable.

Yesterday I gave them £20 and received back change from £10. They insisted I had given them ten and that they had rung ten at the till (which is not the same thing.)
I know I gave them twenty. I only had two tens that I got from the cash point the day before. I still had them after I paid them.
I went to the cash point because I needed a ten and only had twenties so I know that there were no other tens in my wallet.
I visually checked the note before I gave it to them and it was a twenty.

I should probably have made a huge fuss and called the police, but I didn't want to risk anyone losing their job, so I didn't.

However, I will not be going back their again. In future I will buy things over the road in Paradise Bakery who are also very good. I like Carmelli things, but I can live without them.

I used their take out service to cater for a function and found the office staff extremely helpful. When I picked up my order it was beautifully presented and the quality was superb and exactly what I'd asked for.
