“Lovely Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

The whole Bagel has always been a brilliant place for lunch.There is a huge selection of bagels and fillings, i've tried most and never been disappointed (The New Yorker is my favourite!). All the ingredients are out to see and everything taste fresh. Now in their new shop you can eat in too! Andy is a familiar face behing the counter, he's always attentive and happy to chat.

“I must be missing something”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

I honestly wouldn't think it was the same place after reading the other reviews. Ok so I eat a lot of bagels in a lot of places so I am fussy but for this price, I expected top-notch bagels. What we got were run of the mill and even though the filling combinations sound clever, they just weren't anything special. We didn't order anything on the side, as they came with a "salad". This was a tiny pot of below-average coleslaw and seemed fairly pointless.

Ok so we were all veggies and maybe it's just the veggie bagels that don't hit the spot but when I am paying that amount for a bagel, it should be better than the ones you get on the train station platform! Given all the other choices in Bath we probably won't bother again which is a shame, coz good bagels are amazing!

“Nice little bagel shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

It's hard to find authentic bagels in Britain but these are pretty good. Lots of flavours, very fresh and immensely nice service. The shop is tiny and seems to close rather early but this place is worth supporting. Definitely the best British bagels I've found outside of London.

“Bagel Heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Lots and lots of choice! So many varieties of Bagels, something for everybody. Lots of seating, on 3 levels. Perfect for a quick pit stop to refuel.
