Description: BetterBagels are bagels made from the best ingredients without any unnecessary additives. We use organic flour and honey as our main ingredients. Since we use the traditional New York style process to produce BetterBagels, the dough develops for at least 12 hour to get its full flavor. Each bagel is than boiled, baked, turned and baked again. This gives BetterBagels their characteristic bite and delicious taste. BetterBagels are made fresh at the Village Bakery in Leiden where you can follow the production process in an open bakery, while you enjoy your coffee.

Lovely Bagel cafe - choose which type of bagel you want, there is a good one made of beer batter, and then choose your filling. Quaint cafe, reasonably priced, very fresh, oh and ask to see the bagel cutter in action!

Home made traditional style delicious chewy soft crispy bagels with mouthwatering spread; le patron Frank knows his métier! Interesting to watch the process of making bagels.Friendly girls, great service. Small cosy place, atmosphere like a New York place. Watch Joe the slicer! Also the best bread in Holland for sale: 'Brood van Menno'. Maybe this place should be kept secret...

This place has the best bagels and super good coffee as well! And the prices are way below that of the competition, with a friendly service as a bonus.

What i cannot understand is the complete idiot that called the owner rude and downgraded his service. We have received nothing but good customer service as well as quality bagels from Better Bagels. My visit was complete with a bagel that i considered equal too if not better than what I can recieve in my home in America. SUZ B, is nothing more than a dimwit who would not know quality if it punched him/her in the mouth.

I have not come across any other bagels in the Netherlands that come this close too those I've tasted in the US, but this is 99% if not a full 100%. Nothing better than an 'everything' bagel on saturday morning with cream cheese and a slow coffee for me, nice and simple. On the way back I usually bring a '6 pack' for the family for lunch and don't mention I already had one so I can have a 2nd. My kids prefer them with 'smeerkaas' i.o. cream cheese (....real dutch kids)
