“Not True NY Style Bagels”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Having eaten hundreds of NY style bagels in my life, I can tell you that these were not those!

The Everything bagel we ordered should have been called the "Nothing Bagel" so short on toppings it was.

The company website says they are boiled and then baked but these did not seem so. They were dried out and stale tasting as if they were made the day before. Even still, true NY style bagels are airy and chewy on the inside with a crunchy exterior, which these were not.

They tasted more like Lenders or Publix brand.

The coffee there was watered down like most Florida coffee sad to say.

The best part was the cream cheese spread.

Somehow, this place gets people to line up for this product. Why? I'll never know!

“Bagels??”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

I didn't know you could review bagels? Having moved from NY and know bagels this is by far the best and quite honestly better than most NY bagels. $9.95 bakers dozen, plus they have coffee, sandwiches etc. some types run out so call early and reserve and pick up later. They have a punch card so the 11 th dozen is free. This is guaranteed good.

“awesome bagels”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Friend of mine living in Fort Myers has been raving about this place for a long time, so when I was recently visiting, we had to go and have breakfast. She was right. Handmade fresh bagels are absolutely awesome. I went for a coconut bagel with egg and cheese, and then a jalapeno bagel with sun-dried tomato and basil spread. What an amazing combination of flavors. I only stayed at Fort Myers for 2 days, so I did not have a chance to try more of their bagels, but I'll be back for sure. If you're ever craving bagels, The Bagel Factory is a must.
