“Wow ! Great bagels!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch. Got the lunch deal with chips and a drink. The bagel sandwich with turkey and bacon was terrific. Your choice of toppings and condiments. The bagel was crispy on the outside and chewy inside. Just right!

“THE BEST BAGLE BAKERY EVER.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

The best BAGLE bakery in Gainesville. All bagels are made on site and superb. You are truly blessed if you are lucky enough to arrive and order when they have a fresh batch of bagels.
I love going their for lunch also. One of my faves in town. I will continue to dine here for years to come.

“Quality NY bagels, fair prices & friendly, helpfull staff. It's a WINNER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I've suffered so many of this places competitors over the years: bready bagels, in-authentic toppings, pre-made or bought-in fillings, and either poor service or poor quality. NOT HERE!
The bagels are good, chewy, boiled-and-then-baked NY water bagels, and the large salt crystals on the salt bagels are like you'd find on a pretzel (instead of the sand you get at "Unlimited" places. And the flavored cream cheeses are house-made and topped with FRESH produce. My friends always enjoy the wraps, and no request is too much trouble for the friendly staff. My only criticism, is that the soups (which are part of an otherwise great value soup, sandwich & beverage combo), can be a bit bland or "tinny." Now if they'd only stay open for supper...

“Coffee and bagel once a week or more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

I've been going to this locally owned, fairtrade minded coffee and bagel shop for years - a decade or more. Through that time, the owner has stayed true to his mission of doing business directly with Guatemalan coffee farmers. I can tell the differencebetween this organic coffee and other brands. We only buy coffee from this place. We get the beans and then grind and brew them ourselves at home. When I drink other brands of coffee, I sometimes get a tingly tongue or other suspicious reactions. But those reactions neve happen when I have Bagel Bakery coffee. I enjoy the bagels, too. It's tough to give a specific review since I have been eating here at least once a week for at least a decade - everthing is good. My personal favorites are the honey walnut cream cheese on a cinnamon raison bagel, the spinach artichoke cream cheese on the the hummus, and the fresh orange juice with just about anything. It is on the way to work, so sometimes I just stop in for a large coffee and it is faster than going to a starbucks or gastation (and tastes better than both). We sometimes buy a dozen bagels and freeze them and take them out "as needed" to make breakfast/brunch
