I've been coming here for years to get my weekend bagel fix, and I have never been disappointed. It's difficult to find a good bagel south of New York City, but these folks have got 'em. I didn't think it was possible, given the soft and salty Florida water, but they've figured it out. Chewy interiors with real flavor, slightly hard, but thin, crust on the outside. You can even get a bialy, that strange warped bagel invented in Bialystok Poland more than a century ago.

You can have bagels any way you want: in a bag, sliced or not, toasted with any number of toppings, as a lox & cream cheese sandwich. They also have numerous varieties of flavored cream cheeses, to eat or take home, coffee, juice, and now: freshly-made donuts. There are also sandwiches in typical and unusual configurations, such as "The Strange Bird," turkey, lettuce, sprouts, cream cheese and cranberry sauce, served on any bagel, 4 kinds of bread, or a croissant. My favorite: just lox & cream cheese on a toasted egg bagel, with onion, tomato, and capers for $5.75, less than half what you'd pay in the Big Apple.

Believe me, this place is WAY better than the ones named after the famous physicist, the stars from Seattle that cost big bucks, or the ones with the missing "G". Yes, it can get a tad crowded on weekend mornings, but the hardworking staff of non-gum-chewing, non-teenagers works fast and hard. Your patronage here is rewarded with snappy service of delicious food at very reasonable prices. It's a small storefront crowded by several tables and window counter seats inside, and 3-4 tables outside facing 4th Street. But on a Sunday morning, the smell of coffee and toasting bagels hits your olfactory nerve centers and suddenly, all is right with the world.

I stopped by here one morning for a bagel and was Very pleased! I'd hear from some people that they were disappointed in the bagels but I'm SURE they are mistaken!

I am a HUGE fan of sun dried tomato bagels but I do not see them often so I was VERY excited that they had them!!! A sun dried tomato bagel with Veggie cream cheese, does it get much better then that!?!?!

I can't wait to go back because they had some AMAZING looking donuts, some with fruit loops on them! I'm very glad they are only a few blocks away!

We love St. Pete Bagel Co! We've been going there for 8 years and it's never been a disappointment. It can get crowded on the weekend, so go early, but it's worth the wait!
