Staff can be totally rude or extremely friendly... A crap shoot! Angel cream donuts are to DIE for! A great mix of bakery goods... How much is made on site? Platters have improved with new owner but she is totally not from Mo. Co.

Several years ago while in New York I had my first black/white cookie. For many years the only place i could find a "real" black/white cookie was here. Since the new owners have taken over, they actually have some left by the time I get there at noon. In the old days, if you didn't call ahead, they were gone by 9:00 am. BTW, they are still as good as they ever were.

My family and I go here most weekends after Church! It is amazing! The bagels are delicious and the service is outstanding . I feel like I'm back in NYC! The new owners are super friendly ! Everything on the menu is to die for though I thoroughly recommend the asiago cheese bagel with strawberry cream cheese ! YUM!

I am disappointed that the bagels are not better. There are two Einstein Brothers mini restaurants and bagel bakers in nearby Gaithersburg and both are more efficiently run and both offer better bagel values. Yes, and the Einstein deli offerings are also superior. The new management at Royal Bagel has lessened the quality and value of both the the deli and the bakery. Many sweet offerings are over iced with too sweet frostings. I hope that with more experience that the new managers will get back on an improved track. I wish them luck.

Things changed when the original owners sold the place. Portions are smaller, baked goods not as well done. The new owner is cutting corners and it shows. Used to love this place, now it's just OK. My personal favorite it the Bronx - Hot Pastrami on Rye with Swiss and Thousand Island. There's just not as much of it as there used to be.
