“Great Bagels, very low price, reasonable pastries”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

Everyone loves the bagels and cream cheese there. Most people like the pastries. Coffee is nice always. Closed Saturdays I believe.

“Great Bagels and pastries”
Reviewed July 27, 2009

Kupel's Bakery is great. My first and only complaint is that they observe Shabbat and are closed on Saturday! OK, while that may not be a valid complaint, its the only thing that makes me unhappy about Kupels. Otherwise, the bagels are great. Their spreads, which provide a great variety, compliment the bagel perfectly. Also, if you have a sweet tooth, their pastries are affordable and tasty. If you love a good bagel, this is the best Boston has to offer1

“Awesome bagels... Do not...”
Reviewed May 2, 2009

Awesome bagels... Do not toast these bagels, they are perfect as is. Good Nova salmon and the freshly mixed cream cheeses (such as the chive whipped cream cheese) are awesome. I'm not a huge fan of their challah as it's a bit too eggy and dry but it's definitely the best place for bagels. They also have tons of Dr. Browns sodas, for those fans. FYI, it's kosher for the frummy crowd looking for good parve and/or dairy eats. Haven't tried anything else from them yet but fully intend to. I only give them 3 instead of four stars because of the disappointing challah. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

“Good service but the bagels are nothing exceptional, if dry and halfway between toasted and untoasted.”
