Folks have always told me that Brookside is a great bagel shop and I finally checked it out recently and I have to agree. Great selection of bagels, and also a fantastic selection of spreads and sandwiches. There's a good reason why there is a line out the door a lot of times. Staff are super awesome and friendly to.

Love this place! Fresh bagels with a wide range of flavors- quick and friendly service- great bagel sandwiches. We are here at least twice a week.

The bagels here are the best ever. Homemade cream cheese-regular or flavored, add to the experience. A great place to satisfy your palet.

I don't stop here as often as I'd like because there always seems to be a line. But when I do I am not disappointed. Big, chewy bagels. Can't go wrong.

Great little gem in town, bagels are delicious and fresh daily, the sandwiches are decent, fresh made cream cheese is fabulous. Coffee could be better. If you are a bagel person it is a must visit.

The egg sandwiches have been eaten twice and each time are dripping with grease and just have a bad taste and make me feel awful. Up charge for cheese/ specialty bagels is too steep It's always super busy so plan accordingly. Bagels are good but I wish they used better quality flour and eggs. Always smell like grease every time... More

Busy spot for Sunday breakfast. We stopped in on our way out of town. Sausage egg and cheese sandwich on everything bagel. Iced coffee was bitter and tasted like the hot coffee that got old and was put in the fridge. Bagel was good and the sandwich was filling.
