Great still made the old fashion way. Best lox and cream cheese ever. Love the bagels, half moons etc.

My kids are 4th generation to come to katz for bagels. My father brought them home every Friday night. My son and I are "onion out" fanatics. I call ahead to order 18 or so but admit we'll gladly wait the half hour for them. Crisp on the top, have caramelized onion filling the hole, and the bottom is kinda... More

Their Pizza Bagels are all I've eaten and gotten, and they are incredible. The best. Such an awesome food item. Not sure on anything else.

Love the bagels. This place is an institution. Great for home and a treat when you visit people. Never heard a complaint about the quality of the food. My sister loves the bagel dogs!

Bagels are ok, they only offer a few varieties maybe 4/5? The guy behind the counter is crude and rude. Still I go every so often, put up with the rudeness mainly for the cream cheese (which is whipped...my favorite).

This little shop has the best bagels that I have enjoyed since my childhood. Many varieties, sometimes hot from the oven, along with home made cream cheeses and some other bakery items. The pizza bagels are absolutely delish too! Katz is worth the ride to Chelsea and has two free 15-minute parking spots right alongside. Yum!

I grew up in Chelsea, and have been eating Katz Bagels since 1947. Nothing has changed except the price, and the bagels are bigger than when I was a kid. The pizza bagels out of the oven are a ten plus. The onion bagels with the onions baked on the out side are to die for. I live in Florida,... More

Try any bagel, but you have to experience the "pizza" bagel. All the bagels are always fresh and delicious.
