The bagels here are delicious! They also have sandwiches and other food. My favorite thing is their pizza bagel but their bagel with hummus comes in as a close second. The staff are also very friendly. They only take cash but the trip to the atm is worth it when you consider the great meal you will soon have!

We come here after our morning bicycle rides because the cafe is large so there is almost always room to sit even with the usual crowds. They offer a wide selection of bagels and other breakfast items. The bagels are always fresh and very good for the Boston area. Their bagel sandwiches excellent and well-priced. The coffee is good, not... More

I grew up in nj so I have an "our bagels are better" attitude, but this place is good. I do wish they cooked eggs on a griddle, but great otherwise

I periodically go for breakfast -- a hot coffee, a honey grain bagel toasted with honey walnut cream cheese. A nice neighborhood place to get something to go, or to sit with friends or the morning paper on a weekend. Friendly staff, prompt service.

I started going here every Wednesday morning when my daughter and our neighbor were in middle school. It was a wonderful tradition: Danny or Frem would personally greet us and start our order, and we'd have a lively and relaxing start to the school and work day. Now these girls are adults in their mid-20s, but Danny never fails to... More

A bagel is just a bagel right? Wrong!! Bagels Best bakes a great variety of bagels, our favorite is their fresh, hot, sunflower seed! But the most wonderful thing about a visit to B.B. is that Danny, Sharon, Mike and Zoe know all their customers by name. I get a "hey Johny, how's Lynda?" and a high five every time... More
