When we had three boys at home we got a dozen bagels every other weekend. I hadn't been in a while. I got a dozen bagels for a social event at 7am on a Saturday. I had only a short wait and fresh hot bagels. They are great on the consistency and the staff is friendly. Still my favorite bagel... More

This is the only phrasing that may even approach describing the staff of this restaurant accurately. Upon being told that there were no jalapeño cheddar bagels 20 minutes after they opened, the person behind the counter deadpanned that at least I wouldn't have to pay the extra 50 cents for that particular bagel. Wow.

I have been to many Brueggers locations . The bagels are great – the rest of the food is great – but this location in Eastgate is too small for the clientele it serves. The line is consistently out the door . There is no provision for ordering bagels quickly – you must stand in line with patrons ordering complex... More

Morning bagel sandwiches were delicious. Of course the coffee was the best. We take home bagels for the next day

They are frequently out of bagels even early in the day. Many times bagels are undersized or undercooked. People generally unfriendly. Love brueggers bagels but not this place.

I've been to Bruegger's several times and they do have many varieties of bagels and cream cheeses (including low cal) and sandwich fillings.

We buy a dozen bagels at Brueggers a couple of times a month on Sunday morning and have for years. They are the best bagel in Chapel Hill. The family wants cinnamon raisin, blueberry, poppy,and sesame, and I get an assortment of savory bagels for sandwiches. The quality is consistent. The staff is wonderful and friendly.

This was our breakfast stop for 3 straight days! The employees were happy, kind, and helpful. I had the salmon bagel, which I loved. My daughter had a bagel with egg and cheese, and my son had cream cheese and bacon.

We had four adults and five kids for a quick breakfast/brunch. Service was good and quick. The bagels were average at best.

I've gone here several times over the past few years, and it seems to be steadily getting worse. The bagels this past week were tough and chewy. They were too tough for the kids to eat.. they gave up after a few bites. We continued, but wondered why. Try elsewhere.
