By far the absolute best bagels around! Handmade there in the shop. The shop is locally owned and an avid supporter of the community! They have sandwiches for lunch, bagels for breakfast, bagel sandwiches, specialty coffee, you will not find a better Bagel joint anywhere in the Knoxville area!

Fresh made bagels daily but so much more. Wood fired pizza and special desserts you cannot find anywhere else. My favorite breakfast is a sourdough bagel with Bandito spread. Support your mom and pops, so much better than the chains.

Stayed two weeks in Oak Ridge and went to the Hot Bagel Co most mornings for fresh, good, Italian style coffee and delicious freshly baked bagels. Simple surrounds, but Tom and the team were super friendly.

Hot Bagel Company has the best bagels, sammies, coffee and service in Oak Ridge. They cater as well, lunch or dinner, and deliver. Great for big groups or just you needing a good cup of coffee and a bagel! Fresh, hot, great.

Best pumpernickel bagels in the knoxville area. I used to stop by quite often for the muffaletta sandwich but they changed the recipe a year or two back. Can't recommend lunch here anymore

The owner really cares about her town and provides great conversation and great food! The coffee was delicious and the service was fast. If we ever get back to Oak Ridge, we will definitely visit here again.

I ordered the salmon lox bagel was not fresh, the salmon was extra fishy and the whole thing just wasn't that great it seemed really expensive to

Hot Bagel hash the best bagels outside of NYC. Their food is always freshly prepared and tastes wonderful. The portions are enormous. When it comes to freshly baked bread you can't find it any better than Hot bagel

The walnut raisin cream cheese is wonderful and they put a generous portion on each bagel. There will be people waiting for the opening sign to flick on every morning so they must be doing something right.

Place is a great bagel shop, I had the chicken salad on a sporty bagel and it was quite delicious! They also have a wood fired brick oven. Friendly staff! OK... running out of things to say about a bagel place :).
