Description: BetterBagels are bagels made from the best ingredients without any unnecessary additives. We use organic flour and honey as our main ingredients. Since we use the traditional New York style process to produce BetterBagels, the dough develops for at least 12 hour to get its full flavor. Each bagel is than boiled, baked, turned and baked again. This gives BetterBagels their characteristic bite and delicious taste. BetterBagels are made fresh at the Village Bakery in Leiden where you can follow the production process in an open bakery, while you enjoy your coffee.

Small gem for a coffee or tea with a delicious and healthy bagel. The village bakery makes them in the true original style but at the same time experiments with varieties (spelt, rye, brioche, scone, potato!...) and almost every combo possible. Everything is freshly made, staff is friendly and I find the atmosphere always relaxed. Being tucked away in Leiden’s historic city center this is one of my favorite Sunday morning hunts. Also, don’t miss out the best NY cheesecake in town.

Excellent bagels and the friendliest owner and staff. If my daughter had her way, she'd eat the brioche BLT every day.

I went to this place with an American bagel lover and he really liked this bagel place. We should be happy to have such a nice bagel place in Leiden. It also cool to see how they make the bagels.

Great small bagel shop, where the owner makes great bagels by hand. Better than most bagels I had in the US. Staff is very friendly.
