Our hostel didn't serve breakfast, so we came here for a bagel sandwich and a coffee. The bagels are nicely done and they fill them well up. They don't cost much either. For two sandwiches and two coffees we paid around a tenner.

I had never been here previously and popped in for lunch last Saturday whilst waiting to meet my daughter. I don't normally eat bagels; however, I found my choice of chicken bagel was freshly made to order and tasted delicious. I was made to feel welcome and enjoyed the ambience and friendliness of the staff. I will certainly visit again... More

I enjoyed my bagel but I've been twice now and the service is very slow and the staff don't seem to enjoy their jobs. I haven't eaten in and I'm not sure I would want to but if you are in the centre and fancy something to eat on the go I would recommend it as an option.

Stopped by for a quick lunch here. I got a pizza bagel, and my partner got the Chicken Caesar Bagel. £2 for the Pizza Bagel (half) and £4.10 for the Chicken Caesar Bagel. Whilst both tasted nice, neither were value for money. I mean, half a bagel for £2 with some cheese, tomato sauce and small peppers cut up? Additionally... More

After convincing my boyfriend to have a bagel here, we were met by a Northern Irish tall waitress barking wait times and rules at us, obviously to put us off as it was busy. My bf wanted to leave at this point but out of principle I didn't want to be put off by her. The poor girl at the... More

Came here for a brunch around 11am. My mom was rather fussy and asked for all the parts of the bagel to come separately and they were more than happy to do so. Really nice cheap and lovely atmosphere

My boyfriend and I regularly come to Bath for a spot of shopping but neither of us knew this place existed (yet when we asked, we found out it been on the street for nearly 10 years!). After several minutes whittling down our options, so many yummy fillings to choose from (and then there's your bagel choice to be made!),... More

Went here for a Saturday lunch with the kids whilst visiting Bath. Lovely menu but took more than 30 mins to get our food. We ordered drinks for the kids at same time as our food - smoothies - and they took just as long. Overall tasty food but very disappointing speed or service.

Popped in here on the way to the train station and had a Mighty Swiss. It was delicious! The staff member that served me was super efficient and friendly. I also used the toilet and was really impressed at the level of cleanliness (I avoid public toilets as a rule, but at 8 months pregnant I had to go). I... More

This is a hard one to rate. We felt the service was slower than we would like - with very few places to stand to order or wait. When we had ordered we had to wait even longer. Whilst waiting and having nothing more to do with our time than watch, I watched the lady put her hand into the... More
