Nice sandwiches, great place to get something quick on the go. They also have good desserts. I have never been to this location but there is a nice one in the central bus station.

You are not in New York so a "bagel is not a bagel" but this cones fairly close. Good value and very english speaker friendly

Stopped to have a bagel for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Who knew a great bagel could be found in Israel. Lox and cream cheese on a sesame bagel.

Delicious bagels with all normal ingredients, what this place is different than bagels in the USA is that they also use /add middle eastern spices and tahini sauce (upon request) the bagels are delicious and even more yummy with that middle eastern twist to it......gotta try it...only 4 minutes away (walking) to the Kotel or Western Wall within the old...

We had a small brunch for our immediate family around 40 people and ordered platters of cheeses, tuna, egg salad and vegetables. Bagels were included in the order. It was delivered on time and nicely presented. It was a pleasure not to have to prepare the brunch.

If you're from NYC, you'll be disappointed by these bagels. I wasn't a big fan and would advise to skip if you have other options around you!

Ordered from Central Bus Station shop as other Holy Bagel required 24 hour advance order. Picked up order but stuff missing, when I called manager came himself on motorcycle and very apologetically brought missing stuff. Would order from them again.

If you're looking for a good 'dairy' bagel, this is the place in the area. Nice staff and great tuna and fixings. Also, a pretty good bagel selection. Also, a good assortment of treats and coffee.

Description
If you are a looking for a taste of NY with Israel on the side, then try Holy Bagel on Emek Rafaim. Situated near the end of this great street of botiques and retaurants Holy Bagel has NY style bagel with your choice of toppings. I went for the standar lox, cream cheese, tomatoe and onion and wa not disapointed. They have a few locations, no web site. But here's a 10% off coupon http://www.eluna.com/rest%5CHolyBagel.asp?mumu=449
