Have always found their bagels are the best in the area. My personal favorite is the sesame bagel. The bagel is loaded with the seeds.

Huge fat fluffy fresh bagels! Worth the long line on Sundays. Expensive when you order toppings but also worth it to not make another stop.

Oh my, what a selection. You will have difficulty choosing but once you do, you will be glad you did. The bagels are terrific.

Very good food, but if the close time is 5pm why is the grill shut down at 3? There are a lot of people that take their lunch between 3 and 4 and many who may want to grab their dinner on the way home if they get off in that same time period. I would like to give it... More

This place is super busy because they sell the best bagels around. They also have great sandwiches for lunch. If you want a flagel (flat bagel) you better get there early. Get ready to stand in line!

They make the bagels righ in front of you! They have many kinds of doughs and toppings as well. Can't wait to come back and try something different! The staff is kind and helpful. Perfect!

Been here a few times. Bagels are AWESOME and if they werent I would not have come back. But the staff could "Brighten the whole room just by leaving it" - to use a phrase my mom used to use. Why frown so much?? I also hate the line. They use the same line to order and pickup and it... More

The bagels are big and doughy, just like I want them to be, Lots of kinds and cream cheese flavors to choose from. Sandwiches are around 8 bucks, slightly more than other bagel shops, and a bagel with flavored cream cheese is $3.50, also on the high end,.. Overall, a tasty find.

I had my first NY bagel from Kettleman's, and I probably will never have a bagel from anyone else! They were cripsy on the outside and so light and fluffy on the inside. They were HUGE as well! Half a bagel was enough for breakfast! I went back before I left for the airport and picked up a baker's dozen... More
