Panzer’s has been in St. John’s Wood since 1956. Opened by two refugees from Austria and Czechoslovakia (Mr. Panzer and Mr. Vogl respectively) it quickly became a favourite for Jewish deli goods and, since then, has established itself as a legendary delicatessen. The smoked salmon is essential (the only question is whether you go dry or oily), as are the bagels, but there’s also an excellent sushi counter these days (from Sushi Atelier), and all the other groceries you could need.
Where we've featured it
Filled with smoked salmon? Or are you after something Montreal-style? Either way, these are the best bagels in London.
