The Bagel Place

$$$$(215) 551-2387

The Bagel Place is a Queen Village staple and it’s easy to see why. The easygoing space–that we love to head to for a coffee date or to get work done–has bagels down to a science. When you walk in, you’ll see endless metal baskets packed with flavors like french toast, onion, blueberry, and rosemary. The bagels are perfectly balanced between light and dense, and have a nice crackle from their blistered, super toasty exterior. Toppings are a la carte but we usually go for their house-made, super creamy honey walnut spread or a bagel sandwich loaded with fluffy eggs and melted American cheese, and wash it all down with a La Colombe iced coffee.
