Went here last night very disappointed all I can say is the end of an era. Bagels double in price to what they were and rock hard more like a crusty roll! We have been regulars since the 80s defo won?t be going back again such a shame

It?s a well known place to get bagels from and rightly so. The quality is good and the price is low. I get them with no filling to take home but the menu is big! If you?re on brick lane it?s worth waiting for

Salt beef bagel is to die for. Salmon and cream cheese is also phenomenal. I'm lactose intolerant and I'd risk it all haha. It's very busy and not in the nicest of areas if you are here at night time it can be a little scary if you are not local. You can't eat in, it's just a take away without anywhere to sit and eat. Very very reasonable price!

This place has been here forever, well done to the owners for somehow maintaining that quality that they have had since the beginning. Very busy place, and the staff use this to perhaps rush your order, but the bagels are one of a kind! Salt beef was the best I've ever had!

The best salt beef by far very reasonably priced and open 24 hrs a day can que for a while certain times of the day but I gueythat shows how good the bakery is?.

Tasty salt beef bagel. Get it with mustard and pickled. Pickled could be more evenly cut so the bagel holds together better.

Went here after seeing it on TripAdvisor. Very reasonable prices for London and lots of choices in the cakes. Queued up like everyone else, was praying I wouldn't get served by the older lady behind the counter but yep, I got her. Felt rushed and hurried along to choose then pay. Wasn't sure where to go next to collect so felt in the way but just followed what the others did. The salt beef was fine but cut so thick it fell out of the bagel. Advice would be - be quick, make your mind up before getting in line and take some handwipes with you!!

smoked salmon and pickles in a beigel its the best and the only place to go is the east end the beigel bake

I'm trying not to be biased, but New York City bagels are far superior. Having said that I thought the price was right and the bagels were good.

Dropped in to get a bagel with some friends. We all bought the salt beef because that seemed to be what the other customers were getting. The salt beef tasted so processed. If you?ve ever eaten spam; this was similar. My order was literally chucked in a paper bag so I couldn?t eat it as a bagel. One of my friends got smoked salmon which he said was nice but then again, it?s hard to mess up smoked salmon. Maybe go for that if you?re thinking about dropping in, although in the area there are countless good food places.

I went here for a late lunch with a friend who recommended it. Apparently it has quite a following as there was a long line at 2:00 in the afternoon. It?s a somewhat grungy hole in the wall (no tables, you order and walk out) selling bagels, bread, and sandwiches made with bagels and bread. They also have a selection of pastries. I had the classic salted beef bagel with mustard (pickles also available). The meat was moist and mildly flavored but they cut it into thick chunks rather than thin slices which makes eating it a bit messy to eat, with pieces falling out often. The only real disappointment was they used yellow mustard instead of an English mustard, which my friend said they used to use. I also got a piece of carrot cake which was large, moist and delicious. I would go back but probably get the beef on on bread rather than a bagel which might make it easier to eat.

Since, I'm vegan, I ate a plain beigel from both Beigel Bake and the Beigel Shop. I didn't order any filling as there was no vegan cream cheese option and I wanted to compare the beigels themselves from both bakeries without any interference from fillings. The beigels at Beigel Bake taste identical to those of the Beigel Shop. British beigels are heavy and doughy whilst NYC bagels are lighter and chewier providing a more pleasant bread experience. BTW, the Bagel Hole in Park Slope Brooklyn real does make the best bagels in NYC.

If you are expecting the staff to have charm and demonstrate excellent customer service then you are going to be disappointed. But thats not what you come here for its the tasty beigels and the best salt beef in London. Queue up, decide what you want while queueing, say what you want, pay and then go somewhere quieter and enjoy.

Lovely thick slab of salt beef, with mustard and gherkins. The sweet pastries are a must try as well.

If your looking for a very good bagel, this is the place to go. The Smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel was delicious. 8/10.

Tatsy and hugely generous portions of meat, but it wasn't an outstanding flavour and the servers weren't very friendly. Plus we ordered 2 not 3 bagels so ended up paying for the extra one we didn't want because we didn't want to explain it wasn't ours and it go to waste due to covid. Nice, but we walked a fair distance for it and got super hyped up for something that just didn't meet expectations. Worth it if you're hungry and in the area, but don't make an effort to go.

This is rough and ready East London at its finest. The staff are perfectly amicable if you?re quick and don?t dilly dally around. I see a lot of complaints about them, but this is GREAT food sold at cheap prices. I see the negative reviews about staff and I get it, but equally this isn?t Waitrose. Choose what you want before you get round to ordering. Be direct, don?t faff about and you?ll have a great experience. I bought a dozen bagels and a salt beef bagel today and it was wonderful, start to finish.

After having an amazing curry at City Spice, my husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary with some bagels as there?s always room for dessert!!!! The sweeet bagels hit the spot. Lived up all to the hype!

Me and my husband had a a gal off. Salt beef and smoked salmon and cream cheese from both. Cut in half blind tasted. I preferred this one my husband preferred the yellow one beigal shop. So was a dead heat. Loved them all and will defiantly have another next time in London. Staff where friendly too. I thought the yellow one bagel was sweeter.

It is a very rough and picturesque place. Unfortunately if you want to leave with more than a plain bagel you shouldn't be a vegetarian. On a positive note, I heard that the salmon and cream cheese is a big hit.

I have been going to Beigel bake for years and simply put, it is by far the best beigels ever. The salt beef with pickles and mustard is better than the ones I have had in NYC!

Quality of the beigels - superb Good conversation Visited on a Sunday evening - unplanned. Good to know they are always there with good food and good service Have visited many times over the years. The atmosphere is honest and not pretentious Real life surrounds you and your beigel Bon appetite

Took-away two bagels to enjoying on the train back from a lovely weekend in London. One was cream cheese and the other crab-Mayo. Tasty tasty goodness. Five stars!

The bagels are of course delicious but the service was horrible. My friend was served first and treated nicely and given eye contact and they smiled. I however was given no eye contact not once looked at by any of the women serving me and my bagel was thrown on the counter. We heard them joking and laughing about being careful as they don?t want to get any more bad reviews. I was really upset and angry at how I was treated and put off ever wanting to go back again. I have been a loyal customer for a numbers of years be after this recent experience I?m not sure i would ever go again. Such a shame!

The salt beef bagel was really good but I was given dry, old Challah bread which was a waste of money because didn't get to eat it at all. It's not good business to pass on stale bread to paying customers. Will not be buying from this establishment again.

Fresh beigels, good customer service and a variety of fillings available.

Ordered bagels and desserts for 18.45 It,s now 20.20 and still no sign. Disappointed does not even cover it No Customer service. We were so looking forward to this from an old favourite we have visited for over 20 years. Don?torder unless you don?t care when they deliver because they don?t seem to.
