Recommended to try this place so we did. We had the salmon bagel and a ham relish one. They were ok. Nothing to rave about and my homemade just as nice or better. Fiddly to eat. Maybe with just butter or cream cheese they are easier to eat. Good cup of tea though so 10/10 for that

The store was convenient in that it was on the way to where I was walking and it was open early. I had a breakfast bagel...hashbrown and egg, but it was relatively tasteless and hard. The store was pretty cold early on a winter morning and not very inviting but the coffee was hot. I've eaten a lot of bagels... More

We got dinner here for a reasonable price. We had 1 bagel and 1 Donald Trump pizza. The pizza was massive but tasty. My only complaint is the use of fennel seeds all over the pizza when the description is for Italian fennel sausage - not crumbed sausage and lots of seeds. But for a $12 I'm not going to... More

The Willis Street store was recently refurbished a year or so ago, and I love the décor. I have only had the bagels which are always good.. Sometimes they do run out of bagels and you may only have 3 types of bagels to choose from which can be a tad annoying. They offer a bagel of the day which... More

Whenever we're in Wellington, Wholly Bagels is our go-to place for breakfast. This time my wife had the Rueben while I had the Pilgrim. Both were good, but the Rueben was best, especially with extra sauerkraut. I'm always amazed that Wholly Bagels is so quiet at breakfast time on a weekend.

If you want a bagel or a pizza, you will not be disappointed. Pizzas come in HUGE sizes and all is yum.

First time trying this franchise. Great breakfast deal and generous servings for cost. No trouble substituting hot chocolate for the coffee.

Words cannot describe the disgraceful and threatening service by the manager. Willis Street is Wholly Bagels in name only

Attention to detail does not live here. On my Sunday morning visit no member of staff had on what used to be the uniform here. No store t shirt in its place sweatshirt jeans and uggs. Not the best first impression. Our table was scratched and sticky ..... the bagels were fine but next time I would get them to... More
