Top notch bagel. Yes it's a little different than Nah Yorkahs (wife is from NY I can get away with it) bagels but it's mighty close to mom and pop shops there. All ingredients are excellent quality no matter what you get. Also they recently expanded so it's not quite so packed. Even when packed rarely have I waited longer... More

newly remodeled and expanded, the absolute best place in Montrose for a breakfast bagel, a lunch bagel or any time you want a good, fresh chewy, perfectly baked treat. There are really no bad choices here, so come often and come hungry

My husband and I were visiting Montrose for the weekend while exploring the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and we ate here 3 times. Definitely the best place for breakfast and lunch in Montrose. The bagels are delicious and soft. For lunch we tried the cranberry, turkey sandwich the roast beef and horseradish sandwich both of which were great. I'd... More

Local hangout... Great variety of bagels, sandwich options, sweet treats and specialty coffees... The breakfast bagel sandwich with coffee combo is a good value. Recently the the new owners have added space with local artists on display. They also host an outdoor space both in front with bistro style tables and the back with a more picnic style.

Lots of options for bagels along with delicious assortment of cream cheeses. Breakfast sandwiches, muffins, croissants, etc. Great selection of coffee and torani flavorings. I had an onion bagel that was tasty, but seemed just a bit undercooked. The crowning glory was the fantastic "lite veggie" cream cheese! It was loaded with crunchy veggies and had a wonderfully fresh, creamy... More

Full disclosure: I've been a fan of Backstreet Bagels since they opened many years ago. Through numerous incarnations, locations, and owners, the business has maintained its high standard for food products and service. From coast to coast, we've honestly never found a better bagel. Our favorites are the cinnamon crunch bagel with vanilla raisin schmear and the sausage/egg breakfast bagel.... More

Lox bagel is amazing! I eat here at least once a week it is so good. I have never dined in but it's a cozy, quiet atmosphere. They take call ahead orders so you don't have to wait. Large selection and delicious food!

Cozy inside and out! Back patio is a relaxing, inviting spot to get caught up with a friend or read a book. Hands down the best coffee in town!!! My favorite blend is Black Canyon. I don't eat bagels so they make me a special paleo plate! A must go to place!!!

Robyn you are very kind! One of these days we may talk you into a bagel but I fear you will never go back. In the mean time, we will always have the Black Canyon blend hot and ready for you. Thank you for your very positive review! Scott More

This place is good! Bagels are a bit small and need some more time in the oven, but hey, they do taste like real bagels. All the trimming available, friendly staff, cozy digs, it's all there for your pleasure. Sit down, bagel up while reading the local press and enjoy!

Thanks for your feedback Oliver! Bagel making is indeed an art and it means a lot to get some guidance from a true New Yorker. I wonder if you ended up with a "smaller than average" bagel as those sometimes (despite our intent to keep them all the same) sneak their way out to a customer. I am pleased that... More
