Since we don't have Bruegger's Bagels in Indiana, we needed one last fix on our way home from visiting family in Iowa. As always, our breakfast sandwiches and coffee were on point. Hilda and Elizabeth helped us with our big bagel bundle order to go, we will get to enjoy these awesome bagels for a few days upon our return... More

Had lunch here this week and was disappointed with the sandwiches because they had very little in the way of meats etc. Most of what you get is Bagel, or bread. I had a turkey sandwich and at the most it had three slices in the middle tapering down to nothing at the edge. The bagels are always great and... More

I have spent many a hours sitting in this Brueggers doing homework. The people are exceptionally gracious about people staying awhile as long as you have made a purchase. The food is great as well!

The workers here are always pleasant when they greet you and efficient making your order. The food always is delicious too! My favorite thing is that they are not a fast food restaurant, but i feel like i get in and out in the morning just as fast as i would in a drive thru line!

That's it. By far the best bagels you'll ever have. I've been addicted for over 30 years. I love the expanded menu but when I'm feeling nostalgic, just a little turkey and olive pimento cream cheese and I'm back in Iowa City all over again. Bring back the smoked turkey, too.

Bagels and flavored cream cheeses, plus soup and sandwiches are on the menu. Everything is reliably good, and is a healthy fast food option. The staff at this location did their best to keep up with the heavy lunchtime traffic. If you do not have the time to spend in a full-service restaurant, or have just been to New York... More

We absolutely love the bagels and food served here! Love that they serve breakfast sandwiches all day. We always buy some of the day-old bagels out of the bargain basket to take back home to Oklahoma with us. We wish we had a chain of them around our area because we would definitely be frequent visitors. Service was always friendly... More

I like that it is close to work and never super busy. The soup and salads are getting better but the sandwiches always seem a little light on the meat. I don't look around too much, not always recently swept or tables not wiped off.
