Bagels are great and they have a big variety including an old bay bagel. Coffee is good and they have flavored as well as regular. Two bagels with cream cheese and two large coffees were $10.68. Local place with many regulars

Of course I go for the bagels, I usually get as take out, though the ambience for sitting in the shop is good. I like the variety that they offer in bagels, but the runaway best is the everything bagel.

the bagels are not great. they are bready, a bit on the sweet side and certainly not reminiscent of a jewish bagel, not a new york bite. the "schmear" is fair. however, if you are having a hankering and happen to be in this burb looking to buy or sell musical equipment and you must have a bagel, this is...

Best fresh bagels in town. Too many different kinds to describe. Typical breakfast sandwiches and some with a different take on breakfast. Individually or by the half dozen they have different toppings for all tastes.

I've been to tons of bagel cafes around Maryland and must say that Sam's is in the top two on my list!! The cream cheese is fantastic and the bagels are ALWAYS fresh, which is so appreciated!

At 6 AM Sam's isn't too busy...best time to get hot bagels! The people are friendly and the selection is great. They aren't NY bagels, but heck, this isn't NYC. It's the only bagels that we enjoy in the area!
