Life's a bagel is exactly what it sounds like - a bagel place. You can get a number of different types of bagels with cream cheeses of varying types or smoked salmon. No place to eat in. Under kosher supervision.

Tiny little bagel shop. Several varieties of bagels, and cream cheeses. We usually get the everything bagel, that has a light and airy, but perfectly chewy interior. They'll toast if you'd like, or pack you a bag to bring with you too work. These are the best bagels in the entire area! Get there as early as possible to avoid... More

They have the biggest bagels I've ever seen. Also, they are always so fresh and soft. Hands down the most delicious bagel around.

I mean it. Best bagels ever!! The line is always out the door but it is SO worth it! The line moves fast too! Fresh and enormous amazing bagels! My favorite are the egg and everything bagels. And the home made cream cheese is fantastic too. If you haven't had life's a bagel you are missing out!!!

Don't be put off by the strip mall location of this bagel shop. Although not much to look at from the outside or inside, it doesn't matter. These are the best bagels around. Lots of variety (love the salt and egg) with several types of cream cheese to choose from. I think they are best untoasted.

This bagel place is amazing. They have plenty of variety and all bagels are super fresh. You don't even have to toast them. :) It really is as good as or better than a New York City bagel place. I highly recommend getting bagels from there. You will savor every bit of it, trust me!

Thank Patricia A
