One of best bagel in the greater Lansing area. Major problem is parking to buy them. They need to have access thru their back door. Now if you park (only place) behind the building you have to walk around the block to enter and then again around the block to get to your car.

Stopped here specifically to try the bagels while visiting MSU. I like bagels un-toasted without any spreads. I tried a asiago cheese and it was pretty good. Not too heavy or dense. The staff were all friendly, and service was fast.

Stopped in here when I needed a quick bite for breakfast with fewer than 30 minutes to spare. I love that it is located a short walk from many campus buildings that line Grand River. Got in line, made my order, paid and I was eating in only a few minutes. Even though $5.00 seems expensive for a breakfast bagel... More

I have been to many Bruggers locations and the East Lansing location is by far the best. The service is FANTASTIC, and the bagels are always extremely warm, and have a great cream cheese to bagel ratio. I would highly recommend to anybody who has never been before!

While I can't say that it's convenient to park to get to Bruegger's, it's always worth the effort. The bagels are fresh and authentic. None of the other local places that offer bagels are "real" bagels like these are. The variety is great. Sandwiches are wonderful. And the people who work there are always polite and helpful.

As a former New Yorker, I am very fussy about bagels. Bruegger's are mediocre, and they now seem to emphasize other items, like plain bread sandwiches which are also mediocre. Many other bagel chains are better.

This is a great place to go for breakfast. The bagels and breakfast sandwiches are very good along with the coffee.

....because you can't get the bagel sandwiches you loved years ago--they emphasize their deli-style bread sandwiches. After they changed their menu the helpful counter staff would make the "old" bagel sandwich "off menu", but eventually they stopped doing that. Their food is tasty, and yes, a bit pricy for college-town expectations, but I miss the bagel days.

We work across the street and get bagels every week. Try the green olive cream cheese! I just recently went for lunch and they have a great soup and sandwich special. Deli sandwich on a bagel, all fresh and made to order. The bagels are in line with other chains for the morning and the lunch is actually cheaper than... More
