My husband and I have been buying bagels here for many years and find that the Bagel Bakery is the only place in the Albuquerque area that makes "almost" authentic NY style bagels. Most places just bake the bagel eliminating the most important step of boiling. However, these bagels are smaller and don't quite have the same chewiness and lack... More

we go here monthly to grab bagels. Everyone is always friendly and they have a great variety of smears and bagels. They only take cash so make sure you stop by a ATM. If you want great local bagels this is the place

Classic NY style bagel joint. Bring cash only, if not you'll be looking for ATM. Dozens of choices of bagels and sides. Fast break place or dine in. Fresh to order offers an opportunity to enjoy the sweet risen selection.

It's not New York, but these bagels are the closest we've had to NY style in NM. Lox and cream cheese was generously spread, and far less expensive than the Big Apple. Very pleasant service. We'll be back.

Almost the real thing. Our batch (13) were all undercooked. None had that pale toast color to them. They are also considerably smaller than NYC bagels. The real thing does not look like a big ring. They taste pretty good, clearly boiled then baked. (Just not enough)

By most standards, these bagels are right on: aromatic, fresh with chewy outer crust and soft pliable inner dough. The thing with this place though is that if there are more than two parties ahead of you, you are going to wait....a good amount of time. So, don't make the mistake we made thinking that with just a few minutes... More

My husband is from the East Coast and we also lived there together for 8 years. We've moved around a lot and always have difficulty finding a "real" bagel. Most of the big chains and grocery stores merely call a baked piece of dough shaped like a bagel, a "bagel." Well they're not unless they are boiled and then baked... More

If you like New York delis you will love The Bagel Deli Bakery. In the morning they have a wide variety of Bagels with every type of Cream Cheese imaginable (even lox). The price is great and the food is fantastic. As someone else said, bring cash as they do not accept credit cards.
