Stopped here for lunch on a cold, snowy day. Decided to have their creamy tomato soup and a salad. Both hit the spot and were very good. They have nice variety at this restaurant and they make everything to order, so you might have to wait a bit, if they are busy. Food is consistently good and filling. And it... More

Finagle is a great lunch place, with tasty sandwiches and chips and drinks. Certainly you're not going to write home about it, but it always provide a good, solid lunch that's not expensive.

The staff aim to please here, always. The bagels are fine, and the options are reasonable; drinks, sandwiches, pastries, etc. The staff seems to stay, and the clientele are repeaters. It gets to be a friendly place to go, and go back to.

I visit this branch of Finagle A Bagel somewhat often. I think that this chain has its numbers right. The pricing is right-on, and the service is quick. I often come in to find a line that stretches half the length of the restaurant. However, that line is quickly taken care of, and it takes no more than 5 minutes... More

While the bagels were passable, most items were overpriced. Go to Kupels in Brookline for better bagels and better prices

Lox and cream cheese bagel was $7.99 and lacked lox. Not worth the price. Bagels were fresh. I would only order bagels with whatever topping you like.

Love these bagels. Nice assortment. Always fresh. Generously topped with spices. Eat in or take out.

They make bagels and serve bad coffee. I'm still looking for that place where both the bagels and coffee are great.

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
