I paid £8 for a salt beef bagel and a cup of coffee that was half the size of one you'd get elsewhere (but still the same price, £2.50+). I didn't get any sugar with it, or a spoon. I asked the server if I could have some, she told me I could get some myself from the counter. No... More

I have fallen in love with the Bagels from Bagelman, I can not believe how much nicer they are than the usual supermarket bought ones, I have only bought them to make my own, but the choices of different Bagel flavours and fillings in the shop I would not hesitate to buy a pre filled Bagel. You can't beat a... More

The food was ok but I noticed that the staff member serving me didnt wash there hands between taking the money and making the bagel! Which I found very hard to not comment at the time

It is what it is, a bagel bar, so, you basically order the bagle you like with the filling you choose, they also have their own specials which are pretty good.

I came here after the half marathon for a quick bite to eat and as soon as I came in I smelt the lovely bagels, I took mine to take away but when I opened it there was black bits in the avacado, I'm not sure if this is normal or not but I ended up not eating it. I... More

I popped in as passing for work today, I haven't been to bagelman for years. I opted for the breakfast deal and got a bacon filled chilli bagel accompanied by a double espresso of small batch coffee. Presently surprised as the coffee was superb (strong and great flavour with a reasonable crema) the chilli bagel was sublime. A great level... More

We were looking forward to our visit, but the menu has changed and what I wanted was not on the menu anymore and there was no salt beef. Sorry, but we went elsewhere and probably won't return. So disappointed.

I went again last weekend and the bagels are amazing as usual. There's not much more I can say - I've been getting these bagels for years and they're still as good now as they've always been. I recommend buying a pack of bagels to take home to freeze and you can have fresh bagels for as long as your... More

Bagelman started in 1996 when Julian, our founder, started a one-man bagel delivery service to help fund his way through a degree at Brighton University. In response to popular demand, the first Bagelman store opened in 1999 at 7 Bond Street and since then we have gone from strength to strength; we now have a bakery serving four stores!

Inspired by the lively Jewish delicatessens of New York and London’s East End, we combine the sensory richness and liveliness of the full delicatessen experience with the irresistible lure of a real bagel bakery.
