“Delicious Fresh Bagels”
Review of New York Bagels

We found New York Bagels online and decided to stop and pick up a quick bite for lunch.

It has an unassuming entrance on the trendy Harrington Street. However, once inside the interiors are beautifully decorated and a little more high-end than most cafes in Cape Town.

The menu offers a broad range of bagel options – breakfast, meat, fish and vegetarian. There are also some interesting options like the Dutch inspired herring and pickle bagel, the German schnitzel and salads bagel and the Bagel Hot Dog. There are also various cakes served along with coffee and other cold drinks.

We opted for the START – Smoked Trout, Avo, Roast Tomato and the Hot Beef on Rye: Brisket, Pickles, Coleslaw, Mustard. The bagels were absolutely delicious and were devoured in minutes! All the ingredients were incredibly fresh and good quality, especially the smoked trout. Overall the flavours were bold but well balanced and the coffee was great too

The bagels are quite filling and for R58 for bagel with trout, the prices are very reasonable for the quality you’re getting. The service is friendly and quick which makes it a great place to sit down or collect.

Overall a great experience and I will definitely be back to try the cheesecake everyone is raving about!

A real bagel experience with many options all seem popular by the many people here. I can really recommend this place for a quick stop for great food. Coffee is also well made and the cakes look delicious although I never tried them due to a time constraint.

It would be difficult to call this a restaurant, more like a coffee shop or take away just just happens to have some seating. However that all is irrelevant once you've sunk your teeth into one of their bagels.
I have been there on more than half a dozen times and the quality is always high.
The bagels with a filling are tasty and filling, made fresh to order and you can taste it.
The bagel dogs are great and the sausage is pure beef too!
With friendly staff working there the place is a gem.

I haven't been to a real bagel place outside of North America and was really suspicious coming here in Cape Town. But man, this place is crazy good! Went here for breakfast and coffee every day during my stay in the city and would have been a regular for sure if I lived in Cape Town. Just go, you won't be disappointed.
