As a New Yorker I have high expectations for bagels and this met the bill! The bagel had just the right balance of breadiness and chew. The lox and cream cheese sandwich was a perfect complement for my everything bagel. They served a nice cup of coffee and even have some cute t-shirts for sale. Clearly the place is super... More

Bodo's is amazing! Best bagels I've had outside of NYC (and potentially even better than some New York bagels...) with some really great cream cheeses. I really like jalapeño lime cream cheese, but usually I go with plain cream cheese on a cinnamon raisin bagel. Every time I visit Charlottesville I'm sure to stop by Bodos.

If you are looking for a bagel of any flavor, go to Bodo"s. You can get a bagel sandwich, breakfast or lunch, and great "smear" to spread on it. There is always a line and always a hunt for parking, but it's well worth both of those minor inconveniences. Local rumor has it that the stores are owned by Dave... More

I love the bagels and fresh made cream cheeses, however my family from new england refuses to go there because they won't toast your bagel. I agree that is a bit odd but I still think they have best bagels in the area.

The bagel are awesome. The different cream cheeses (the jalapeño ones are my favorite) on a garlic bagel.

Must stop at one of the locations for a breakfast bagel anytime I'm in town. Absolute top spot in Charlottesville.

Bodo's is legendary and does a great job of serving up interesting bagel combinations. I think the egg salad is the best.

Bodo's is a C'ville institution with three locations (29N, Preston Ave., and the UVA "corner"). Long lines at peak times but it moves fast. The bagels are made continuously and are kettled so have a great texture -- but there is no toasting available, nor are there egg or blueberry bagels. *fabulous* and very garlicky Caeser salad and, rare for...
