Breuggers water boiled bagels (how real NYC bagels are made) are the best you can get outside of NYC – perfectly doughy yet not heavy and Breuggers also has some of the best flavored cream cheeses (jalapeno, honey walnut and salmon are my favs … the jalapeno is a little hot but it has a true jalapeno flavor which no...

We stayed at a nearby hotel and walked over for breakfast. Staff is super friendly, bagels warm and delicious. We even bought a dozen bagels for our car ride home! Next time we visit Milwaukee we will definitely return to Bruegger's.

I would like to mention that they have variety of cream cheese and bagels. I also ordered Classic wrap including two eggs,turkey and cheese,which was not at all good. As this is a breakfast joint they... More

Since we didn't want to pay hotel prices, we walked about a block and located Brueggers Bagel Bakery. The Bagels are fresh and the breakfast sandwiches were good. It made for an inexpensive breakfast option

The perfect place to warm up on a cold day. Grilled cheese, chili and a hot cup of coffee. Cinnamon toast coffee, decaf. Great lunch spot.
