Izzy's probably makes the best bagels "east of Montreal" as they say. Lots of different options and always freshly baked. Have one with a coffee or tea. The have a few others options too, like soup.

There are many varieties of bagels. I liked the spinach and vegetable schmear . Staff are nice and friendly but the place is too small for larger group.

Lots of smear, great bagel choices. I had maple bagel with egg nog smear on one side and zesty cheese on the other. Better than my beloved Einstein bagels from home.

Great bagels and home made cream . But go early in the day as always fresh so limited selection later in the day

The best bagels in Halifax by far. I go here regularly and absolutely love it. You have so many different options when it comes to the bagels and the cream cheese spread. I've tried almost all of them and many different combinations and have loved them all. Everything is so fresh and tasty! The people working there are very friendly.... More

My three brothers and I were up in Nova Scotia and we were feeling bagel deprived and needed to start our last day there with a decent bagel. We checked out Trip Advisor and even though we were about twenty minutes from Izzy's, we decided to see if Izzy's lived up to the great reviews in Trip Advisor. It definitely... More

Ate here twice while in Halifax/Bedford. Had the egg cream cheese and a coffee. Both were simple yet tasty. The ingredients were fresh and the vegetable cream cheese I had was delicious. Good place to stop for something quick and fulfilling.

There's nothing terribly fancy about this place, but the bagel hit the spot en route from Bedford to Halifax during a recent visit. We were lucky with the weather to dine outside, but there's nothing to look at except the hiway.
