Description: 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.

You only have to look at the customer testimonials drawn, scribbled and scribed on cards in the window of Bagelman in Bond Street to see how popular this place is. And its popularity is well deserved. Wonderful fresh bagels - plain, poppyseed, sesame, cinnamon and raisin, onion and jalapeño all baked downstairs every day.
You can buy a bag of 6 (for £2.49) to take home and toast or work your way through the takeaway choices for filled bagels. Our favourite is 'Mighty Aphrodite' with feta, tomato, olives and basil or the lox deluxe. Lots of imaginative vegetarian choices - 'veggie feast' is good, with cheddar, hummus, avocado and salad and you could construct your own vegan filled bagel from the 'extras' available. Hot breakfast bagels, with bacon, veggie sausage or hash browns (around £2.35) are a great start to the day or good to take on train trips. They have 'specials' regularly too.
They have good home-made soup - a decent takeaway pot for £1.79. Last one we had was roasted tomato and red pepper. Yum.
Cold drinks and all that in the fridge.
You can sit in (which costs a bit more to cover the VAT - 45 p or something) on bar stools at the window and watch the world walk by. You can have a toasted bagel and a 'shmear' for about £1.29, which is great if you're travelling with a child who needs fuel.
Every member of staff that we've ever dealt with has been cheery and helpful. They're very patient with dithering customers who can't decide between a Reuben or a Funky Tuna!
The Hove branch has chicken and matzo ball soup, hot salt beef sandwiches and potato and onion latkes. Lots of room to sit down too. And plenty of cakes.
They've been in business over 12 years and keep winning awards. Not surprising.
