“Outstanding Bagels!”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

When you walk into Cohen's there are wire baskets filled with different flavors of bagels - usually there are 8-12 flavors from which to choose. Our favorites are: sesame, cinnamon raisin, assiago cheese with flecks of sundried tomatoes, chocolate chip, and multi-grain.

We usually buy a baker's dozen of bagels, which at Cohen's means 14 bagels not the traditional 13! The cream cheese is pricey but very rich and smooth.

We don't often eat our bagels there as the room has very high ceilings and an almost industrial feel to it. The accoustics make it different to hear what your dining partner is saying if the room is full.

There is another Cohen's location in downtown Branford right off the green. It is a smaller location with only a handful of tables, but the accoustics are much better.

As a frugal tip - by 3:00 in the afternoon the bagels are half-priced if you buy a dozen - making them $5 for 14 bagels. Don't count on there being a lot choices!

“Great bagels, staff not very friendly”
Reviewed 2 July 2011

The bagels sandwiches have always been delicious here. I do wish they would not serve bagel chips as a side to a bagel sandwich. It doesn't do anything for the meal, just cheapens it since you know they are leftovers from bagels that did not sell. The little muffins that they sometimes use are so much tastier than the chips. The staff is not taught to be welcoming or friendly to the customers. They are never rude, just indifferent. Such a shame!
