Tiny yet trendy eatery in the West End specialising in authentic, Montreal-style bagels made to order with classic and unique fillings.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The latest member of the ever-growing Bross Bagels family, this tiny eatery is the perfect quick breakfast or lunch spot, with a handful of tables and window seats, freshly ground coffee and an array of authentic Montreal-style bagels. Classic cream cheese and lox on a poppy seed bagel is decadent, piling slivers of melt-in-the-mouth smoked salmon over a notably generous schmear of cream cheese, but the goy bagel truly stands out. Combining traditional Jewish latkes with seven or eight rashers of not-so-kosher bacon caramelised in maple syrup and finished with creamy scrambled eggs, melted cheese, and some extra avocado, it’s a towering masterpiece of perfectly balanced sweet and savoury encased a perfectly crisp yet chewy bagel. With a bracing cup of freshly brewed coffee alongside, it is the perfect way to start or pause the day.
