Classic Jewish deli menu items that are very fresh and good. A huge bagel and dessert selection, and often VERY crowded on the weekends.

This is a great place for families even on holidays. The food is delicious, especially the matzo ball soup which has the largest matzo ball I have ever seen. The staff is very nice and the place is very "homey".

I was here in July, and they delivered to the Inn that I was staying at. I couldn't resist their "Golden Chicken Broth with Homemade Matzo Ball" on the menu and had some delivered to hotel for a late snack. It was fantastic! The Matzo...More

The Bagel is a longstanding deli-restaurant that tries to be on the order of a New York deli. Our group had a variety of dishes and while most was fine, the sliced turkey seemed to have been of the processed variety rather than freshly sliced....More
