Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact


$0.85 each, $0.75 each for twelve or more. Our bagels are made from scratch "in-house" every day, at each location. Every step, from the mixing of dough to the baking, is done on-premises. We follow a traditional all-natural recipe, with No fats, preservatives, dairy or soy, and we only use unbleached, unbromated flours - for health, and for flavor. We boil our bagels just before baking, per New York style. (If they're not boiled first, they're not authentic "NY style"). Our "100% Whole Wheat" bagels are just that - they're made entirely from healthy 100% whole-grain wheat flour. We bake continuously - morning, noon, and night, so we can serve oven-hot bagels all day long

You *cannot* visit C'ville and not go to Bodo's. Don't be put off by lines; they move really, really fast. And really, waiting in line for Saturday lunch is pretty much a C'ville experience much like Foxfield or Fridays after Five. The bagels are the...More

So impressed with the bagels. They were warm and crispy and pillowy soft on the inside. One suggestion would be to add capers to the menu. A pretty standard addition to a cream cheese and lox bagel sandwich.
