I lived in Charlottesville for 8 years in the 80’s-90’s. Bodo’s is THE best bagel shop I’ve been to in the world. Unbelievable how efficient they are. This morning, the line was way out the door. Let’s say 40 people in line total including 20...More

Our family of four just finished a satisfying lunch at Bodo’s Bagels. Excellent bagels and toppings - will gladly return. Recommended for a quick casual lunch. Clearly a local favorite given the steady stream of customers.

This is quite possibly, the best bagel I've ever had. Everything bagel, ham and Swiss, with avocado and tomato. Great service as well. Don't let the long lunch line detour you, they move through it fairly quickly.

Bagels and chicken salad sandwich is the best. Always busy here but food is prepared very quickly. Good choice to eat in or take out. Several locations in Charlottesville to choose from.

Whether you want breakfast or lunch, Bodo’s is the place to go. We recommend avocado with bacon & feta spread. Also try the vinegar style potato salad! Delicious. Don’t worry, the line moves quickly.

Bodo's is a Cville institution. There are 3 locations around town. Don't be dissuaded by the long lines on the weekends, they move quickly. It's cheap and good with selections ranging from lox and nova to BLT and everything in between. Kids love it.

When you need a bunch of breakfast food, this is the place. Great selection of cream cheeses. Bagels are excellent from plain to everything. You can tell this place is well run.
