You don't come here for a sit-down, a nice atmosphere, or for the service. Indeed, all of those are lacking. We bought a bagel with lox, and it was really good. Make sure to tell them to go easy on cream-cheese so that you can actually taste the bagel and the fish! Not cheap but not terribly expensive, either.

Our tour guide bought us here for something quick to eat. The service was ok but the bagels were delicious - and cheap. It was just what we needed to stop-off for during our tour.

I have had NY bagels all over the city. I've tried to be happy with other bagels but I just can't. Only the best can be found at Bagel Hole and thus I must make the trek from LES to Brooklyn. Every month when I go into the city, I get my veggie cream cheese from Russ & Daughters but... More

Nowhere like it! The best bagel place in Brooklyn, possibly in the five boroughs. Keep in mind that only the branch on avenue J has limited seating, while the one on Coney Island and K has none. Great food, good prices, quick service. I highly recommend it.

The Bagel Hole really is a hole-in-the-wall type of establishment. SO small. No place to eat in, but worth the visit to pick up a bagel and go. You probably wouldn't want to stay anyways because the service isn't overly friendly. Better on our second visit, but no one spoke too much English on that visit, so had to communicate... More

Located in the jewish neighborhood of Brooklyn, near Prospective Park. The restaurant offers an extensive menu, with bagels starting at 1.5$ The place isn't fancy, but it's definitely the best bagel you'll ever eat ! Cheap, fresh and delicious. Highly recommended!

I've lived in NYC for almost 40 years. I've had Bagel Knosh in my college years, then moved on to H&H and sometimes an Essa Bagel, or Murray's whole wheat. I've even tried the Montreal style at Mile's End. I can tell you with a great deal of authority that the Bagel Hole blows them all out of the water...pun... More

You won't always get a straight answer but ask which flavor is hot and get that. This place does not toast which was new for me but the bagels are so fresh that it isn't needed and you get to enjoy the unique crust of a truly NY bagel.
