  • Mish mash soup. Delicious. HUGE. The glass bowl it comes in is a monstrosity. Approximately 2.3x bigger than your head.
  • Sweet and sour cabbage soup is glorious!
  • Many great traditional Jewish food choices like Pastrami on Rye, but also a great veggie chili, and the do serve bacon.
  • Expect to have a brusque comment or two thrown your way. After all, the Bagel hasnt survived all these years (since 1950) by being nice.
  • If you order a bagel sandwich to go, be sure to grab some extra napkins. The sandwiches are delicious but can create a mess if you're eating on the go.
  • Try the chopped liver - The best in the Midwest
  • You're doing yourself a disservice if you fail to order the matzo ball soup.
  • Sunday is fried chicken day
  • Danny Grant, chef of 1826 Restaurant (coming soon), eats here on his nights off. He loves the Salt bagel w/ chive cream cheese.
  • Always a great breakfast!
  • The bagel was stale, eggs & bacon just flat out not good. Came here because the wait for Stella's was long... Next time, ill just wait.
  • Can't believe nobody's recommended the feta and onion omelet. Food of the gods! I'm hopeful that in another 50 years they'll be wheeling me in here for the F&O and Mish Mash Soup!
  • Bagel sandwiches basically come with a 3-egg omelette on them. Get a side of hashbrowns because, why not?
  • The Boystown deli sells its potato pancakes for $2.50 apiece, but we bet you can't eat just one.
  • Breakfast sandwich. Do it.
  • Best bagel in town. Best bagel in Chicagoland? Once Upon a Bagel in Highland Park.
  • Sausage, egg and cheese on an onion bagle is the perfect way to start a saturday. Their b-fast sammys are a staple for me and my friends!
  • If you only order a bagel at The Bagel youre thinking too literallyand missing out on this delis true specialty, Kreplach, which are robust, beef-filled dumplings.
  • Get the pickles very nutritious breakfast
  • Hangover cure. Potato pancakes with sour cream and applesauce. You're welcome.
