Went again for my favorite breakfast treat. Ordered the Bagel with Lox from Royal. Past few times there were issues with the amount of Lox, the onions being thick cut or non existent and no capers. Well I had none of those problems this time....The bagel was great, plenty of cream cheese, lox, thinly sliced capers, fresh tomato and capers. Good job.More

We got bagels with cream cheese for breakfast, and they were overall quite good. The bagels were clearly made fresh that morning, and had a nice chew to them. One of the bagels - an everything - could have had more sesame seed seasoning. The...portion of cream cheese was maybe a little small, although the flavor of the veggie was very fresh.More

What a disappointment. Sandwiches are more expensive and less full - thin and cheapie- and Service is not cheerful like it used to be. This used to be the Best Sandwich Place around. I don’t know what’s happened to them but it’s a shame.

Though I've lived in the community over 18 years I've never been in this restaurant. I frequent Mi Ranchos next to it at least once a month. In this case I was in a hurry and wanted a bagel and it was on the way....I've always noticed a constant stream of people and wondered if really that many people like bagels. Well, I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in and saw it was way way more than a bagel shop. They had so many different kinds of bakery items it was dizzying. I stuck with the bagel as it was supposed to be NY style (not that I knew what that was). I'm simple... I just got a raisin bagel, toasted with butter, tea and ate in. All reasonably priced. I was not impressed with the bagel. Perhaps I am more used to the non-NY style? It literally had 4 raisins in it! The staff was really nice and I got there just before a crowd so service was fast...but things seemed to move along quickly for others as well. It is a small, old place (could use some updating in the seating area). Most of the steady stream of people took their's to go. They have a huge menu of sandwiches, salads, and such. I will definitely put this place on my rotation to try other things, especially all of the baked goods!More

The bagels are good but this is also a great place to get other baked breads and pastries. They have a great selection and everything is tasty and fresh. You can even order freshly made sandwiches. So you can grab breakfast or lunch when you...stop in to stock up on bagels and sweets for the family.More

My long-time, go-to spot for carry out lunch, highest quality, GIANT Sammie’s. And you won’t be able to resist grabbing a delicious dessert treat, so leave your willpower at home. Only complaints are poor eat in accommodations (though patio on nice day is ok) and...wonky location, parking also screwy. Wish they’d move the entire operation to nice strip mall spot, business would BOOM!More

Great Bagels and breakfast sandwiches. We get take out here often. It does tend to get busy on Saturday and Sunday mornings so plan a few extra minutes to get your order.

My family and I stopped in to check out this spot and I’ll tell you there was lots to choose from. The sandwich’s are probably the best option. I got the spinach knish and it was okay. I probably would t order it again. I...tasked my husband egg, turkey sausage and cheese bagel and it was really good. I did order a donut which was great. Nice deli. I’ll def be going back. Lots of pastries!!!More

I have been coming here since it opened. When Cookie sold the business, I was afraid it would go down hill, but it hasn't. The bread is excellent and her bagels are the best around. I do not donuts or pastries, since they do not...fit into my healthy life style. This is a locally owned business where you can talk directly to the owner and not talk to a faceless CEO somwhere. The staff is friendly snd the service is prompt.More

Been going here for many years and always was impressed. The last few recent visits have been just average. I also notice it is not as crowded as it use to be. Other options now in Germantown that are better. Hope they turn around because...I always enjoyed going there. Will give them another chance next weekend.More

I am from New York and this is the best place to come for a fresh tasting bagel. They make a great sandwich and they are very filling! You can take home a great dessert and there is a HUGE variety to choose from. The...chocolate eclairs are my favorite. However, I haven't ever had a bad dessert from here. The service has always been great and they are very willing to give suggestions to help you! The only complaint I would say is they need to keep up on wiping down tables and keeping the eating area a little cleaner.More

This is a Kelowna Gem. Montreal style bagels and great coffee. I go there every time I’m in the area for their breakfast bagel. Easily a five out of five.

Everyone goes for the bagels, which are outstanding, but leave room for dessert as the pastries, especially the cannolis, are the best!! It is a treat to get anything take-out too as there is something for everyone.

I'm sorry, I have no idea. Perhaps you should contact the Royal Bagel Bakery directly.

They run out of stuff by noon or so. The bagels and doughnuts are made fresh in the morning which is part of the appeal of Royal. If you want all day breakfast go to the Woodside Deli across the street or the IHOP up the... More
