Brick Lane Beigel Bake

Down on Brick Lane off of the Liverpool Street tube station, you find this little gem of a place. Brick Lane Bakery Beigel Bake is open 24 hours, 365 days a year.

If you just walked past this little place without reading about it first, you probably would never stop. It looks pretty run down from the outside and it is located in a ghetto-ish area. The only thing that might spark your interest from the outside is the huge line that is usually formed and running out the front door. That would get my attention and make me think that maybe there was something really good served in there that I want to know about.

Well, there is.

1. Bagels. Bagels and more bagels. They are constantly baking bagels so the ones you get are hot right out of the oven. They are fresh, chewy, and so soft. And the best part is they are super cheap! I bought a whole dozen fresh hot bagels for 3 pounds! They only sell one kind of bagel, plain, but calling it plain is definitely an understatement. There is nothing plain about it. The funny part is they charge you an extra 5p for cutting it open if you want fillings like cream cheese, tuna, or smoked salmon! Made me laugh.

2. Salted Beef Bagel Sandwich. You can choose to get it on a bagel or on bread. This is the reason for the line out the door. They are dishing them out like crazy. They add a little mustard on the bread, cut off some fresh salted beef right there while it is hot, and load it onto the sandwich. I got one for Nate and he thoroughly enjoyed it.

I also tried their onion roll which was pretty good but nothing to rave on about. I think the salted beef sandwiches and their bagels are what they are known for.

Glad Heather and I were brave and ventured out to find this place and try it out for ourselves! Yum!


  1. Cade would be in heaven. He always asks Camron if they can go to the bagel store (Safeway). :)

    1. Safeway.......haha. Funny that he connects that to the bagel store, when their bagels probably aren't even that great compared to a bakery or something. Funny. Wish you could see this place Mind! It was a hole in the wall type of place, but really good!
