    This place is phenomenal and arguably the best deal in Brick Lane...salt beef beigel is what it's best known for, but the salmon and cream cheese beigels w "all salad" are insanely good

    Simply delicious. The salted beef is so tender and the mustard perfectly balances the salty of the beef with its spice and acidity, all combined with the tenderness and chewiness of the bagel. Luv it

    The bagels here are amazing! And so cheap! Great value. The smoked salmon and cream cheese one is delicious. But the salt beef is the best here! So good, and very plentiful. The mustard is hot!

    Tasty bagels done efficiently. It's a small place so don't be douchy, figure out what you want whilst queuing, take your food and don't crowd around the door. Let others get to the bagel goodness

    Simply put, the best bagels in London. And they're super cheap – you can get a salmon & cream cheese one and a bottle of water for just £2.2. The meat and mustard bagel is also worth trying.

    The salted beef beigel is delicious (don't forget the mustard). Staff's not rude, just busy. Pro tip: Ask them when there's a next round of hot-out-of-the-oven beigels being served. Then get a dozen.

    Open 24/7, this bakery exudes a rough Cockney charm. Main attractions: salt beef and an entertaining customer mix.

    Salt beef beigel for 3.70 is a must in London. You can buy plain beigels for 0.25 each and desserts for about 0.60. This place is one of the best in town, don't miss it. The queue is very fast.

    Salt beef bagel of the gods! When in the area, particularly a night out with friends, I'm sure to pop in. So generous with the beef and you've got to have it with the kicking mustard and a gherkin :)

    This place is absolutely legendary. Salt Beef Beigal will fill you up, but the rest of the beigals are inexpensive, nice, and delish. Always go hot mustard on the salt beef. 24 hours of beigal.

    Quintessential place to go to for all visitors to London. Delicious, simple bagels baked daily. Served with salted beef or smoked salmon. Watch out for the mustard on the beef option 🌶🌶🌶

    There is a lot to be said for coming here at an obscure hour and devouring a salt beef bagel with pickle and mustard, sipping scalding tea and absorbing the neighbourhood. London institution!

    They have good bagels, but not amazing toppings. The smoke salmon is super cheap, and the smoke ham over-salt. A great place for tourists, an outstanding shop for students and under budget folks.

    This place is open 24/7 and offers some delicious bagels. My faves are the tuna and salmon ones, followed by the one with nutella if you have a bit of a sweet tooth

    While I was in London 2 weeks ago I went to this highly recommended salt beef bagel in Brick Lane. I am not sure had I ordered a wrong thing? I have one in Borough Market the bagel much tastier

    If you haven't tried the salt beef bagel, put it on your bucket list! Smoked salmon less than half the price, plain butter is 30p. The angry service is all part of the experience! Generous fillings.

    Salt beef bagel with mayo is a good idea if you're not a mustard fan like me. My mate also recommends the smoked salmon bagel. Great taste and super cheap at £1.40

    Great value bagels and baked things....but just don't drink the English tea. It's been stewing for ages and you will feel like your face will implode from how bitter it is.

    Super crowded on the weekend, tourists will crash this place. But nice and calm during the week, simple, self-made bagels (see the kitchen as you order), super, super cheap.

    24 hours running shop selling chewy bagels and coffee. Only take away. Good for quick breakfast or lunch. I liked cream cheese bagels but my friend liked plane ones. Pretzel was not so good.

    Salt beef bagels. Go there and get one of those. Best thing I have ever eaten on the go. Staff is like "Take your sh*t and get the f*ck out'a here" though.

    Nothing fancy but the food is delicious and of great value. All desserts like the almond slice are under a pound, and the salt beef bagel is extremely satisfying.

    I've read lots of tips about how good is the Hot Salt Beef Bagel, but I didn't like it. Anyway, the tuna & sweet corn one was amazing, and just for £1.30!

    The oldest and best of the bagel shops in London, the Brick Lane Beigel is a social mecca as well as a thriving 24 hour bakery that produces over 7000 bagels a night.

    The salt beef is incredible, and very good value. The staff are a bit rude, but who cares when the beigels are this good 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Finally made it here after two years in London. Huge juicy chunks of salt beef with hot mustard in a fresh bagel/beigel. Can't go wrong!

    Beigel Bake's salt beef bagel with mustard and a gherkin is the only food I crave when I leave London. Don't forget to ask for the gherkin!

    No doubt: salt beef bagel is the best in the whole city. Massively filled and cheaper than other bagel shops around, it won't disappoint you!

    Lovely bagels, open anytime, cheap. One of the most Brick Laner place. Fantastic for local people who just need a quick but reinsuring moment.

    You can't go wrong with the salt beef bagel. Avoid on Sundays as there's an endless queue

    When, not if, you order your salt beef bagel, ask for pickles. If you wait til pickup you'll be fishing in your pockets for 20p.

    Many people ask me for tips on the beigel shop with the yellow vs the white sign. I go to white for salt beef, for simple butter and cheese, and for plain. For prepared things I choose the yellow.

    The great food and unbelievably rude staff make this place a world famous institution for getting food after a night out in London. Oh, and the salmon + cream cheese bagel is AMZING! :>

    Best bagel bakery around, don't be impressed by the queue it moves super quickly. Smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel for 45p: perfect Sunday treat.

    1) get a salt beef beigel. 2) don't call it a bagel, they don't like that. (Soup Nazi rules are in effect here)

    Know your order before you get to the front. Things move quickly. And your order should be salt beef with mustard and a dozen bagels.

    The best beigel place in the area, if you don't get salt beef with loads of mustard you're doing something wrong.

    Wide variety of bagels. Watch out the mustard, might kill the entire thing if not big fun of spicy. Great cheese cake.

    The salt beef beigel is incredible, buy one if you know what's good for you. Warning: if you say yes to mustard, they put a lot on.

    Don't get this place confused with the inferior beigel place two doors down with the yellow sign. Order the SALT BEEF BEIGEL here and don't forget the English mustard on it. *love*
