For both residents and tourists, Williamsburg offers several Bagel locations that you may want to try out.
There are so many of them available and because of limited time or hunger, you may be debating which one to consider and which to leave out in your adventure. Do not worry about that as I have done all the digging and research for you.
The following list consists of my top recommendations for the best Bagel spots that you need to visit any time you crave a bagel and are on the streets of Williamsburg.
1. Williamsburg Bagel
343 Roebling St, Brooklyn, NY 11211.
Phone: (718) 384-0904.
Williamsburg Bagel is one of the best bagel shops. It is located on St Roebling and opens every day from 7 am but is closed during weekends. It offers great delicious and handmade bagels of different flavors at very low prices.
Williamsburg Bagel is the best breakfast spot with tasty bagels, great coffee, and a variety of many other foods and bites on the menu including bread, tasty pancakes, cream cheese, eggs, and omelet.
They also offer an extensive variety of spreads, toppings, and bread-making bagels outstanding from other bagel spots. I had been to other bagel shops where people stayed in the queue for over 10 minutes to be served.
I agree that things in Williamsburg Bagels are different as there is no lining up and their bagels taste fresh.
I would recommend that you call ahead of time before showing up if you would like to take a couple of them as takeouts for your family or friends.
However, because it is a small place, it does not offer reservation services. So if you are craving a bagel, show up, make your order, eat, pay, and leave. Their payment methods also include credit cards.
566 Lorimer St, Brooklyn, NY 11211.
Contact: (347) 294-0046.
Are you craving a bagel and do not know where to grab one because you are afraid that the bagel shops you know are closed? Worry not as the Bagelsmith is among the 24-hour service shops.
It does not matter the time of the day or night that you crave those tasty bagels, this shop is always open.
I was there on a weekday in the morning and it was packed with everyone trying to grab a bagel and coffee before running to work. The shop is also packed during weekends.
They provide a wide range of services, including takeaway and delivery. This makes it simple for you to enjoy their delicious bagels because you can place your orders online and have them delivered right to your door. Their bagels are tasty with different spreads.
Besides bagels, the Bagelsmith also offers a variety of foods and bites on their menu including gluten-free and vegan options for vegetarians. They include potatoes, omelet, sandwich, sausage, bacon, and cheese.
It also serves fantastic ice coffee, which you can pair with bagels for brunch. What makes this shop a catch is that it also offers gluten-free bagels, something that not all bagel shops can offer.
Their services are swift, not to talk about their reasonable prices. They do not offer reservations but they do delivery services. You can pay with cash or a credit card.
3. The Bread Brothers Bagel Cafe

5. Blackseed bagels
214 Berry St, Brooklyn, NY 11249.
Contact: (646) 876-2257
I learned that once you get used to bagels for breakfast, it becomes a point of no return. Blackseed bagels is also an amazing bagel spot in Williamsburg that you wouldn’t want to miss. It offers tasty hand-rolled bagels with a couple of flavors and toppings.
They also offer a wide range of juices and great-tasting coffee that you can take with bagels for brunch. There are also vegan options and gluten-free bagels available on the menu.
Their bagels taste great and are light; their baking and cooking style is unquestionable because for all the times I ordered the bagels, they were just as great as I wanted.
It is an outstanding bagel shop among many as it has an app that you can download on AppStore for your apple phone. The app enables you to place online orders and delivery services.
Use the app to order from Black Seed’s trademark menu of bagels, spreads, classic and creative bagel sandwiches, fresh coffee, juice, and beverages, and have them delivered to your doorstep from the comfort of your own home.
Because the place does not offer reservation services, if you want to enjoy bagels with friends or family as you bond, I would recommend that you make your orders upfront or go for takeouts and take the bagels to your house.
If not, just walk in with your friends, make your order, eat, pay, and leave. All their food and bites are delicious although prices are relatively high.
6. SHM Bagel & Coffee Shop
895 Grand St, Brooklyn, NY 11211-2746.
Contact: (929) 337-6299.
Another place to get bagels in Williamsburg is SHM Bagel and Coffee Shop. Bagels, burgers, and other food items such as salads are available. Apart from bagels, the SHM serves excellent tea and coffee to accompany the bagels and burgers.
The spot also offers delivery services to your doorstep which are quick. Their food is amazing and the staff is considerate about food-sensitive people hence substituting whatever is on the menu with what the customer wants.
They offer a little eating area where you may sit and eat your meal. If you don’t want to wait, they’ll wrap a takeaway order for you. It is also a convenient location for people who do not carry cash and prefer to pay their bills using credit cards.
7. Marcy & Myrtle Cafe
101 N 10th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249.
Contact: (917) 662-0727.
Marcy & Myrtle is a wonderful spot to acquire bagels as well. It also provides fresh coffee, delicious pastries, and great service for everyone. It opens from 7 am to 4 pm on weekdays, is closed on Saturday, and opens on Sunday from 8 am to 4 pm.
The place is quite simple but they say do not judge a book by its cover. Get inside and you will find amazing bites for you and your friends or family.
I figured that Marcy and Myrtle is a good breakfast spot as it is always packed in the mornings. Their coffee is excellent and even more delicious when taken with bagels, sandwiches, donuts, or scones.
There are also various vegan bagel options on their menu. It offers delivery services where in the comfort of your home or office, you can order the bagels and get them delivered right to your location.
