This little bakery is one of the best parts about living in Stoke Newington. It is open 24/7, and it's become an excellent substitute for a dirty kebab on my way home from a night out. The pro is, their bagels are also delicious when I'm sober! :)
Everything is very reasonably priced (I normally get the smoked salmon for £2.10!) and tastes absolutely fresh. Staff have always been really friendly despite the fact that they were working into the wee hours in the morning.
I tried their croissants and pain au chocolat as well, which, although not bad, weren't really anything special, so that's why I've given 4 stars instead of 5.
The Bagel House does the best salt beef bagels I have ever had. Piled high with deliciously juicy meat and then covered with mustard and all for £2.85. Much cheaper and tastier than the Brick Lane bagel shops & cafes.
The best thing is it is open 24 hours so it has become my new late night feast on the way home from a night out.
They also do lots of fresh bread, cakes and other bagel fillings.
The bagels are just as good as the ones that you find in the more well known bagel shops in Brick Lane, but it's that the fact that everything is pre packed is the obvious place where we are losing stars here.
Maybe you can do the fun create-your-own bagel stuff in the day, but that's not the point, I only ever come late at night, so it doesn't matter. My tuna mayo (no cucumber, no sweetcorn - they didn't have any of that fancy stuff) bagel wad good, so no big deal.
Nice cakes too....and pizza slices....and samosas....and lots of other bready goodness food stuffs.
The Bagel House is a great little bakery and take out place if you live in the area or are passing through. Whether chirpily skipping to work in the morning or flat out drunk at the end of a long night there is something for everybody here.
From the bakery point of view they sell plain bagels as well as rye and white loaves. I have never had stale baked goods from here, but it's really good when you happen upon fresh batches of bagels coming out of the oven.
Pasties and a variety of savoury filled bagels are great to take away. Prices are keen and even when you splash out on smoked salmon and cream cheese it is not much of a dent in your pocket. Hot salt beef is good too.
To finish off with there are patissier style cakes and fruit tarts plus coffee and tea.
Appreciated by a wide strata of society for both the grub and the late opening hours. This place is only ever seems to be closed on Jewish holidays.
Popular with the police from the legendary Stoke Newington Police Station across the road. The only complaint I have is that these coppers act to type, having an insatiable appetite for the Bagel House dougnuts, and usually all doughnuts are gone by early evening.
Maybe the police should be restricted to only buying the jam doughnuts. That would leave the ring doughnuts, still very tasty, to the civilians as the police like to refer to us nowadays.
Only a suggestion officer, there is no need to taser me.
The Bagel house is a nice place to go if you want to enjoy a good time with your friend. Food is delicious, staff quite helpful, and the atmosphere totally perfect and agreable!!
It's super cheap and open ALL THE TIME however the staff have never been too polite or welcoming and I really feel it would nice if there was the option to have your bagel toasted. Just putting it out there.
You know when you've overdone it when stumbling home in the early hours of the morning, you get within 100 yards of your front door and you declare you just can't take another step and stumble into The Bagel House on the corner and order up their 'finest smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel, please!'. Those few bites, for that's all you can manage are essential for you to be able to complete your journey through the door, up the stairs and into the bedroom, flop onto the bed. Trouble is these few bites are all I can ever manage of these bagels it doesn't matter what state I'm in, they're tough little buggers. But then the Bagel House ain't no classy joint and Stokey isn't renowned for being the Mecca of Bagel lovers, not this end of Stoke Newington High Street at any rate. And so what if the staff are sulky? They've been up half the night and you seem to be talking to something just over their right shoulder rather than them with that silly grin plastered across your face.
