Not an A, but B+ all the way. Larry King is an investor at this South Beverly Hills casual bagel and basic bites cafe. Good weekend morning starter spot for sure. Bagel aficionados will go a little further to get truly great eats, but most are happy to settle for BWB.

Amazing variety of fresh bagels served as sandwiches or simply as bagels. Great coffee and muffins as well.

Larry King has brought the best bagels, sandwiches, and ice coffee's ever from NY. If you love amazing bagels, this is bagel heaven, and lunch is awesome. Imagine the perfect onion bagel. Firm, semi crisp on the outside, soft perfect texture in. And the ice coffee features ice cubs made from coffee.

Great NY Style Bagel place. For all of us current and ex-NYers who always say its the water, this place proves it. Good place for quick bite to eat

The best thing about this place is that it opens early. It is relatively clean, easy to get in an out. Think slightly pricey faster food. But, for some reason it is not a hit, perhaps because the food is served on plastic, no bottles of catsup or spices, they all come in those silly plastic envelopes that somehow always... More

The bagels here are perfect. My husband is a New Yorker and quite fussy about his bagels and he gives the ones sold here 10 out of 10. Whenever we're in LA, we always come here. Great coffee as well.

Ordinarily I would give them a 4 out of 5. Unfortunately they have cut back on their bagel options and removed several of my favorite bagels.

Brooklyn Water Bagel is one of those very tasty and under rated places. Smack dab in the middle of Beverly Hills this is not quite a deli and not quite a sit down restaurant; sort of in between restaurant and fast food but with excellent bagels, excellent smoked fish worthy of any "Jewish Deli" and great food all around. Not... More

You can take Larry King out of Brooklyn, and apparently he can take great bagels with him to LA. These are as good as any bagels in New York, and far better than most. The nova here is also excellent. Not salty, and just the right hit of smoke. It's an obligatory stop for me when I'm in LA.

Seriously, the best bagels outside of New York City that I've had. Water bagels are the only way to go. Just the right amount of crust and soft, chewy inside. The everything bagels are everything and everything should be. The Nova Cream cheese is exactly what it should be: the salmon is chopped small enough that it is little bites... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
