Not many bagel places in Holland. But Big Apple has a large variety with a lot of toppings to choose from. Looks like maybe a little short handed but they get the job done. I would recommend Big Apple Bagels

By far the best Bagels I have ever had. I'm not a bagel lover, but this whole wheat bagel with egg, bacon and cheese was delicious. The kids had bagels and apply cinnamon cream cheese with Apple chunks. Again very good. The restaurant was clean and had plenty of seating. We entered with a good sized line, it moved fast.... More

There are all kind of bagel places but Big Apple is the best around! There bagels are always better than their competitors. I used to try different places but no longer bother. Their Apple Pie Bagel is so good. They also throw in some seasonal bagels that are also so good.

My daughter always orders her Bagel not toasted and they always end up toasting it (guess out of habit). If that's not bad enough, when we watch them toast it and confront them about it they deny it was toasted. We show them it is warm and then slid the cream cheese over to prove the point and they still... More

This place has so much potential to be a good business but the employees move at a snails pace. It makes me want to go behind the counter and make my own. It would be so much quicker. 7 people in line with one register open at 8:30 am.

Cozy little coffee shop with baked goods, muffins and bagel sandwiches. Great staff, friendly, quick and efficient service. Booths and tables on both sides of the shop along with a counter with bar stools against the window to look out and there is a nice, cozy fireplace with 4 big, comfy chairs. Decent music playing that wasn't too loud! I... More

At their Waverly location. We love their bagels (all kinds to choose from) and get them just like I ordered them... slightly burnt so they are a bit crunchy and cut in 4 pieces too... Good muffins also! Pass on their coffee... Oh My, YucK! Roomy and comfortable enough to relax, hangout and use the internet. During their last hour... More

Needed a quick selection of bagels for guests who arrived in town unexpectedly - this was the perfect solution. Lots to choose from, and fresh!
