We have been going to this place for several years. We drive 70 miles every couple of months and stock up bagels in our freezer. These are true New York bagels not bread with a hole in it. They are chewy and delicious! They also serve yummy sandwiches made with croissants and the home made cookies are great! If you... More

I have been going here for years, they have the best bagels in the area, and great lunches. It is a local hangout, and the owners do a great deal for the community. If you find yourself in Oak Ridge, you need to stop for lunch or a bagel.

Showed up early army Saturday morning and was let in and helped half an hour before opening. Excellent quality and choice. Pleasant conversation with proprietress. This is one of our favorite treats for breakfast or lunch. Sandwiches are to fire for, never skimpy on the meat. Great value.

This is another place that, when we visit Oak Ridge, is at the top of the list to eat at. Love going here in the morning. The woman that works there is so nice to deal with and a lot of fun to badger (if you're not a Steelers fan). Being from Cleveland, it's easy. Anyway, the food is great... More

My new favorite place in Oak Ridge! You have to try the fresh squeezed orange juice. I had the 'sporty bagel' with flavored cream cheese. Oh my.... What a way to start the day. The owner is so friendly and helpful. Definitely check it out. You'll be hooked.

By far the absolute best bagels around! Handmade there in the shop. The shop is locally owned and an avid supporter of the community! They have sandwiches for lunch, bagels for breakfast, bagel sandwiches, specialty coffee, you will not find a better Bagel joint anywhere in the Knoxville area!

Fresh made bagels daily but so much more. Wood fired pizza and special desserts you cannot find anywhere else. My favorite breakfast is a sourdough bagel with Bandito spread. Support your mom and pops, so much better than the chains.

Stayed two weeks in Oak Ridge and went to the Hot Bagel Co most mornings for fresh, good, Italian style coffee and delicious freshly baked bagels. Simple surrounds, but Tom and the team were super friendly.
