I agree with the last poster. A&S closed in Bensalem (Bensalem blvd) and since I live in tacony I would try south street. NOT VERY GOOD, is bland.

Bagels are average (bland), coffee is mediocre, service is lousy (unorganized, and they act like they are doing you a favor). The worst thing is the owner. He damaged my car (we park next to each other), and after agreeing to pay for damage, never would. He is a bad neighbor and community member. Please boycott this restaurant.

I was a little biased when I ate here because I had just come from NYC. If you aren't able to venture to our neighbor to the north any time soon, South Street Bagels is a good substitute for the real thing-crispy fresh bagels from NYC. The whitefish salad was very good (again, not great).

Simply the most delicious bagels I've had in a very long time. Grew up in NJ in a very predominantly Jewish neighborhood where there were at least 4 bagel shops to choose from, all great & real bagels. Moved to Philly and could NOT find a decent bagel shop, until today. I haven't had a NY/NJ style bagel in, like, ages. I truly hate the bread bagels that are sold at the 2 so-called bagel shops in the 'burbs where I live. I will travel the 20 minutes again to get more of these awesomely delicious bagels.

Pros: Reminds me of NJ/NY (home), simply the best.

Cons: No place to sit. There's no multiple locations.

You cannot eat in, but go here to take bagels home. They make them onsite and they are really good and dense. The is a wide variety to choose from and many types of cream cheese too.

If you live near South St., this is the place to grab a take out breakfast. There is usually a line, but it is well worth it. The bagels are comparable to New York, and the flavor choices are plentiful.

When I first moved to Philly 6 years ago, the South Street Bagel (recognizable by it's large bagel-shaped sign on the outside) was literally right next door. So in the mornings before work, I would walk out of my door and bare myself to the option of 20 different types of bagels, an array of homemade cream cheeses, and other condiment-related variations. My usual was either their blueberry bagel with strawberry cream cheese or a sausage, egg & cheese on an 'everything'; special occasions merited their French toast bagel (!) that came with maple syrup to dip it in. If one happens to be there for lunch, the menu presents plenty of options that cater to the more savory tastes (lox, hummus, etc.).

At times, the counter staff appears tuckered and strictly business, though it's understandable for the early hours that they have to be there and the amount of people that they have to deal with. This also implies that there can be long lines to wait in, especially in morning. If you can stand the crowds and the chatter of the beauty school girls that often clot this tiny store, patience pays off in an incredibly delicious way.

Price-Wise: buying multiple bagels with spreads and the such can amount to a higher price than anticipated, so sometimes purchasing in bulk is the way to go. either way, it makes one look forward to morning for a change.

Pros: Great food!

.

The bagels here are great. lots of variety, love the veggie, excited to try the onion. Large variety of cream cheeses too. No seating area - order your bagels and coffees at the counter and take to go. Coffee, not so good. Stinks to have to go to two different spots for your coffee and your bagels, but this is the only good place I've seen to get a really good bagel, esp since i'm used to H and H. :)

Pros: Great bagels, like NYC's H and H, quick sesrvice

Cons: Bad coffee, have to go to two different places to pick up breakfast

Huge selection of bagels and cream cheeses. We love their flavors, and interesting assortment.
Coffee could be better, but their main product the bagels/cream cheeses are fantastic.

The freshest bagels in the city. Try one of these and you may never be satisfied by a supermarket bagel again. South street bagels are made fresh every morning and walking into this steamy little shop, where you can see rigth into the kitchen, will have your mouth watering in no time flat. Popular flavors, like french toast, and bagel sandwiches are always available. But if you want specialty grains like Bialy be prepared to get up very early. They can sell out of some flavors by 7am!
