The 10 Best Bagel Shops in Virginia!

It is a fact that the New York area has some of the best bagels in the world, but Virginia offers up some stiff competition. Bagel shops across the Commonwealth offer everything from signature bagel sandwiches to the classics. Whatever your palate desires, Virginia’s great bagel shops have it. Here are the 10 best in the state! 

1. Bliss Bakery, Virginia Beach, VA

Bliss has the classic favorites, like plain, sesame seed, and everything, along with a few unique creations, like their French toast bagel. Get it with cream cheese, butter, nova, or salmon spread (cream cheese with salmon chopped up already in it). You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, including their freshly made donuts, cookies, croissants, cakes, cupcakes, and sandwiches. 

2. Mr. J’s Bagels and Deli, Harrisonburg, VA

J’s is a Harrisonburg staple, with three locations scattered throughout the sprawling city. Everything is tasty, but their unique egg bagels keep people coming back. 

3. Bodo’s Bagels, Charlottesville, VA

Bodo’s Bagels in Charlottesville, Virginia, is simply one of the best things about Charlottesville. It has been a Charlottesville “Best-Of” winner since 1996. Their bagels are made from scratch each day, and boiled before baking in the authentic New York style. The bagels are inexpensive, delicious, and always oven-hot. The Bodo’s menu doesn’t have a ton of accruements; their success is in doing what they do better than anyone. 

4. Yorgo’s Bageldashery, Norfolk, VA

Yorgo’s Bageldashery not only has one of the best bagels in Tidewater, but one of the best restaurant names, hands down. Greg Peterman, the owner, has been making bagels professionally since 1988. He took over Yorgo’s in 2006 and has since made it Ghent’s number one bagel spot. Rotating bagel flavors, such as jalapeno, chocolate chip, and pumpkin keep things fresh. 

5. The Bagel Café, Herndon, VA

Northern Virginia Magazine recognized the Bagel Café in Herndon, Virginia, in 2012 as having the “Best Bagels in Northern Virginia.” The first thing you’ll notice about the Herndon bagels is the color-coded strawberry, before noticing the gob smacking cream cheese selection. With just under 20 different flavors, all whipped on site, including spinach Florentine, chocolate chip, vanilla-walnut-raisin, and bacon-jalapeno-cheddar, you’ll never run out of options or new experiences at The Bagel Café.
