Bagel City, Pike Center in Rockville - Serving Good Bagels for 35 Years

8 posts in this topic

What about Bagel City in Rockville? 1. Their bagels are not the size of frisbees and not doughy (think Einstein or Chesapeake). 2. The crust is crispy with a great bite. 3. The inside has a great chew, not too soft, not too hard. Downside: servers/cashiers are rude, but worth the aggravation. PS, the bialys are great too (but extremely oniony-I dump out the onions when I get home).

I live close to both Goldbergs and Bagel City and I prefer the latter. I agree with your assessment on the crust/chew factor. Tasty, good size. Goldbergs are a little too bloated though I do like the taste. Funny enough, I actually find the service to be quick and very friendly at Bagel City when I go on a Saturday or Sunday morning - while I feel like I've gotten a colder shoulder at Goldbergs. But I'm not too fussed, they're just fetching 6 bagels out of bins for me. Oh and the 'Saturday' part of Bagel City is a plus for this gentile.

FYI, their website says they've been open "for 35 years" which would make them one of the oldest restaurants in the DC area. I don't remember them ever not being there - does anyone know the year they opened so I can accurately put them in this thread?

A Rockville institution.

Sigh, but not for long. I just got a text message (from a trusted source) that says, "Bagel City will be closing as shopping center is going away. :("

Damn...I was hoping that the Walmart deal was going to fall through....do we really need that right across from Target?
