Chicago Bagel Authority

Love this place! Bagels are steamed to order by the fun, chill staff. Try the chia bagel and don't leave w/o one of the oversized baked goods.


Love this spot - the steamed bagels are great for both breakfast and lunch. One of the few places to find salt bagels!

Steamed sandwiches reign supreme at this Armitage bagel shop. – In Short
The popular way to take your bagel at this Lincoln Park eatery is via sandwich; with dozens of selections available, you won't complain about not finding one to suit your tastes. Sandwiches are steamed to keep bread chewy and ingredients moist. Nods to Chicago 'hoods include the Ravenswood, made with roast beef, cheddar, horseradish, lettuce and tomato, and the Wrigley Fielder, featuring veggie spread, havarti, sprouts, onion, green peppers, tomato and avocado.

steamed to perfection – This neighborhood gem has one of, if not the, best bagel sandwich in the city. The bagels are stuffed with lots of whatever you want and steamed to a soft, melty, goodness. The only problem is the huge amounts of people that tend to pour into the place during peak hours. But since there is no line to wait in, it doesn't seem so bad.
