Sam's Bagels in Larchmont Village

Have passed by Sam's Bagels on Larchmont many times and wanted to know if their bagels are worth stopping in for. Thanks in advance!

  1. They're not bad. Better than Noah's, not as good as Brooklyn Bagels.

        Yeah I'm pretty much going to have to agree here too

    1. Just had Sam's Bagels today for lunch. The turkey pastrami sandwich on toasted onion and cheese bagel was excellent. The bagel itself was large, very lightly toasted on the outside while still moist on the inside. My husband had the pizza bagel, which had plenty of mozzarella cheese and sauce - perfectly toasted. We got a chocolate chip bagel for desert and it also had that perfectly moist, yet firm feeling to it that a bagel should have. I would definitely recommend this spot if you are in the general area...worth a bit of a trek even...

      1. You better hurry if you want to try Sam's bagels. The greedy new owner of the building is kicking them out.

          Larchmont is getting crazy. So many good places are closing down because of rising property costs and greedy landlords. Pinkberry kicked out a cafe that had been there for years, and now it is empty most of the time, and La Luna is gone. So sad.

        2. Stopped by Sam's over the weekend and was very disappointed with their bagels which I felt were flavorless and very "cakey" and a notch better than Goldstein's which isn't saying much.

          1. if you like whitefish salad, i think it's the best around.
