Some nice foods and drinks

This place is inside a shopping mall, so good for a rainy day.

Their menu marks vegan clearly and they have plenty of options. However, the quality of their food and drinks is inconsistent.

Their Tuscan bagel was very good, but disappeared from the menu. They have a Thai chili ‘chicken’ bagel that is quite nice. Their Tex Mex, Mega vega and avocado with chives creamcheese were only allright. I also tried the Pulled Paddo bagel, which was quite tasty but too salty.

When it comes to sweets, the pecan pie and banana bread were only allright. However, the pink cake was nice.

The drinks I liked were the Avo dadel heaven, Jungle juice, matcha latte, golden latte, chai latte and matcha latte. Their ‘Alles gemengd’ was only allright.

Vegan options for dessert

I was planning to grap a bagel for lunch when I passed by at 8:15 am. But they weren’t open. In the afternoon when I passed by, I bought a bananabread and pecan pie. They both were very delicious 😋.

Pros: Yummy vegan desserts

Whole wheat bagel with creamcheese

It was the first time that I ordered here. It's a nice location in a shoppingmall and the service was great. I ordered a warm whole wheat bagel with chives (creamcheese) and some lettuce and cucumber. It was delicious and i missed this taste of creamcheese!


Het was de eerste keer dat ik hier besteld heb. Een fijne locatie in het winkelcentrum in Utrecht en de service was ook goed. Ik bestelde een warme volkoren bagel met bieslook roomkaas en wat sla en komkommer. Het smaakte exact zoals de echte van de V&D. Ik miste deze smaak zo erg dus ik ben blij dat ik dit gevonden heb.

Nice bagel burger

I like the atmosphere in the restaurant and the bagel was a good lunch.
Wouldn't come here for dinner though.

Netherending Story

A hugely popular yet sensible fast food hot spot. Wouldn’t usually do a shopping centre for food but this branch of Bagels & Beans was perfectly located half way between hotel check out and a train ride to the airport so some compromise was required. Already familiar with the B&B concept we dived straight in to the usual matcha soya lattes and a couple of freshly prepared bagels. On this occasion it was a Meatless Magic and a vegan cream cheese. The meatless magic consisted of a vegan burger surround by lashings of finely chopped red onion, vegan mayo, tomato and gherkins. The cream cheese bagel was quite basic in appearance but hugely tasty. Generally, you’ll always leave Bagels & Beans a satisfied customer.

Pros: vegan options clearly marked, Decent prices

Cons: A very busy branch
