    Beigel Bake: Well Worth The Wait!

    The Beigel Bake in Brick Lane market is, in my opinion, the best beigel shop in the East End. It's very popular, as you can see by the queue which was out of the door and onto the pavement on the Sunday I visited. Don't let that put you off though, the staff deal with the orders quite quickly and you won't have to wait long to be served.

    The beigels are baked on the premises and there are many different varieties of beigels and fillings on offer and everything is written up on the menu behind the counter.

    Favorite Dish: I had a salt beef and cream cheese beigel with mustard and dill pickle. The beigel was really fresh and the salt beef tender, succulent and flavoursome. My beigel cost £4.20, the dill pickle was 20p extra. It was absolutely delicious! Just the thing to keep you going when you are out and about!

    Open:- 24 hours daily.

    Prices:- £1.95 - £5.95.

    At the end of Brick Lane road is a fantastically cheap beigel shop and more its open 24 hours a day 7 days a week except Christmas.

    The beigels are made in the traditional Jewish way boiled until cooked on the surface and then baked in the oven. You can also buy pastries & onion platzels.

    Fillings are so cheap & its more traditional choices such as cream cheese, egg, tuna & salmon. I had a fantastic hot salt beef bagel thick fresh slices of meat packed into the bagel was only GBP2.30

    Beigel mecca :)

    Beigel Bake is supposed to be the oldest and best beigel shop in London and is for sure the most frequented one.

    It's bakery produces 7000 beigels a night!

    And it's open non stop, so you can drop in for a quick beigel any time! :)

    Favorite Dish: Beigel with meat of course. You will get a beigel with a huge piece of meat, so be ready to open your mouth! And be careful with the mustard they's really hot!!!

    The Beigel Bake

    Not a restaurant but somewhere to buy a snack if you are in the area and don't fancy eating at one of the Brick Lane curry houses.

    The East End of London was once a predominantly Jewish area with a thriving clothing industry based around Jewish tailors and seamstresses. The Jewish community moved to other areas of London as Asian people moved in to replace them.
    Blooms, a very well-known Kosher restaurant, disappeared from Aldgate many years ago but there are still some small traces of Jewish life.
    The Beigel Bake is an East End institution. They have great bread and, of course, bagels (or beigels). My favourite has to be the salt beef sandwiches though. I worked in Aldgate for many years and used to walk here in my lunch hour sometimes.
    The bakery is open 24 hours a day so in the early hours you might bump into cab drivers or clubbers on their way home.

    Favorite Dish: Salt beef sandwich. Beware the English mustard though as it is potent. It doesn't really burn your mouth but the fumes feel as if they are melting your sinuses. After experiencing this I can understand why mustard gas was used as a weapon!
