If you’re looking for a good, affordable bagel and some amazing fresh squeezed orange juice, go no further than Georgetown Bagelry in Bethesda.
Ms. Classy and I have come here a few times and liked it so much, we brought her parents here for breakfast when they came to visit over the holidays. We entered this tiny eatery and luckily there wasn’t much of a crowd like our first visit. We quickly shuffled up to the counter, selected our bagels (garlic and salt for me, whole wheat ‘everything’ for her), and our desired bagel filler. We were in a breakfast mood, so we steered away lunch/dinner selections and opted for the egg and cheese to fill in the space between the bagel halves.
Whole Wheat 'Everything' Bagel with Egg and Cheese
The garlic and salt bagel really packs a wallop and should only be ordered by people who REALLY love garlic and salt (which I do!). If you like a hint of garlic rather than a garlic punch in the mouth, try the ‘everything’ bagel where the blend of garlic, poppy, onion, and salt mix and no specific flavor rises above another. At only $3.20 each, these fit well below my ‘cheap eat’ standard. Seriously, anyone would be hard pressed to find a better breakfast for the same price. Unfortunately, they were out of fresh orange juice when we arrived. The orange juice is a tad pricey, but so good. We browsed the cooler for other drink selections and split a can of Dr. Brown's diet black cherry soda. Ms. Classy’s father had a coffee and quickly proclaimed it was the best coffee he’s had in the entirety of his visit (we had coffee from a few establishments before hand, including Starbucks and Seattle’s Best).
Will we go back? Most certainly. We feel we’ve had our fill of breakfast and next time we want to try something more “lunchy” like the Miami burger and pizza bagel. I can’t wait to try them. If you’re in the mood for a quick, cheap, filling breakfast and are in the Georgetown area, just hop on the Metro to Bethesda and go to Georgetown Bagelry.
