Best bagel places in Singapore
Historically spelled beigel, the ring-shaped bread we know as a bagel has come increasingly popular in recent times. The first mention of this dense, chewy bun dates back to Jewish communities in Poland back in 1610, though there is evidence that bagels may have been made in Germany before this. Unlike regular bread that simply gets popped into the oven after proofing, bagels get a brief boiling with anything from baking soda to honey before they’re baked, giving them their characteristic bite, texture, and appearance. If you’re wondering where to get your hands on some in Singapore, we’ve got you sorted with this list of the best bagel places in Singapore.

1. Two Men Bagel House

One of the first to put hand-rolled bagels on the scene in Singapore is Two Men Bagel House, known for their massive, filled bagelwiches. With three locations at Tanjong Pagar, Holland Village, and Novena, each with their own location-specific speciality ‘wiches, TMBH has definitely made its mark on local foodies’ hearts.
Their classic bagelwiches include the Lox ($17.10), which stars smoked salmon, scallion cream cheese, capers, and more. Fans also love the B.E.C. ($15), an all-day breakfast shindig of scrambled eggs, bacon, double cheddar, and spicy ketchup. You get to choose your bagel from options including Plain, Sesame, Cheddar, Garlic, and even Strawberry! Otherwise, you can take them home as-is, with prices starting from $3.20 for one.
2. Keen’s Bagelry
We visited Keen’s Bagelry in Bugis some time ago to give their Japanese- and NYC-inspired bagelwiches a try. There are just five items on the menu at this three-month-old business, but you also have the option to customise your very own bagelwich.
Their bagels are made fresh each morning in flavours such as Plain, Sesame, Cheddar, and Blueberry, along with house-made schmears including Maple Butter. If you’re undecided, go for the Hashstack ($8.50), a bagel packed with hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, mozzarella, and truffle mayo.
Address: 730 North Bridge Road, Singapore 198698
Opening hours: Tue-Fri 12pm to 8pm, Sat-Sun 12pm to 3pm
Tel: 9298 1393

Another spot for bagelwiches in the Bugis area is Whiskdom, which started out as an online bakery that gained fame for their lava brownies and cookies. Bagels are a brand-new item at their new flagship outlet, but won’t be sold at their upcoming Orchard Central outlet.
There are four bagelwiches on the menu here: H.E.C ($10), K-Bae-Gel ($15.90),Eggsplode ($12.90), and Otah Bum (S$14.90), with bagels coming in Plain, Sesame, and Garlic. However, you won’t get to choose your preferred bagel to go with the bagelwich.

Opening hours: Tue-Sat 11am to 6pm, Sun 11am to 8pm

Another spot with house-made bagels and bagelwiches is Onalu, which you’ll find on the campus of SMU, or Singapore Management University for the uninitiated. They’ve got five bagels to choose from: Plain, Sesame, Charcoal Everything, Cheese, and a Seasonal Special—priced at $3 each.
Customise your own bagelwich, have it plain with sauces or schmears (from $1), or pick from one of their preset ‘wiches. We tried Somethin’ Fishy ($12), stuffed with Norwegian smoked salmon, but you could also go for Kaya Thyme ($9), a locally-inspired version with house-made salted thyme butter and house-made pandan kaya.

Head to Baker’s Bench Bakery in Outram to load up on your bagels for the week at home. They don’t have any bagelwiches, but they’ve done the most tedious bit for you—making the bagels. Their bagels are also sourdough-based, so skip these if you don’t like that distinctive sourdough tang.
Prices start from $3.50 for a Plain Bagel, to $4.50 for a Cheesy Mess Bagel. In between, there’s Cranberry & Walnut Bagel, Cinnamon & Raisin Bagel, and ‘Everything’ Bagel—all priced at $4 each. The ‘Everything’ Bagel is made for the maximalists among us, with garlic, onions, chia seeds, as well as black and white sesame seeds.

Image credit: @sesamebagelssg
Sesame & Bagels started out as a bagelry with a physical store at NEWest, but is now an online shop that you can order your bagel fix from. You’ll have to place your orders seven days in advance, though, and there’s a minimum order of 50 bagels before you can opt for self-collection at a designated location. If you order 100 bagels, they’ll deliver your order to you FOC.
50 bagels are a lot, so they’ve come up with a hitch system on their website where you can split the order with like-minded peeps. Each bag of four frozen bagels is priced at $7.20, in Sesame, Sea Salt & Pepper, and Plain. Add on bagelwiches to your frozen bagel order—they’ve got three of these in Lox ($13), Beef Pastrami ($13), and Classic ($11), stuffed with ham, egg, and cheese.
