In the heart of Brighton’s cosmopolitan North Laine, a stone’s throw from the central Clock Tower, you’ll find our flagship store and bakery. We first opened here in 1999, and quickly built a loyal following. Two years later, we knocked through into a large warehouse at the rear of the shop in which we set up Sussex’s first and only dedicated bagel bakery.
The shop is open seven days a week, and every bagel is made fresh to order from premium ingredients. We have an extensive menu of filled bagels, breakfast specials, melts, felafel, soups and salads to take-away and there is also a curvy, blonde-wood sit-up bar where weary shoppers can refresh themselves with a bagel and coffee or juice while enjoying the passing parade of funky Brightonians!

Opened in January 2007, our newest incarnation is set in the bustling heart of Brighton’s historic South Lanes. Our bagels still have that fresh-from-the-oven pizzazz because it’s only a few minutes walk from our Bond Street bakery. (We just couldn’t resist the constant calls for another Bagelman on the south side of North St!) We serve the same wholesome made-to-order bagels here, and the same mouthwatering menu, plus a darn fine range of freshly brewed Fairtrade coffees, teas and hot chocolates.
Being the baby of our chain we have, of course, lavished our attentions on the design. There’s a zesty orange and burgundy linoleum floor, two curve-hugging blonde wood sit-up bars and some comfy leather-topped diner stools, perfect for perching, slurping, snacking, yacking and generally partaking in the sophisticated South Lanes vibe.

In the heart of Hove, along the town’s main road from central Brighton, Bagelman has been serving bagels restaurant-style in our daytime diner since the summer of 2004. Alongside our regular menu of freshly-filled bagels, we also serve a tempting range of traditional delicacies including hot salt beef sandwiches, home-made pickles, felafel in pitta, authentic chicken & matzo ball soup and our famous potato & onion latkes, all made on the premises.
We also offer a range of home-baked cakes such as lemon drizzle and apple & cinnamon strudel, alongside a full compliment of freshly-brewed coffees, espressos and speciality teas.

Brighton’s own authentic bagel bakery is situated immediately behind our Bond Street shop, baking fresh throughout the day, seven days a week. From here, our chef and bakers tirelessly create our famous deli-style fillings, homemade salads and soups. The bakery building also houses our head office and purpose-built outside catering kitchen from which a dedicated team produce a steady stream of filled bagels and mouthwatering buffet platters to order.

From our dedicated outside catering kitchen, we produce a full range of filled and wrapped bagels, supplied daily to seven Brighton & Sussex University outlets. We also produce a delicious range of buffet bagel & sandwich platters to order, together with a choice of fruit & savoury finger food, great for meetings events.
