We reported yesterday that Brooklyn Water Bagel is open in West Boca with photos of the exterior and interior. We had a lot of positive feedback from readers. Today we went back for lunch.
The short story: We liked it. My wife (and co-founder of West Boca News) is from Long Island. She’s picky about bagels. Brooklyn Water Bagels won her over. Their bagels taste good and have the right texture and hardness on the outside.
She had the cheese omelette along with a plain bagel and butter. Nothing fancy, but plain is the best test of bagel quality.
I had “The Manhattan” sandwich with nova salmon, cream cheese and tomato and red onion, and I had it on an everything bagel. Above you can see a pretty good closeup on the bagel. Here’s a close-up on the sandwich:
I would have liked it with more salmon and a little less cream cheese, but it was still good and for $8.49 it was reasonably priced.
One other interesting feature is the “coffee bar”. If you order a coffee there are several flavors and creams you can add to it. Here’s a shot of the flavors:

Brooklyn Water Bagel is on the southwest corner of Powerline and Palmetto, behind the Olive Garden and next to the kosher market. It is not kosher.
