Bodo’s Bagels

Heavenly fresh bread

Bodo’s is a staple of Charlottesville and one I quite love. Nearly every time I am in Charlottesville and need to grab a bite to eat, Bodo’s is always a solid option. My family gets it at home and it’s quite good, but it’s just so enticingly fresh when you eat in. I don’t think I’ve ever gone to a restaurant more times than Bodo’s. I really do love it. For my most recent visit, I had what I usually get, an everything bagel with cream cheese and lox (raw salmon if you don’t know). My mom got a breakfast bagel sandwich including eggs, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and onion (no cream cheese!?). If anyone likes Bodo’s more than I do it is my mom. Needless to say, We both loved our food. We were at the Bodo’s on University Avenue and it was relatively easy to enter. It’s on a pretty steep road though, so it can be a little bit difficult getting to the building, Especially if you can’t find a parking spot. There aren’t very many parking spots right there. All in all, Bodo’s is a fantastic option for fast, tasty, Bagels.

  1. Hi Casey, that bagel looks delicious. I see poppy seeds and I think sesame seeds, is there another seed as well? I have been enjoying your blog, best wishes.


  2. When I visit my daughter in Pittsburgh, I always have to have Brueggers bagels, which are wonderful. I’ll have to try Bodo’s when I’m in Charlottesville the next time.


  3. Casey ..thanks for your very thoughtful review.. I’m headed to Bodo’s tomorrow morning for a tasty bagel breakfast sandwich ! Garry


  4. Bodo’s is one of my Go-Tos also. I always order a Caesar Salad and a whole wheat everything on a plate. Probably have that 2-3 times a week. Hard to find good, cheap and fast at any restaurant but Bodo’s hits the mark and has for many years.

    With regard to the “lox” I would like to add that, as a staple of many a Jewish household, particularly on Sundays, the salmon they serve is more traditionally referred to as nova (lox is the very salty direct kin of nova) and also, and perhaps this is splitting hairs, but it’s actually not raw salmon, it’s smoked salmon.

    Look forward to seeing you and your mom there sometime, or better, come over to our house one Sunday and Gayle and I will serve you and your brother and your mom and dad your Bodo’s fav plus all the very tasty traditional Jewish side dishes you won’t find on their menu.
