Tucked along Belford Avenue at Prospect, the recently opened Frankly Bagels offers not just bagels but also a few breakfast items and a selection of pastries. Aside from the ten bagels that form a core part of their menu, the outlet also has a few specials. These tend to sell out quickly, so arriving early is advised if you would like to try them.

The chicken in their Chimichurri Chicken Bagel was cooked just right, with the chimichurri sauce subtly enhancing their flavour. Freshness was provided by the cos lettuce and tomatoes.

The smoked salmon in their Smoked Salmon Bagel had a nice degree of smokiness and was partnered nicely by remoulade, a mayonnaise-based sauce which included capers for a tangy flavour. Some crunch was provided by slices of red onion and a scattering of pumpkin seeds over the top.

While we found the slices of beef in the Salt Beef Bagel to be a bit tough for our tastes, but it still had a delightful savoury flavour. The combination of hot English mustard and pickles gave the dish its distinctive sharp taste.

Compared to the Chimichurri Chicken, the use of tarragon mayonnaise in the Tarragon Chicken Bagel gave it a more pronounced herby flavour. The chicken was complemented well by the fresh greens, and the celery and walnuts added a lovely crunchy element. All their bagels use a poppy seed-topped bagel and had the chewy texture we expected but yet remained soft.

The café caters mainly for takeaway but there are a few tables for dine-in customers. If you are looking for a place where you can get good bagels, consider giving Frankly Bagels a visit.

Do all the bagels have seeds on them? If so it excludes people with Diverticulitis from being able to eat them
