The Bagel Restaurant and Deli

50 Old Orchard Shopping Center, Skokie, IL 60077


Classic comfort foods including soup & sandwiches keep locals coming to this diner-like mainstay.

Come in and enjoy matzo ball soup or lox and bagels at this delicious restaurant and deli. When our parents and grandparents arrived from the Old World, they brought with them a lifetime of prized, traditional recipes. Armed with these marvelous family secrets and a desire to provide authentic Jewish cooking, they established The Bagel in 1950 as a premier ethnic eatery dedicated to serving delicious traditional cooking.
