Beigel Bake

Bakery in Clerkenwell, Shoreditch & Spitalfields

This relic of the Jewish East End still does a brisk trade serving dirt-cheap home-made bagels (stuffed with smoked salmon and cream cheese, salt beef and pickles, or a handful of other fillings) to hungry shoppers and late-night boozers. There's a queue no matter the time of day or night, but the curt staff keep things moving.
