Back East Bagel Co

Word of mouth is the key to success at this charming Tempe strip-mall cafe, and no wonder. The plain bagel here is a joy to eat on its own, almost like a fresh soft pretzel. While you'll surely find ex-New Yorkers lurking in line here, Back East Bagels brings in plenty of native Arizonans, too, with cheap, tasty sandwiches and an inviting seating area.
