If you can't sell bagels in Coolidge Corner, does that say something about you?

Finagle-a-Bagel in Coolidge Corner is now Fini-a-bagel.

Aren't there *non-chain* purveyors of bagels around there?

Katz's in Chelsea is the only REAL bagel place left around here. It's real old and real old school. It's not a cafe to sit in like the popular bagel chains of the 90's were. Go get your dozen in a non-descript brown paper bag, and maybe a couple of black-and-white cookies and you're all set. Their pizza-bagels are so-so, you have to heat them yourself.

Bagels and whitefish salad, what more can you ask for?

Then again, I haven't been there for years (that part of Brookline is soooo far away from Roslindale), so maybe things have changed?

A bagel from New Jersey is better than Kupels. I think people like it because they think they're supposed to. It's sort of like Rubin's. It's only a good deli because it's the only proper deli and it's been there forever. That's all it needs to coast on, I guess.

There are plenty of independent Bagel places in the Coolidge Corner / Allston area. I do have to say though that on a whim I tried the finagle a bagel in question about a month ago, and wow did I get sick.

Kupel's is the best bagels in the area; despite the fact that I moved from the Brookline area over a decade ago, I still make regular runs to Kupel's monthly:)

used to eat at FAB 3-4 times a week - I'm down to one and that's for a basic bagel and cream cheese on a weekend morning. Their prices have gone through the roof and are now 20-30% more expensive than my other sandwich places where I can get a sandwich and a soda for $6-7 in Back Bay.

I wasn't aware that Finagle-a-Bagel sold bagels. They sell these Wonder-bread-like-things shaped like either a donut or doughnut (depending on which coast you're from), with some funny-flavored stuff occasionally streaked on the outside.

Now if only Kupel's could re-open on Friday nights...

FAB also closed their State Street shop, which until a few years ago was in Quincy Market. Seems they aren't doing the business they once did. Are they independent or owned by someone else?
