    Dedicated prep area and dedicated toaster. The guy behind the counter changed gloves immediately. I was feeling very confident...and then watched him smear cream cheese on from the same bin that they were using for regular bagels. So close to perfect. As another posted mentioned, I’d go next door to Friedman’s.

    Great gf bagels! A little on the smaller side. Best I’ve had though.

    The GF bagels and egg sandwich was delicious. Separate toasters and GF prep area. We will be returning.

    Frozen gluten free bagels and they use the same toaster as regular bagels to heat and toast.

    Although they have dedicated toaster, they have cross-contamination in the prep area, and they admitted to me that if you are Celiac you should only eat next door at Freidman's and not at Brown's Bagels. The gluten-free bagels are also frozen, not fresh, and very small. I am hoping this online review will spur them to make changes and create a completely safe gluten-free prep area including safe prep with the cream cheese spreads and butter, changing of gloves by staff etc.

    They have a dedicated toaster, cutting area. It took them much longer to get my bagel sandwich prepped, but it was delicious. I didn't mind waiting, considering they were doing it right.

    So knowledgeable about GF preparation. Separate area for anything GF, including dedicated toasters and spreads. Bagels are delicious!!

    THEY USE FROZEN BAGELS BY THE GREATER KNEED. These are not homemade! Knew nothing about cross contamination when it came to the cream cheese or butter. I honestly have no idea how their rating is so high on this. The only plus was they had a separate toaster. But t didn’t matter because they cut the bagel on the same cutting board they had just cut a normal sandwich on.

    Hot everything bagel with many cream cheese choices and a cappuccino with no hassles, issues or looks. What a joy.

    I trekked here in the snow for the GF cinnamon raisin bagel... Yes they have a separate toaster. I asked them to change gloves. Butter for my bagel was a different matter - it's an extra charge and they take it from the same tub they use to spread non GF bagels and there are crumbs in it - I opted out of the butter but be aware of the potential for cross contamination. GF bagels are tiny...

    Not just a corner bagel cart, but a full fledged breakfast restaurant. They have gf bagels of different flavors, brownies, and muffins of different flavors. Would come again

    They have a separate toaster and prep area and well as separate spreads. The bagels are very good and I definitely recommend Browns Bagels!

    Separate prep area, several flavors of bagels (I had cinnamon raisin). Bagels are stored separate in a drawer in their own bag. They gave separate prep area and toaster. The cream cheese was tasty and generously doled out!

    Brown's doesn't make their own gf bagels but it was still a treat. $5 for a bagel and cream cheese is steep but they use a dedicated toaster, knives and change gloves and are very good about cc. It's connected to Friedman's Lunch next door which is fantastic for gf.

    Good knowledge of gluten free. Used a separate toaster/prep area.
