As a new Chicago transplant from the East Coast, I am relieved to have a go-to deli to meet my Jewish food needs. The bagels are excellent and babka is *chef's kiss!*
Beyond the extraordinarily tasty tasty bagels and sourdough bread, the Zeitlin’s team are also extremely kind, welcoming, and hospitable.
I just found you on Wazwan! Excellent selections, deeeeelicious food. The bagels I got, along with the Baby Babka, were fabulous.
Chicago is not known as a bagel city. Zeitlin's Delicatessen is changing that. Bagel Dog 4 life!
If Zeitlin's had a shop in Manhattan next to Yelp's #1 bagel spot, Zeitlin's would still have a line out the door. And yes, I lived in NYC for 4 years.
Last time I ordered I was like, oh my, this is so good. I just kept going back to the kitchen to put more butter on the bread.
I totally could eat Zeitlin's bagels every day.
