Goldberg’s Deli

There are some things that transcend Atlanta’s fabled brunch culture. Beyond the deviled eggs and the skillet scrambles, beyond the 45 minute waits to be seated when all you want is something to munch on the go, is something much simpler: bagels. Bagels and lox. Bagels and cream cheese. Bagels and egg and cheese and bacon and sausage and…an endless list of fillings, toppings, schmears, and salads.

And the place to find them in Atlanta is Goldberg’s Deli.

But bagels isn’t all that Goldberg’s does: you can get all your New York-style deli food here, so whether you’re looking for a pastrami sandwich, matzoh ball soup, chopped liver salad, or one of the city’s best Reubens, one of Goldberg’s five locations has you covered.

In addition to the store next to OK Cafe, you can find a Goldberg’s in Marietta, Peachtree Street & 12th, Roswell Road just north of Buckhead, on Chamblee Dunwoody at I-285, and in Toco Hills.



With hundreds of bagels flying off the shelves every day, you might wonder how Goldberg’s has the time to cook its bagels the old-fashioned way — first blanching them in boiling water before baking them in the oven. Dedication to doing it the right way is the answer, and it’s totally worth the effort.


Corned beef, sauerkraut, Russian dressing, and Swiss cheese on rye bread, slowly toasted on the outside so the cheese melts and the beef steams on the inside. Absolutely unbeatable.
