Welcome to Chi-Town’s Home for Steamed Bagel Sandwiches. Who does the Windy City turn to when the craving for hot, soft, deliciously baked bagels and sandwiches hits? The answer is clear: Chicago Bagel Authority.
At Chicago Bagel Authority, we like to think we’re changing the world one bagel at a time…the Lincoln Park neighborhood that our West Armitage Avenue location proudly serves continuously rants and raves about the CBA experience, citing “darn delicious” items like the Dirty Swede, Sara’s Secret – loaded with avocado, sprouts and a healthy dollop of mustard – the Ron Swanson with just about every type of meat imaginable on it and more. But perhaps most enticing and magnetic about Chicago Bagel Authority is the almost unexplainable “cool and hip” aura paralleled by the community that only Chicagoans – and Chicago eateries – can pull off. Sure, you may walk in totally overwhelmed by our menu and the variety it offers…but once you find the sandwich of your dreams, there is no looking back.
Meats freshly sliced…cheeses beautifully melted…steamed and toasted bagels that scream for the most delightful of ingredients to be piled upon them. Do we have you salivating yet? How about turkey on a steamed onion bagel with cucumbers, chive cream cheese, lettuce, sprouts, tomato and mayo, with some bacon and Colby and cheddar cheese to make the “Dirty Swede”…or perhaps something truly out of the ordinary like a pretzel chocolate chip cookie, a bacon chocolate chip cookie, a Rice Krispie treat taken to a whole other level or a unique soup-of-the-day like Veggie Tomato with Tortellini.
With some 85 choices of sandwiches to choose from – including those with names like the Tonya Harding Club, Wam-Oand Wrigley Fielder – Chicago Bagel Authority will quickly become your go-to sandwich shop when in the Windy City. And if bagels aren’t your thing, our creations are available on a sub roll. We also boast an extensive catering menu perfect for meetings, parties, tailgate events and luncheons.
When the craving hits…Chicago Bagel Authority doesn’t quit!
