Now Open: THB Bagels and Deli of Timonium

Tony Scotto and company have opened their third Towson Hot Bagels café in the Yorkridge Shopping Center.

I was secretly hoping that Tony Scotto would change the name of his popular café from Towson Hot Bagels to Timonium Hot Bagels, after finalizing a move to the area earlier this week.

Scotto opened his third bagel shop over the weekend, with a grand opening celebration Monday. 

On Tuesday, Patch had lunch at the .

I hadn't dined at a THB since college, and frankly, didn't miss having to pay for parking in Towson.  The bagels were good, but not worth the potential $75 ticket I was risking for not paying the meter. 

I tried the Al Pacino sub Tuesday with a side of macaroni salad. I believe this best sums up my feelings about it. 

The shop is larger with considerably more tables and it's a welcome addition to the lacking WiFi enabled dining spots of Timonium. (But more on that later.)

But enough about me. 

How do you feel about THB making a move to Timonium? If you've already been to the new shop, which features a new menu—consider posting a review in our Patch Places directory .

I hope that they enjoy their popularity for now. Once Goldberg's opens in the Padonia shopping center next to Mars it will be all over for THB. Goldberg's is absolutely THE BEST bagel shop in Maryland. Their bagels are HUGE and COMPLETELY COVERED with whatever topping you get. The variety of bagels is great. Sorry THB, but you are going up against the Heavyweight Champion of bagels in the not too distant future. (NOTE: I am NOT affiliated with Goldberg's in any way. However, when I was still a member of the working class, I was called upon by the members of our bagel club at work to bring in the bagels each week and Goldberg's was our shop of choice...hands down.

I've been waiting and waiting for Goldberg's to open at Padonia, but I haven't seen nor heard anything yet. They were supposed to open in May. Any word on the official date?

Goldberg's AND Wegman's have better chewier bagels than THB. THB are 'white bread' bagels - not bad, just not 'real' bagels.

Ah yes faux bagels for sure but much better than Einstein's and the Bagel Shop in Towson and HV. I like Wegman's for my freezer as they taste great when reheated. I like Goldberg's fresh from the shop. If you want reviews of THB, check Yelp where I was the first to cover the new store in Lutherville.
