What Makes Bagels The Best Bagels?

Here’s a list of the key factors in determining whether a local shop meets the standards of the most discriminating bagel lovers:

  • They’re made in Brooklyn, New York. Period.
  • New York City water makes the tastiest!
  • The quality of the cream cheese is equally important, preferably scallion!
  • Sandwiches must be offered on the menu!
  • The kettle-baking process results in a nice and crispy outer crust.
