The 7 Best Bagel Shops in Manhattan, New York City – 2016
Bagels; the holly life buoys of our stomach! Actually it is a bread product that is originated from the Jewish communities in Poland.
A bagel has a number of different dough types (whole grain, rye etc.) Simply these doughs firstly boiled for a short time in water then baked. If you like; you can consume them plain or with fillings. Like salmon (lax), meat, cream, ham, egg, combo etc.
As we are in love with bagels; we searched “The 7 best bagel shops in Manhattan” and listed it for you.
There you go! Enjoy…
1- Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Co.
For us, best bagel in the world. Never understood what a “good” bagel was until coming here. Definitely recommend the ”plain bagel” with sliced lox, scallion cream cheese and a slice of tomato. Their cream cheese flavors are exceptional as well.

2- Tompkins Square Bagels
We love local shops so much. Here is the original one. These bagels are baked hourly. Because of that, toasting is not recommended. Our favorite one is whole-grain with bacon and chesee. Cozy and crowded but definitely worth the wait.
