Bagels to die flr

Rosenfelds bagels are definitely worth it. The place is a little hole in the wall but offers everything you could want in a bagel place. They had a lot of options for both cream cheese and bagels.

Simply the best bagels one can find in Boston. Not a lot of variety, pumpkin spice in autumn, and POTATO BAGELS, so amazingly good!!

To get better bagels you have to go to New York City. They have a very wide variety. Quite busy on weekends so get there early. This is a take out place only. The only thing that is disappointing is the cream cheese that is mixed with something perhaps milk or cream but is so loose that it almost runs.... More

These bagels are by far the best I've had, including the famous ones from NYC. Sesame seed a favorite!

This place is hard to find, down steps in an easy-to-miss part of the street. Nonetheless, the bagels were very good and the challah was superb. The smoked salmon is the packaged kind, not like the NY sliced-to-order type. It's strictly take-out.

We had not been in years to this bagel haven and thought to give it a try - we found the bagels thick and doughy - will never compare to Iggy's, in my humble opinion, but a very popular place - We also bought a raspberry Danish ring that looked superb - the place was extremely busy on a Saturday...

Wife and I went here for lunch. The place is a small house turned into a sandwich shop. You can eat curb side or they have a few tables inside. I had the pastrami which I did not care for. The wife did like her reuben better then mine. But for the price they charge we could have paid gas... More

This place excellent bagels and fabulous challah. So much better than Kupels and all other bagel shops. Though I would avoid the Babka, which is way too sweet and covered in icing.

These are wonderful bagels, but too often when I visit I end up finding that they have run out of flavors I want to buy. Popularity has its dark side. The Challah is fantastic. Be aware they only take cash and this is an entirely take out operation.
