A Queens based (yup- the name's confusing that way) bagel shop for our fav NYC bagel. Seriously.
High quality bagels made the old-school way for the perfect crunchy crust/chewy center.
What's the Deal?
With over 15 flavors of bagel and upwards of 20 spreads you'd think it would dilute the quality but these are right up there in our top 3 bagels spots in NYC (alongside Murray's + Russ + Daughters)- and we take our bagels very seriously. They also have great fresh squeezed orange juice + some great sandwich, soup options for later in the day. We recommend starting with a mini-sized bagel (which is basically regular sized). Then size up accordingly to the regular one (which is ginormous) the next visit- because you'll be back. And then back again.
You can visit Brooklyn Bagel at one of their several locations in Astoria or in Chelsea.
