Now everyone knows that New York is famed for its bagels, it´s an iconic bread that is sold all over the world. However, there is nowhere better in the world to get a bagel than from in the City, more precisely Brooklyn. Here at FeelNYC, we know that as a tourist coming to the city it can be overwhelming with the amount of choice and not knowing where is good, and where quite frankly isn´t. Hence, we´ve been round Brooklyn testing numerous bagel shops in order to compile a list of what we think are the top 5- don´t thank us, we enjoyed it!
The superb bagels that are being produced by Bagel hole are becoming more well known by the day for the perfectly crunchy crust, yet beautifully soft interior packed with flavor. All bagels are freshly baked on the premises throughout the day- you can even grab a fresh one in the evening.
