best bagels in Bay Ridge-maybe all of Brooklyn

  • m

I'd like to mention Dale Bagels (7715 5th Ave, Bay Ridge). I'm new to New York so maybe not a bagel expert but these are the best bagels I've ever had anywhere. I've noticed that Bagel Boys on 3rd Ave is always packed but Dale Bagels is not. I think it has to do with the decor, Bagel Boys is shiny and Dale Bagels is a bit less fresh looking. But if you are after a good bagel- go to Dale.

      I am also a resident of Bay Ridge and I think that both Dale and the place on 3rd Avenue and maybe 67th? are fantastic.

    2. if you love bagels, you must try bagel hole in park slope....delicious old-fashioned bagels and not the size of a frisbee!!

      1. Eating a Dale Bagal right now for the first time. Plain, lightly toasted, cc and lox. Crispy and light on the outside - wonderfully dense on the inside. The amount of cc and lox is just right - enough to ooze a bit, but not gush onto my lap. I have to admit, the best bagel I've ever had.

          The only Dale Bagels that exists is at 6201 18th Avenue, try those bagels if you are around.

        2. Bagel Boy - Avenue Z & East 17th - has the best everything bagels you'll ever taste.
