Best bagels/appetizing on Long Island (South Shore)?

Heading to the beach tomorrow, want to pick up some bagels and appy on the way. Where to go? Thanks!

  1. Belongs on Tristate board. Always had a place I liked in Bellmore on Jerusalem Ave.

    1. Bagel Boss in Bay Shore makes a great bagel just a few miles down the road from the Robert Moses exit on Montauk Hwy and Fire Isaland ferries.

        Yes, we've had Bagel Boss in Oceanside, quite a good bagel and good appetizing too. We ended up at the place in Bellmore (can't recall the name though- Bellmore Bagel, perhaps? Either way, it wasn't Lotsa Bagel, also on Jerusalem Ave., which was kind of a hole). The bagel was quite good, a little sweet- appetizing was average. Thanks for the recs!

          Had Bagel Boss again, this time in Merrick. Definitely the better bagel. They even had "egg everything" flavor, which I have never seen anywhere else. And the whitefish salad was a cut above most other bagel places- not quite as mayonnaise-y and more discernible chunks of fish. And they make a great black and white cookie. So, a big thumbs up.
