      Love cinnamon raisin bagels but, gotta be honest - they're a pastry and not a bread.

        I certainly would not....but I would defend to the death your right to do it.

          Cream cheese on warm cinnamom raisin, yes. Lox, no.

            NO. And I don't even consider anything with cinnamon (food of the gods but not for bagels) or raisins a bagel.

              Well, I greatly like that combo and I also like vegetable cream cheese on a cinn-raisin bagel; the sweet with the salty and savory is the way to go. I also like:
              Smoked salmon, tomato and cream cheese on a sesame bagel.
              Date-nut cream cheese on a onion (yes, onion) bagel.
              Scallion cream cheese on a cinn-raisin or pumpernickel bagel.
              Cream cheese and strawberry jam on a garlic (yes, garlic) bagel.
              Virgina ham, cream cheese and onion on a cinn-raisin bagel.

              PS I used to work in a deli in Brooklyn, bagels were my thing.

                Don't think that goes together, be kind of like putting preserves on a garlic bagel. But if you like it, go for it!

                  I have seen plenty of people who do just that. Not my thing, I don't like sweet tastes. But if I had to eat a cinnamon raisin bagel I'd want to kick it up a notch with sharp and salty.

                    I would put cream cheese on a raisin bagel but not lox or any kind of fish.
