favorita bagel places on long island???? good, homemade bagels too, no generic stuff that i could find in the freezer section. i love 24 hour bagels in oceanside. they have great whole wheat everything & whole wheat flagels (sp?) with sunflower seeds.
does any another place offer good speciality bagels like that, esp whole wheat? & not like wheat mixes, or wheat flecks - im talking a dark whole wheat bagel.
I like Bagel Boss- there's a location right near Roosevelt Field Mall. They have a great pumpernickel bagel and I think a whole wheat everything bagel.
It's a kosher place, so no bacon or any meat, but they do have great fat free veggie tuna.
I like the First Class Bagels stores. They're not great, but they're genuine and with a couple of dozen varieties the hit/miss has enough hits. They really need some food science for the bagels. For example, their bacon and egg bagel has both bacon and egg (You can see the bacon bits all over and the texture/color shows the egg), but it's hard to actually taste them. Still, they've enough good ones, with my favorite being the honey wheat.
Not sure how many whole wheat varieties they have, but, with so many to choose from you're bound to get one you like there. And, they also have a bunch of toppings. I should get around to trying a strawberry bagel with strawberry cream cheese.
my father in law picked up some bagels a while ago from a place (want to say he told me it was in amityville? maybe farmingdale?) that had great chewy small bagels. they were plain (or at least that is the only kind he got) but they didn't appear to be mini-bagels, just smaller than your standard bagel. probably closer in size to a lender's bagel.
Does anyone know what i am talking about?
I like Gold & Meyer's in Plainview. And Fairway's mini bagels too.
On the North Shore - Let There Be Bagels in Port Washington is great. And bonus points for the name:-)
