Best of Boston

1998 Best Bagel

Brooklyn Bagel

How far did we have to go to find the best bagel? To Brooklyn, by way of Framingham Center. Firm on the outside, hot on the inside, these babies come in varieties that torment purists and tantalize the rest of us – jalapeno, apple cinnamon, banana nut, and spinach. You can even watch them being made through a window to the kitchen.
