Manhattan Bread & Bagel has been a South Bay staple since 1992, and it’s easy to see why. They have shelves lined with pies, breads, and muffins, all of which are entirely deserving of your attention. But focus on the bagels. Texturally, they’re superb - each one is covered in tiny bubbles from a quick boil at high heat, and inside, they strike the perfect balance between light and dense. Toppings are a la carte - we usually go for a sesame seed bagel, topped with whipped cream cheese, avocado, and tomato.
