Liberty Bagels Midtown
At the Liberty Bagels near Penn Station, there’s a bouncer at the door to manage the line, even on weekday mornings. It’s also always packed, so plan to take your food to go. While the options might seem gimmicky at first (this is, after all, a place that proudly advertises options like rainbow bagels and birthday cake cream cheese), we love the off-the-wall flavors here. The bagels are pleasantly chewy and packed with flavor, and we’ve yet to try a cream cheese option we don’t love. For a spicy, savory option, we love the jalapeño everything bagel with chipotle cream cheese. If you have a sweet tooth, you’re going to love the Oreo cream cheese. It’s good on just about anything.
