New York Bagel Bakery


Overbrook’s New York Bagel Bakery is one of our favorite places to go for a quick and casual bagel sandwich for breakfast or lunch. You can dress up the gorgeously crackly bagels with classic bacon, egg, and cheese, tuna salad and tomatoes, nova lox, or just go basic with a flavored cream cheese like apple cinnamon. They’re on the fuller side, which means if you go the sandwich route–which is the best way to eat them–be prepared for some mouth gymnastics and some super chewing. But with an ideal ratio of meat, cheese, and fluffy eggs, it’s the kind of exercise we actually look forward to.
