Mt. Bagel isn’t a physical place. It’s an online operation where you place an order on their website, and then a mysterious man comes to your home and drops off a brown paper sack full of the greatest bagels this state has ever seen. The options are pretty standard but reliably great, from a garlicky everything to sharp cheddar, and there are even homemade cream cheese schmears, too (get the spicy scallion). The whole thing’s like getting a visit from the tooth fairy, except you’re the one giving the money, and nobody has to exchange teeth. The website only opens up one month at a time, only delivers on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and they sell out very fast. So check often and plan in advance.
