How sad, I cannot find an independent bagel place in the Springfield area.
Between Rounds went out of business on Boston Road, Manhattan Bagel at the "X" went out of business. The 3 other bagel places my GPS told me about, I called and they were all out of business!
Formerly of NJ, I tend to like NY style bagels; chewey on the outside and bready inside.
I was delighted to see a PRICE CHOPPER open in Windsor, CT - and one with an instore bagelry at that! I was familiar with the bagels when I lived in Poughkeepsie, NY and they were excellent. Luckily these are also very good. But, it's kinda far. And I'd like to find a bagel deli that cooks up egg sandwiches, too.
