Putting aside the question of who makes the best bagels in town, hound consensus revolved around a couple of spots. The first is Bagels by Us (which ironically imports its bagels from New York’s H&H). “Great bagels, great sandwich ingredients, great people. And, if you eat in, you can get a side of Tater Tots!” advises litchick. The other favorite is Bagel Rising, where the long lines of students attest to the popularity of sandwiches like the sunrise special, with a choice of bacon, sausage, or ham.
