Bagels in Brooklyn the way they used to be

Susan Weiss | Feb 17, 1999 03:46 PM

Being a lover of great bagels, I couldn't find a bagel anymore outside of Zabars on the upper west side, that didn't have sugar in it. None of them were tasting anymore like the bagels I grew up eating, although I knew that out there in NY there had to be other wonderful bagels, I just wasn't finding them. Until recently. A life long inhabitant of Brooklyn told me that the best bagels in NY were at a place on Ave. X. called Bake City Bagels. I drove there, and sampled a fresh hot poppy seeded bagel, and discovered to my great pleasure a real OLD FASHIONED BAGEL!! 357 Ave X, between 1st & West Sts. GREAT BAGELS!! And very nice people who work there. I work in Sheepshead Bay, and it's not too far from my office.

Check it out if you're a real bagel person. My seven year old daughter is a bagel maven and take her work for it on those bagels.
