I was at Bread & Butter Bakery this morning, and instead of getting my usual banana muffin, chocolate croissant or mini-brioche (all excellent), I tried a salt bagel. It was much better than the other bagel I had there once, and now I can understand why other posters have appreciated these bagels so much. It was very chewy with a hard crust and had big salt crystals. Very tasty. 85 cents. I had it plain but they do serve cream cheese at the bakery.
Bread and Butter Bakery is on the corner of Green St. and Washington St. in Jamaica Plain, near the Green Street T stop on the orange line.
