Best Bagel shop: Noah’s
And Noah brought to the ark bagels of every kind. Two by two he brought them, regular, egg, garlic, poppy seed, pumpernickel, pretzel, and all the rest, and they set sail from New York to California, where there were created cheddar jalapeno bagels, and cinnamon raisin, and Dutch apple crunch, and Tuscan pesto bagels, and bagels of all kinds did go forth and multiply and were topped with shmears of cream cheese and salmon, and our readers saw that it was good.
