  • IGA in Sag Harbor had very good bagels considerring it was a grocery store. The bagel shop in town by the water is pretty good…but I refuse to go in there …the help and owners are not very nice .

  • “Bagels 101” in Middle Island on Middle Country Road at Rocky Point Road. Between Friendly’s amd Rite-Aid. They are hand made in the traditional way that includes boiling before baking. These are real bagels, not the cake-like imitators that are so commonly passed off as bagels.

  • It really pains me to say this but……Panera

  • Mount Sinai Bagel Cafe is great
