Harlem may have only one bagel shop, but oh what a bagel shop it is - the kind where you always leave with way more bagels than you planned to buy. Behind the giant bagel hanging in the window is a full-fledged baking operation where the chewy-on-the-inside, subtly-crispy-on-the-outside bagels are made from scratch (the fresh-from-the-oven smell is another giveaway). There are more than a dozen varieties, from the traditional to the slightly more adventurous (think onion & garlic, pumpernickel cranberry, za’atar). Choose from all types of cream cheese or specialty sandwiches piled high with creative combos, like the Nacho Camacho with chili, jalapeno cream cheese, lettuce, and tomato on a three-cheese bagel. But if you want to keep it simple, get an egg-and-cheese sandwich, which always comes out all hot and melty.
