Everyone has a favorite bagel place in the city, and ours is Philly Style Bagels in Fishtown. It’s a small corner spot off Frankford where there’s nowhere sit and eat, but it’s right next to a park, which is a much better place to eat a bagel anyways. Their bagels aren’t the big fluffy kind you’ll find elsewhere - they’re much more petite and, in our opinion, that makes them more flavorful. They’re also boiled in beer, which we’re assuming is what makes them “Philly style” as opposed to the kind made everywhere else.
Pretty much get anything you get here will be good, but if you’re coming from out of the neighborhood, you should be getting one of their sandwiches instead of just the sesame bagel toasted with butter that you usually get on a Sunday morning. Our favorites are the banh mi and the hummus sandwiches, but truly, they’ll all make you wonder what you were doing before you found this place. They do tend to have a line out the door on weekend mornings, but it goes quickly and is usually gone by noon.
