Is there anything better than a good bagel with cream cheese? Well, probably but it’s still darn delicious…depending on where you get it. Being from NJ I consider myself an expert haha!

Not all bagels are created equal, and there’s no arguing that certain cities have better bagels than others. So, which cities have the best?

  • Just in time for National Bagel Day (tomorrow), a new report has determined 2022’s Best Cities for Bagel Lovers.
  • The list was determined looking at the number of places that serve bagels and get high consumer reviews, plus the volume of bagel searches per city.
  • In total, 158 cities were judged for the report with an index score of 1 to 100 given based on access to bagel shops and quality and popularity of bagels
  • Landing in the top spot shouldn’t be much of a surprise – New York City.
  • New York earned a score of 87.74, well above the second place finisher, San Francisco, which only scored a 39.57.

As far as Charlotte goes I like Bagel Bin in Ballantyne, that’s a weekly stop for me!
