Best Bagels

Bruegger's Bagel Bakery

Bruegger's is the place to stop when you need to pick up something for that lame office buzzword-buzzkill meeting. These stores offer kettle-boiled bagels—just like bubby used to make—and Wi-Fi, so you can tweet about your newly discovered bagel hotspot. Bruegger's opened in 1983, and claims to have started the retail-bagel concept, with assembly-line-style bagel sandwiches liberating the formerly too-ethnic bagel.
