If you ever stumble upon Ithaca, NY go to College Town Bagels/Ithaca Bakery and proceed to have an experience that will render all other bagels obsolete.
Was in NY for a week for xmas. Bagels EVERY morning. So damn good. My wife got bagels out here 2 days ago and I didn't even know what I was eating. Just terrible.
I could eat Bagel Boss cream cheese with a spoon. I pity the fool that thinks Philadelphia cream cheese is good cream cheese.

Agreed. Philadelphia sucks in all its endeavors.
Oh and there is nothing better than a NY everything bagel with good cream cheese and mother ****in LOX!
Lox or smoked salmon makes my day worth living.
An everything bagel to me must have salt. Every time I get bagel else where and it doesn't, its just not right.
Just got back from Big Apple Bagels. Not bad. Everything is pretty good. Its not even in the same universe as Bagel Boss though.
New York Bagel & Bialy is by far the best bagel in the Chicagoland area.
They have a couple locations, but I think the original in Lincolnwood is the best.
My order is usually a Garlic Bagel, toasted, with heavy schmear.
Proud only one of you mentioned einsten's and their horrible bagels!
We have a local place that's good. But when I was in NY it was a lot better
Nothing beats NY bagels; even Long Island bagels are far superior to any others I've had.
Living in CT, my one and only choice is Ami's Bagels in Waterbury.
