Good Bread

The folks over at Good Bread take a different, “breadier” approach to bagels. Foregoing the traditional dense interior and glossy, leathery exterior, Good Bread bagels are light and crisp on the outside and moist and airy on the inside, making for a delightful mouthfeel and delicious breakfast nosh. According to staff, the cheese bagels are most popular, but we opted for the sesame and loved them with herb and garlic cream cheese. In fact, we had two. While bagel purists may pooh-pooh this take on a classic, those with an open mind and a fondness for fluffy bread will want to make their way to Good Bread stat. P.S. The cinnamon buns are also stellar.
