Were these bagels sent from above?

Set your alarm and wake up early to get your hands on what Bagel Heaven calls their “hole-e delights.”

With over 15 New York-style flavors (French Toasts, Blueberries, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Salt, Sesame, and the All-Classic), it’s hard to decide which one to devour.

Instead, grab a dozen ($12) along with a few tubs of their cream cheese (vegetable, olive, smoked salmon, cinnamon, walnut, grape, chives, and strawberry).

Since we arrived later in the day, some bagel bins were empty, so try to get there within the first few hours of operation.

We tried the whole bagel with egg, cheddar cheese and a cream cheese schmear (because why not?) for $2.90.

The end result: a simply divine bite on a budget, topped with the perfect amount of seasonings, melted cheese and chewy goodness.

Hours: 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. from Tuesday to Friday, 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. from Saturday to Sunday. Closed on Mondays.
