Where to find the best bagels around Charlotte, NC
Very few things scream comfort food like a bagel. In some cases, it’s not uncommon to eat one – depending on the size – and stay full for most of the day. If that’s not for you, bagels are the perfect food that can be split in half to share with a friend or save for later. They are also the perfect container for a sandwich – breakfast or lunch.
Maybe it’s the shape and texture of the bread that makes a bagel so appealing. Or maybe his mate – cream cheese or spread – sets him apart. It could also be the portability of a bagel or the endless flavor combinations that are realistically achievable, depending on where you prefer.
