Best Bagels on Long Island

by Best Of Long Island on January 6, 2010

Bagels and Long Island go together like, well, bagels and lox. Bagel stores are everywhere and a bagel and coffee has become a part of so many morning routines. Long Islanders like the original varieties—onion, egg, sesame, poppy—let the rest of the country have blueberry and the like. We’ve got the best.

Long Islanders Have Voted Bagel Boss The Best Bagel On Long Island!

With a dozen LI locations, this chain keeps a loyal following because of its consistent quality—the bagels are chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside.

I worked for one of the original Bagel Boss franchisees in Great Neck. All I can say is I gained 10 lbs and not because I worked their but because their selection of bagels is plentiful and each one is delicious. That location is unfortunately long gone and I now frequent Hicksville.

Wellwood bagels in Lindenhurst are the best bagels I have tasted since bagel bin in Queens-I have moved out to Long Island and have not yet found a good bagel in 10 years until I came upon Wellwood Bagels they have a great variety to choose from.-I enjoy the French Toast bagel. They have a great staff of workers polite/friendly and a comfortable atmosphere. What better way to start my day off just relaxing with a cup of coffee and a bagel with good people. I recommend this Bagel store to all. They are the best tasting bagels and cooked just the way a Bagel should be. “They finally brought Great Bagels back into the Hood”.

J.R always a customer

Wellwood bagels are so good. They are kettle boiled the old fashioned way. Not like those commercial places. The bagels at Wellwood bagels are made with care.
