It’s National Bagel Day Everyday at These 12 Great Upstate New York Cafes
"Bagels for everybody!"
January 15 is National Bagel Day. But I ask you this. Who celebrates the delicious and almighty bagel with just one day of the year?
I like bagels several times a week, personally.
Everyone knows New York has the best bagels in the country. While our friends down near New York City may argue their bagels are the absolute best, us Upstate New Yorkers have managed to come up with quite the even match of bagels. From poppyseed and plain to sesame seed and cinnamon raisin, there is a bagel for everyone.
Bagel shops are everywhere in Upstate New York. From big cities to small towns (as you will see in this list), every region has its go-to spot for a great bagel. Coffee shops have bagels, as do sandwich shops and restaurants. Depending on how you like your bagel and what you want on it will help you decide where to go to get one. The thing I like about a bagel (well, besides the bagel itself) is that it is a perfect vehicle to carry your favorite foods in. From bacon and eggs to smoked salmon to peanut butter and jelly, a bagel is a delicious platform for tasty adventures on the go or in the comfort of your own home.
Here are a dozen great bagel shops in Upstate New York. But don't just wait for National Bagel Day to come around to celebrate. Stop in today!
