I was visiting the Washington Square Arch in Greenwich Village, New York quite early in the morning. My friends and I were looking for a quick breakfast place near by, and we found Bagel Bob’s listed in our trusty Not For Tourists for NY guide book.
This was a tiny bagel shop with only a couple tables in the shop. Bagel Bob’s didn’t just sell bagels, they had sandwiches and wraps too, but we were more interesting in eating the bagels. We got a Plain Bagel with Garlic and Herb cream cheese, a Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese with Everything Bagel, and a Whole Wheat Bagel with Strawberry Cream Cheese.
The food came out pretty fast, and the bagels were nice and warm. They were so fresh. The bagels had a really nice flaky crust, the middle was doughy and super soft. They were probably the freshest bagel I’ve ever had.
The best one out of the 3 we ordered has to be the Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese with Everything Bagel. First of all, you just cannot go wrong with that combination. And secondly, it was the best Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese bagel I’ve had in my life. The bagel itself was so delicious, everything tasted so fresh. It had a little bit of capers, and a little bit of dill. The amount of salmon and cream cheese ratio was just perfect. We really wanted to order another one of it to go.
It’s really too bad my picture below can’t do it justice. I absolutely miss these bagels. Since Bagel Bob’s is located near NYU, the food was inexpensive too. Amazing bagel shop, must visit!
