We opted for the bagels that were the hottest - ie. the ones fresh from the oven. Pumpernickel was the winner.
How were they? Piping hot and pretty good. They were mild on the pumpernickel flavor and with a bit of lox and cream cheese, made for satisfying breakfast.
Whenever you're in town, be sure to stop by H & H Bagels (and hop over to Zabar's across the street for a larger selection of spreads and another quintessential New York experience).
H & H Bagels is located at 2239 Broadway Ave (at W 80th St) in NYC. Thanks to Hagan and H & H Bagels for the nice start to the day!
