    The ideal place to eat a bagel is while walking - does that count as transit or other?

    In my mouth is the proper place to eat a bagel.

    I would consider that transit, unless you are walking on a treadmill

    Yeah my ideal bagel is purchase from a cafe or deli, toasted with cream cheese, and eating it while walking somewhere else to go do errands or whatever

    I also enjoy like, a bagel sandwich, bacon egg and cheese sort of thing, but those are a sit down affair (so either kitchen or restaurant, depending)

    I really dig a whole wheat bagel with poppyseeds, medium toast with cream cheese and a dash of pepper. Really basic, but totally delicious.

    I would agree with this but I had to vote bed because the best bagel I ever had was waking up to a glass of pedialyte and a hangover bagel prepared by an extremely kind friend after a house party. Truly a bro who knew how to fry an egg and put it inside a bagel.

    One of my favourite things is a bagel, toasted, with philadelphia spread on top, then some smoked salmon, avocado, lemon juice and dill

    And I eat that in the kitchen

    They're basically a less fluffy variant of parisian bagels.

    To be honest, I don't think I've ever eaten a bagel outside of an office setting.
    Like, they send out an email saying "I got bagels for us in the break room" I'm all about it.

    But to purchase bagels on my own? Seems weird.
    Like, if I'm going to buy a bagel, why wouldn't I get a muffin instead? Or a donut?

    I don't know if they'd satisfy a new yorker but they're in that style and they're both the best bagels I've ever had, and better than any I can buy locally

    @Larlar has bagel opinions.

    I once advised him to get bagels in New York and afterwards he told me New York bagels were pitiful gutter trash compared to Montreal bagels (paraphrased)

    I avoid baking my own bagels purely because I don't need to seed my apartment with that kind of carb-laden landmine field, but it's almost worth it to have that super fresh bagel experience.

    Another good way to eat a bagel is lightly toasted with butter and prickly pear jelly.

    NYC, preferably either on the train or walking from whatever deli to wherever is next on the agenda

    edit: OR walking three steps and then sitting on a curb or a stoop because you're too hungover to function until you get the bagel and blisteringly hot coffee into your body

    best place to eat a bagel is sitting at the window counter of frankel's delicatessen, but that's not very viable for the time being

    They're completely orthogonal options! A donut is a sugar-laden grease bomb you consume to feel bad about yourself. A bagel is lunch.

    I’m just a dumb Texas boy who doesn’t have much frame of reference but I thought they were pretty good. Even if I’m a heathen for not liking sesame seed ones.

    I’m sure I’ve been in donut shops that make their own bagels but if I’m in a donut shop I’m getting kolaches.

    My favorite bagels are probably breakfast sammich bagels.

    I used to get them on occasion and I cannot remember where, it certainly wasn't in the city i live in that's for sure

    I used to eat a bagel for breakfast everyday until my doctor was like "hey that's your entire allocation of carbs for the day in just one bagel"

    Bagels are like 4 slices of bread smooshed together.

    I do still sometimes get one from the local Jewish deli as a weekend treat, though, with a herb garlic schmear of course

    They should bring back stuffed bagel bites.

    They were like regular bagel bites but instead of pizza on a bagel the pizza was inside the bagel's skin, like it was in a horrible teleportation accident.

    A park. Get one at a deli, walk to the nearest park and sit on the bench.

    Egg and cheese on an everything bagel. Bacon egg and cheese if it's from a halal cart.

    4 slices of bread is too many carbs?

    Wtf are you supposed to eat instead?
