When it comes to comfort food, our local bagel spots know how to do it – there’s nothing like a hot bacon, egg and cheese on a bagel, or even just a freshly-made, still warm bagel smattered with cream cheese on a winter morning to take the chill out of that January air.

On National Bagel Day on Jan. 15, feel free to enjoy a bagel from one of these local spots without feeling even an ounce of guilt. With both the foodie-friendly holiday and all of us needing a dose of comfort food, dig in and enjoy!
