Through the winter the windows of my local shop remain shrouded in steam.  Inside the enormous kettle sits in a windowed corner to give passers by a glimpse  into the world of bagel making.  A wood fired oven roars regardless of the season.  This time of year it is a welcome and cozy site.

I come back time and time again for the everything bagel with the zaatar scallion cream cheese.  Sometimes I get the walnut honey spread.  The bagels have a delicious chew and subtle smokiness.  While some might say they are on the small size I would beg to differ.  Their rich flavor and texture more than satisfy.

Bonus: there is a crossword at the end of the coffee bar.  Tear one off to go or stay for a while in the ambient warmth with your coffee, bagel.
