Brooklyn water....Brooklyn baked
Pros: NYC baked Frozen Bagels
Cons: Frozen Bagels
"I have been living in the Poconos for over 20+ years and I was excited when I heard a bagel shop was opening up. The West End only had bakeries that put a hole in a roll and called it bagel. The Bagel Experience opened some years ago and their bagels are great but they are a bit too far to get them. The Brooklyn Bridge Bagels advertise that they use New York City and the fact is that NYC has some of the best water in the country. Are you impressed yet? Nobody bakes better bagels than NYC and Brooklyn Bridge Bagels continues this tradition by having their bagels baked there and shipped frozen. They reheat the bagels in an oven and serve to you not FRESH. You can get the same tasting bagels in a local supermarket for less cost. I will drive the extra mileage and go the Bagel Experience where I can them make the bagel on-site. Also I waited there one day for 15 minutes with no other customers waiting and was ignored. Two young women walked in and the person behind the counter took them right away. They ignored me and I went to the Bagel Experience. Did I mention that the Bagel Experiece has great real fresh bagel."
