Bagels are a classic New York food and Bagel Bob’s provides visitors with New York bagels that are smothered in smear. Bagel Bob’s is located between Washington Square Park and Union Square, making it a great place for NYU students, professors, and visitors to grab a bagel, as well the bagel shop offers a discount for NYU students. The bagel shop is a small store with only a couple tables, and a table-top bar along the window. Bagel Bob’s offers a variety of different bagels and spreads and, although, Bagel Bob’s is mainly known for bagels, they also offer salads, sandwiches, wraps, smoked fish, and paninis. We typically visited once a week during the school year and each time found the bagels to be perfectly toasted and lathered in cream cheese, making it one of our favorite local shops. For anyone wanting a NYC bagel an is around Washington Square Park, we definitely recommend Bagel Bob’s.
Side Note: There is second location on the Upper East Side.
