toasty warm bagels at fairway





if you live in or "on" long island you can count on delicious bagels being one of the fringe benefits. I absolutely love the bagels at fairway. I usually go around 8 am & they always seem hot from the oven. like the apples I posted about here back in november, just looking at these beauties make you want to eat one while driving home. can you tell poppy seed is my favorite? where do you get your bagels?

Lily: this nice picture reminds me of the fragrant doughnuts I usually eat in the mountains, at Bardonecchia! :-)

Mmmmmmm NY bagels!

We do have a place that comes close. Nothing ever matches them, but close.

When I used to drive up to L.Il to my daughter's, I would always stop for bagels on the way, Also made a stop in Wantagh for a lemon ring cake at Gerst's Bakery on Merrick Rd.

Living in SE PA, we had a bagel store... no way, no comparison at all to NY Bagels. The difference (I am told) is the altitude and the effect it has on the baking. Others say it is water. This "difference" seems to be in all the baked goods or perhaps, I've lost some of my taste for sweets.

A few months ago, I was in a small grocery in NJ and they had bialy's. It was my first one since I left LI - it tasted so very, very good. While at a friend's, I made mention of it and they asked - what is a bialy?

I still dream of the bialy with cream cheese and lox from the Northport Deli.

ah, is there a Fairway in LI, too?
we adore this place too, as you know. They have everything you could possibly need and aren't pretentious

Nice pic. They do seem warm.

The best bagels by far have to be the bagels we get in Stewart Manor (forgot the name since we only call it Stewart Manor bagels). My favorite type of bagel has to be egg, but only if the bagel shop makes it right. The Adelphi deli also makes something called a flagel, which is a flattened bagel. -Jenna

These look mouthwateringly good. I can't get hold of bagels but I could murder a croissant after seeing your picture..

You've touched a sore spot with me. Why is the word *on* in quotes? We live ON Long Island not in it.

Just like folks live on Cape Cod or live on Martha's Vineyard or live on Shelter Island, or on Gilligans's Island, or on Block Island....

Nobody lives in Long Island. Using the word *in* seems to be an error made by out of towners writing classified ads to run here, or by people with bad grammar.

Not that you have bad grammar, I just don't want to see this trend gain momentum.

I prefer plain bagel but I do ADORE lemon poppy seed muffins.

Both go so well with a nice cup of coffee, Sunday papers and nothing to do for the rest of the day.

By a huge coincidence I'm reading your blog while eating a breakfast bagel! And one made by the 'New York Bagel Co'. However, by the look of your bagels, and having checked where mine was made, I'm sure that a British bagel made on Swinton Meadows Industrial Estate, Rotherham, England, is not a patch on the real thing. (Rotherham is in the industrial heartland of England - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotherham)
