Long Island Bagel Shops
Our REALTORS® say there's no food quite like the classic Long Island bagel.

The bagel has long been one of the staple snacks around Long Island. You might be surprised at just how many ways there are to prepare a bagel and transform it into a complete meal. From delis to diners, everyone has their take on this mainstay. It shows up for breakfast, lunch, and just about all the time.

Today, we're drawing attention to this unsung hero of the food pyramid thanks to a little-known observation: July 26 is National Bagelfest Day. It's time to enjoy the bagel like never before, and no other place in America unlocks its full potential like Long Island.

Let's take a look at five favorite places Long Islanders love to go for a bagel:

  1. My Three Sons Bagel Cafe – 597 Willis Avenue, Williston Park, NY 11596
    Williston Park homes for sale are just a short hop from what many locals describe as the best bagel on Long Island. Soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside, and always hand-rolled, My Three Sons Bagel Cafe is a family-owned and operated business with a history dating to 2000. Homemade cream cheese and spreads complement the artisanal style.

  2. Bagel Plaza – 1704 Merrick Road, Merrick, NY 11566
    Want a mouth-watering treat not far from Merrick homes for sale? Bagel Plaza is here to help. Its friendly menu has plenty of gluten-free options, and all meals are kosher. There's plenty of cream cheese, lox, and salads too. Special sandwiches include hand-sliced nova, smoked tuna, and nova with a fried egg. Muffins, scones, cookies, and rolls are also on order.

  3. 209 Glen Cove Road, Carle Place, NY 11514
    J&J Bagel and Deli is the place to score the best bagels near Carle Place homes for sale. It's known for its clean, welcoming surroundings and plenty of organic options. In addition to the bagel specials, you'll find fresh wraps, cold hero sandwiches, and warm hero sandwiches. Of course, the bagel platter special is always available!

  4. Bagel Master – 43 Cold Spring Road, Syosset, NY 11791
    In the neighborhood of Syosset homes for sale, you've got plenty of bagel places to choose from, but it's Bagel Master that stands out from the pack. With a name like that, it's got a lot to live up to: The textures and tastes of pure bagel sophistication are on display here. It is backed by a full bakery, deli, and a fiendishly creative menu. You can't go wrong, but beware of parking!

  5. Boardwalk Bagel and Delicatessen – 105 Putnam Boulevard, Atlantic Beach, NY 11509
    Hot, fresh bagels await at Boardwalk Bagel and Delicatessen, only steps from prime Atlantic Beach homes for sale. Boardwalk exploded onto the scene as a new face in an area where there had been only one bagel shop, and it's since risen to prominence. In addition to scrumptious food, it distinguishes itself with the option to order online as late as 7:30 at night.

It's believed that the unique composition of water from Long Island's aquifer is the secret to its fantastic bagels. Whatever the case, it's just one of the many things that make our area special. With Laffey Real Estate on your side, you can experience it all from your Long Island dream home.
