Thankful for Bagels in Greenpoint

POST #    2316

There are many things that I'm thankful for this year. I won't bore you with them here, but this is one of them. The new bagel store that opened up in Greenpoint. It opened its doors about a week and a half ago and I had my first bagel there yesterday. It's apparently the Baker's Dozen Bagels' second location (the first in Kew Gardens). Not only do they have a full assortment of bagels and spreads for the bagels, but they also have a heathy deli selection. There's a list of sandwiches and panini (31 in all). The bagel is good, but I think it needs a little work. They certainly weren't as good as Joe's Bagels, but I think they were better thank Peter Pan Bakery's bagels.

My biggest problem with the store - they think Greenpoint is two words.

It's located on Manhattan Ave. between Meserole and Calyer (closer to Meserole).

Greenpoint used to be two words.

I'd take a donut from that Polish bakery on Manhattan between Norman and Nassau over a substandard bagel any day of the week.

As ninly said, "Green Point" is old timey - look at the Green Point Savings Bank, for instance. Of course Greenpoint hasn't been Green Point in 125 years or so.

i can't understand their bizarre counter configuration. Why must they be 1 foot taller than us? Why is the register crammed into one corner? Why is there so much queueing space?

The great thing about america is that everyone is allowed to express their own beliefs and opinions. That being said only a person who has little or no knowledge as well as a deficient palate would think the product at Bakers Dozen was average. It is one of the best bagels in the city. In addition if anyone bothered to look the original location has been voted one of the best bagels consistently in queens. Recipe is probably the same. Go and try again.

Their bagel prices are fine.

Their drink prices are outrageous.

So get a bagel there and a drink at the God Bless.
