There are some things that just make your mornings better—coffee, donuts, maybe even a workout or meditating—but there truly is nothing better than a fresh, warm bagel to start your day off right. Whether you’re a cream cheese spreader, butter lover or maybe even something fancier (bacon, egg and cheese anyone?) Philly has a lot of mouthwatering options for the delicious carb-filled holiday. Here is where to celebrate National Bagel Day 2020 in the City of Brotherly Love.
Where to celebrate National Bagel Day 2020 in Philadelphia
Spread is known around the city for its enticing Montreal-style bagels, which are very hard to resist when you catch a whiff of their offerings while walking by any of their stores. Spread’s bagels are all boiled in honey water and then baked in small batches in a wood-fired oven making them unique in flavor. Spread offers an abundant amount of menu options including bagels with an assortment of cream cheeses (think roasted garlic veggie, peanut butter crème and jam, smoked nova salmon, seasonal sweet berry and more), an interesting variety of breakfast sandwiches, and even a few deluxe lunch options (think tuna melts, chicken cheesesteaks and grilled cheeses on bagels.) The menu options vary depending on store locations in Rittenhouse, West Philly, Bryn Mawr and at their dual storefront on the Schuylkill River with Workhorse Brewing Company.
