The Bagel Nook

I’m not really a bagel person. I like it but it’s just not my go-to breakfast item. To be honest, there are a handful of items on a breakfast menu that I would order first before settling into a bagel (avocado toast, eggs benedict, sausage-egg-and-cheese on a kaiser roll, french toast with a side of extra crispy bacon, THE LIST IS ENDLESS!)

So when I found myself hungry somewhere deep in New Jersey with Brian, I found us The Bagel Nook. I remember putting it in my list of food places to try because of their Flaming HotĀ Cheeto bagels. (yes, you read that correctly)

Obviously, I had to try it. With Cool Ranch cream cheese. Brian got the Cinnamon Toast Crunch bagel with Crumb Cake cream cheese. Click through for more photos!

I got my bagel toasted. Look at it in all its crunchy, chewy, savory glory! I have to admit that they smear a little too much cream cheese for my taste (all bagel smears do this) but nothing a little scraping action can’t handle.

Afterwards, we drove back to Manhattan but stopped by the Bowery Wall to look at the new mural. Gone was Logan Hicks’ stenciled madness, it was now replaced by Pichi & Avo’s pastiche of renaissance & contemporary motifs. If you’re in the area, I recommend that you pay it a visit because it won’t be there for long.
