G T Bagel Factory -- South Burlington, Vermont
Until I moved to Essex Junction and started frequenting Bagel Market on Susie Wilson Road (see my review), the G T Bagel Factory was my go-to bagel shop in town. A great selection of bagels from plain to chocolate chip to asiago to mexican. G T isn't the easiest place to find tucked between two gas stations off Williston Road, but if you can get through the maze around White Street in South Burlington you'll be glad you did. G T offers eat-in or take-away, I won't say that the shop itself offers much in the way of ambiance. It's nothing like what you would find at a coffee house, it's more utilitarian -- comfortable, not accommodating for a business meeting, but fine to meet a friend for a bagel and coffee. Two bagels with plain cream cheese will cost you less than $5. They also make bagel sandwiches of all kinds and offer several varieties of flavored cream cheese and other spreads like honey or peanut butter. Coffee and juices are available as well. If you're staying in one of the hotels/motels off Williston Road and you want a change of pace check out G T Bagel Market.
