Whenever I go visit my parents, I get really excited when my mom goes out for bagels at Time for a Bagel. It's a cute, family run stop in the suburbs with great bagel-making skills! The selection is plentiful and they have a variety of cream cheeses, spreads or a deli if you want a sandwich on a bagel. They're always have the right softness and the outside is never too hard or burned. My favorite is sesame because the seeds actually smell and taste toasted. This little shop know what they're doing when it come to bagels.
