“These bagels are AWESOME!” I say this as I’m stuffing my face. Bagel Factory is a quiet little shop sitting in a small strip mall in the south side of Olive. The area is dark but then you see a warm glow come into view....More

These are the real deal. None of the fancy-schmantzy fake flavors here, just the shine and correct texture of the properly made bagel as found in NYC. Go early in the day.
