A good bakery which specializes in bagels. A good selection of bagels, including whole wheat selections. Bagel sandwiches and coffee are available. Also a nice variety of breads and cakes.

Kupel's is a classic. The bagels are great and they make wonderful sandwiches. In addition, they have a wonderful selection of Kosher pastries and other sweets. The chocolate Danish is my favorite.

I ended up making a trip into Brookline specifically to visit Kupel's (after missing them over Passover), and it was well worth the wait. Great freshly made bagel, probably the best loaf of pumpernickel I've ever had, and wonderfully sweet and savory hamentashen. I would...More
