I admit that the overall look of Beigel Bake is far from enticing: the grubby interior was tackily decorated and a jumbled mass of bagels assaulted the eye. Along with plain bagels, they also sell bagels with assorted fillings, the bagels pre-stuffed and stacked in the most unattractive of ways.
Still, despite my trepidation, the baked goods smelled heavenly. Liebling ordered a half-dozen for the paltry sum of 1.50 GBP (approx $2.20 USD), and on our walk back home, I devoured one to my utter surprise. After having eaten dinner not even 30 minutes before, I was far from hungry, but the bagel was so spongy and tasty that I couldn’t help myself. The next morning, I found myself looking forward to having another bagel for breakfast. Even 12 hours later, it still tasted fresh.
The moral of the story: Don’t judge a book by its cover! I know where I’ll be going for my next bagel fix.
