The 10 Best Bagel Shops in Pennsylvania!

Though we’ve produced endless varieties of breakfast options, people have always enjoyed this carby classic: The bagel. Good cold or toasted, plain, schmeared, or piled high with toppings, this versatile vessel delights both young and old around the globe. Take a tour of Pennsylvania’s best bagels, from old-school to new-fangled, and enjoy breakfast as it should be: Filling, fresh, and delicious.  

1. Knead Bagels, Philadelphia, PA

You may know bagels, but unless you’re a regular, you don’t know Knead Bagels, a non-traditional outlet serving up seriously good product. Try one of their suggested pairings, like the heavenly lavender bagel with honey-vanilla cream cheese, or the fennel seed and sea salt bagel with roasted tomato cream cheese. 

2. Bagel Train, Yardley, PA

A little bagel shop that packs a much bigger punch, Bagel Train is a cash-only, eat-out establishment with quite a local following. You can’t go wrong with one of their egg sandwiches, or pick up a dozen and be your office’s hero for the day. 

3. Newtown Bagel Company, Newtown, PA

A family owned, no-nonsense bagel shop with a good variety of fresh product. Bagels are available gluten free, and be sure to order a fresh squeezed glass of orange juice to go with! 

4. Custom Bagels, Media, PA

For almost 20 years, Custom Bagels has offered up best-of-the-best bagels with a smile. Try a breakfast sandwich overflowing with down home goodness, or one of their hot lunch sammies served on a perfect, boiled-and-baked bagel.

5. Bagelicious, Inc, King of Prussia, PA

A mom and pop shop of the truest definition, Bagelicious is a throwback to when Sundays were slow and breakfast really was the most important meal of the day. For good prices, friendly service, and quality bagels, this King of Prussia gem is tough to beat. 

6. Philly Style Bagels, Philadelphia, PA

Bon Appétit Magazine rated this Fishtown location’s classic lox sandwich the “Best New Sandwich in America.” If this wasn’t high enough praise, the article went on to explain that any ingredients, so long as they were pressed between two halves of a Philly Style bagel, would be “life-changing.” Though they come strictly untoasted, and the menu is brief, Philly Style Bagels will satisfy both bagel connoisseurs and newbies alike. 

7. Johnny’s Bagels & Deli, Bethlehem, PA

Clearly Johnny’s is a New York City bagel joint under witness protection in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, because they serve up some of the best bagels outside the Big Apple. Order a knockout breakfast sandwich, or an equally satisfying omelet if you’re watching your carbs. 

8. Parker’s PGH, Pittsburgh, PA

For one of the best bagels in the ‘Burgh, check out Parker’s PGH. Try a breakfast sandwich on an everything bagel, or take a chance on a “lottery ticket” sandwich and let Parker’s pick the fillings for you. 

9. The Bagel Experience, Brodheadsville, PA

When compared to modern, fancy bagel shops that seem to be the rage, The Bagel Experience’s abbreviated menu may seem mundane at first glance. One bite will make you a believer, however, as the quality of both product and service at this Brodheadsville location are hard to beat. 

10. The Native Bagel, Wellsboro, PA

Wellsboro rolls, boils, and bakes their bagels fresh daily, and the result is nothing short of sublime. Try a lemon pepper bagel with plain cream cheese, or any of the outstanding bagel melts.
