Similarly, Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company has no actual locations in Brooklyn. Chalk it up to an endearing idiosyncrasy of the bagel world!
Names aside, let’s focus on what makes Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company a top tier bagel shop:
The bagels here are GIANT and fluffy. In fact, BB&CC may have the biggest bagels in the city. Just look at the length and bagel-to-hand ratio on this specimen:
The bagels are always fresh with double-sided toppings. They are generous with the cream cheese, although the cream-cheese-to-bagel ratio can be a little light due to the sheer size of the bagels. Despite their super-sized nature, the bagels are still very flavorful.
One thing that distinguishes BB&CC is their scale. There are 5 shops, spread from Astoria to Chelsea. No other top-tier shop has that kind of scale. There is usually an inverse correlation between size of an operation and quality of product. Yet somehow, BB&CC manages to maintain high quality standards across all 5 shops. Any one of the 5 are worth checking out.
Overall, the enormous and delicious bagels make Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company a must-visit, and a contender for best bagel in NYC.
