Bergen Bagels is a popular bagel shop in Brooklyn. It's so popular, that shops around the area claim that they sell Bergen Bagels. People line up for this fresh tasting bagels, especially on weekends.
This is Bergen Bagels in Brooklyn, my girlfriend took me here when i said i wanted some proper new york food. Its awesome. The guys behind the counter had trouble understanding my accent (its English, no lisp) but once we got over that barrier i had a smoked salmon and cream cheese pumpernikel bagel. A party was promptly had in my mouth. I had never had pumpernikel before and it was the best i had had.
All the bagels are made on the premises as well as the spreads and other stuff so its bound to be fresh made on the day, normally there are lines out the door on the weekends. This place is so popular that you can see other shops in the area proudly claiming that they sell Bergen Bagels, one of these shops is marble castle or something like that. Its an ice cream shop and it is pretty good too.
A word of warning though, my girlfriend got a sandwich from there and it was a bit lifeless so if you go there stick to the bagels.
