Hands down, Common Roots Cafe has the best bagels in the metro. No need for fancy dough full of herbs or chocolate or pumpkin puree, no need for special flavored cream cheeses... just pure, unadulterated, gluten goodness and cream cheese divinity. My favorite combination pictured: toasted poppyseed bagel with plain cream cheese. Mmmm.
(note: pretty much everything on the Common Roots menu is good.)
