Dozen Baz Rainbow Bagels

NYC Bagels

What makes a New York bagel so special? Some people insist it’s the soft water that pumps through NYC pipes, others say it’s the tough exterior that makes them a little harder to bite into. Whatever it is, it’s working! Baz Bagel has delicious regular bagels, but who wants regular bagels? These are the World Famous Rainbow Bagels that you’ve no doubt seen on Instagram. Start your NYC feast in the morning with a colorful spin on a classic breakfast snack.

Dessert After Breakfast

Maybe dessert after breakfast isn’t traditional, but in New York, nothing is really traditional. Chocolate Babka from Breads Bakery are insanely flavorful and make for the perfect breakfast dessert. Each Rugelach is hand rolled one at a time which is something that few bakeries are willing to do. New York bakeries go above and beyond!
