Grab The Cream Cheese Because These 3 Maine Bakeries Just Earned The Award For Best Bagels In America

When people think of Maine food they often imagine lobster with lots of melted butter and maybe a roll on the side. There are quite a few other things we’re great at, too. Every tried brown bread baked in a can? Or how about a whoopie pie? These are all quintessentially Maine foods that we love. But bagels? Those are usually left to the experts in places like New York. Until now, that is! Food & Wine Magazine recently named their winners for best bagels in American and three local Maine spots made the list!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
