The Bagel Shop In Tennessee That’s So Good They Keep Selling Out
Finding a good bagel is one of life’s simple pleasures, and the folks up there in New York think they have it down pat. Sure, Brooklyn makes a pretty good bagel, but have you ever indulged in Tennessee? Proper Bagel opened a few years ago right in the heart of Middle Tennessee and we think these delicious circles of bread give that northern city a run for its money. But hey, what do we know? You need to try it for yourself!
Proper Bagel is located in a gorgeous old home right behind Belmont University. It's a popular spot for students and families alike, just a stone's throw from Hillsboro Village and the bustling 12 South area
Designed to emulate that ever-iconic New York bagel shop, you'll order at the counter with a gorgeous display of cream cheeses and schmear on display in the cold case.
Not a bagel fan? We don't quite understand that, but we'll give you grace. You can indulge in a variety of coffee-based beverages, teas, avocado toast, and breakfast sandwiches.
The space is decked out in white tile with black accents, streamlined with long, communal tables and a few spots out on the front patio.
If you're looking for the types of bagels offered, you'll find both seasonal and perennial flavors offered on the front board.
Every breakfast is made fresh to order and can be customized for your personal taste. Keep in mind that the line can get pretty crazy in the morning so you'll want to pitch up early!
Proper Bagel was met with hefty fanfare from the locals, and it was well-placed. This New York style bagel counter is just want Nashville needed, and we hope it's around for a long time.
You can visit for yourself at 2011 Belmont Boulevard in Nashville, Tennessee, but make sure to come early! You want to beat those crowds and snag a seat at this gorgeous eatery.
You can continue your exploration of Middle Tennessee with
this delicious pumpkin pie trail. Yum!
