The Hungry Post
What started as a simple pop-up with Instagram-worthy treats, turned into a powerful movement of bagel yumminess. El Bagel is one of Miami’s favorite bagel connoisseurs at the moment, fleshing out towering bagel sandwiches and other great creations. Their brick and mortar spot has been highly anticipated for some time now, but soon they’ll be opening in MiMo for a permanent home. For now, enjoy them at places like Box Elder, popping up every weekend.
This is a local’s only, hidden gem that only the true Grove-ites know. Coral Bagels has been around for decades, serving authentic American meals that hit the spot every time. Breakfast might be their busiest time of day, which makes sense because their bagel options are pretty much endless. You can’t go wrong with any combination at this family-run establishment.
If you’re talking about authentic New York-style grub, it needs to be a no frills kind of spot that you can be in and out and filled up in no time. Nothing should distract you from what you really came for: the food. Holy Bagels & Pizzeria is that kind of joint that feels straight off the streets of The Big Apple. They’re really only bustling during the day, and like a true NYC establishment, their menu has pretty much everything you need.
The big apple may be a few miles away from our sunny city but, if you’re looking for that authentic New York style bagel, then this is your place. Bagel Bar has all sorts of bagels and spreads for you to choose from, and their breakfast is incredible. With a true diner feel, this spot is the best for your comfort food pick-me-ups. From fresh omelettes and melting french toast, to endless choices of bagels, the Bagel Bar provides a solid location for any foodie.
Light and easy bites are the ways of this recently opened bagel locale in the hipness that is Wynwood. Offering breakfast and brunch from morning to night is a convenience that this tasty new bagelry brings. Smoked salmon, egg salad and stuffed bagels are some of the items off the menu that may have you swinging by. At night this spot turns into a speakeasy, which is sure to make you stay while you fill up with some delicious eats.
