America is in the midst of a bagel war.

Earlier this week, The New York Times published a story titled, “The Best Bagels are in California.” New Yorkers understandably lost their minds.

So while we quietly let those two states feud, we’re going to focus on another recently published story: Food & Wine‘s “The Best Bagels in America,” which happened to highlight a much-loved Massachusetts bagel shop.

The list included Bagelsaurus, a Cambridge destination that, pre-COVID, garnered long lines on weekends and slings truly excellent bagels. (The shop now offers pre-ordering with a designated pickup time.) Food & Wine‘s senior editor David Landsel described the shop’s bagels as “something that looks traditional, with the perfect crust and chew; inside, however, you’ll find one of the lightest bagels you may ever fall in love with. This is a bagel that will last on your counter for days.”


“Thank you @foodandwine for recognizing our little bagel shop along with so many other bagel powerhouses we love and admire,” Bagelsaurus wrote on Instagram in response to the article. “Much love to our loyal customers who’ve helped us survive 2020 and beyond — and the incredibly creative, hardworking staff that makes the dream work every damn day.”

Food & Wine showed love to five other shops in New England as well, including three Maine bagel havens: Forage in Lewiston, Rover Bagel in Biddeford, and Scratch Baking Co. in South Portland. Myer’s Bagel Bakery and Feldman’s Bagels, both in Burlington, Vermont, also made the list.
