I purchased my Little American Bread at one of Paris’s best regarded bagelries, “Bagels & Brownies.” (I did not order a brownie.) Here is the bag it came in, along side a bottle of Snapple. Snapple! The most appropriate drink to accompany a bagel, other than maybe coffee.
Ok, so what was the bagel like? It was like this:
I ordered a sesame bagel with lox and chive cream cheese. It is harder and harder to find chive cheese these days; you usually get scallion. The bagel had a nice exterior with lots of sesame seeds, even on the bottom. It was chewy and tasted right. The cream cheese and lox tasted as they should.
In short, this was a good bagel. You can get better in College Park or Highland Park or Providence, and much better in Brooklyn or Manhattan. But this was on par with most bagel chains and considerably better than a Dunkin’ Donuts bagel.
In conclusion, yes, it is now possible to find a decent bagel in Baguette City. If you have been away from home for a month, you just might want one.
