Spread Bagelry

"Judging by the line out the door on Saturday and Sunday mornings, we’re now a city of converts," raved Philadelphia Magazine when it named Spread Bagelry 2012's spot for the city's Best Bagels. "We want our bagels smaller, denser, sweeter. We want them Montreal-style." Boiled in honey-sweetened water, Montreal-style bagels bake in massive, wood-fired ovens that give them a characteristic, flame-dappled appearance and result in a bagel that's denser, sweeter, and crunchier than its New York–style counterpart.

Spread—the brainchild of veteran Philly chef Mark Cosgrove and marketing professional Larry Rosenblum—recreates the ambiance and expertise of a Quebec bagel vendor. Inside the charming wood-floored space, a custom-built, 20,000-pound wood-fired oven blazes Spread's beloved bagels. Doughy treats are complemented by a full menu of seasonal spreads, tender brisket, and smoked fish, sourced from a century-old outfit in Coney Island.
