Some people "ding" Life's A Bagel for its cash only, cash only policy, and strip mall location. But disregard that, get there early, get a baker's dozen of egg, salt, everything, and whatever you like, a container off homemade Miami (contains bits of smoke salmon, scallions, horseradish, Yum!) or other delicious regular or lite version of cream cheese and you're...

They have the biggest bagels I've ever seen. Also, they are always so fresh and soft. Hands down the most delicious bagel around.

I mean it. Best bagels ever!! The line is always out the door but it is SO worth it! The line moves fast too! Fresh and enormous amazing bagels! My favorite are the egg and everything bagels. And the home made cream cheese is fantastic too. If you haven't had life's a bagel you are missing out!!!
