If you've only had bagels from the grocery store freezer, you don't know what you've been missing! Goldberg's started in New York in the 1900's, with a secret Polish recipe. They sell many varieties – sweet and savory – though some flavors run out by lunchtime. Flavors include Plain, Salt, Poppy Seed, Garlic, Sesame Seed, Onion, Blueberry, Marble Rye, Egg, Chocolate Chip, Everything, Pumpernickel, Cinnamon Raisin, Black Russian, Sun‑Dried Tomato, Jalapeno, Everything Stick, Oat Bran, Multi Grain, Honey Whole Wheat, Whole Wheat Everything.
This is also a place to get tasty, but hard to find bialys. Those are flat, indented yeast cakes often topped with toasted onions.
Of course, it's great to have something on your bagel! There are several cream cheese spreads, lox and fish salads.Goldberg's has a few sweet baked goods, too, including Rugelach – tender tri-cornered pastry with filling like raisin – and New York pastries.
- Bakeries: "Holding to the tenants of the Old Testament, they're closed on Saturday – the Sabbath."
- Best for Bakeries Because: Not every city with a significant Jewish population has a Kosher restaurant; Baltimore's lucky to have a good one.
