Although we live in cities with sensational culinary offerings, when it comes to bagels, we have some definite... holes. So when something comes along as rare and special (think Hope Diamond, think Halley's Comet, think finding free street parking in Uptown) as the St. Paul Bagelry, we must stand up and take note. Soft, chewy, warm bagels with a generous slathering of delectable homemade cream cheese are served by happy dough-slingers. Seating is plentiful, the decor simple. If you don't have time to stay and sit a while, you can grab some to go and impress your friends with a dozen decadent, dreamy breakfast carbs from an unexpected source. And sure, the St. Paul Bagelry is not technically in St. Paul, and we know it might be hard to make the trek to Roseville before 2 p.m. any day of the week, but in this instance, you will be rewarded handsomely.
