Bodacious Bagels

Stone Ridge

The bagels here are not just bodacious — they’re audacious, so much so that a die-hard New Yorker would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between one of these not-too-doughy beauties and a Manhattan-made bagel. No wonder this breakfast/lunch spot sees a regular steady stream of locals and weekenders from the crack of dawn until the afternoon. Owners Debra and David Dor have created a homey oasis here, decorated with old-fashioned wainscoting and copper tins, and with seating for 16 in a separate dining nook. But it’s the warm, fresh, delicious bagels that draw ’em in — and keep ’em coming back. The prices aren’t bad, either (95 cents each, $4.95 a half-dozen, and $9.40 a dozen (which means 14 here). Enjoy with flavored cream cheeses (olive, raisin walnut, jalapeño, veggie, garden herb, scallions, lox) at $3.05 per bagel. You can also get an egg on a bagel ($2.15) or a lox sandwich with onion, lettuce, tomato, and capers ($6.99). Flagels ($1.05) are flatter and more suited to sandwiches, of which there are many, including all the deli classics like roast beef and turkey. Look for other specialties too: Israeli-born David’s homemade knishes ($3.90), falafel platter ($8.95), and seasonal pastries, such as hamantaschen (triangular shaped pastries filled with poppy seeds, prunes, apricots, and other fruit preserves) for Purim, bring an authentic taste of the Middle East to Ulster County. 845-687-0472
