Where to Find the Best Bagels in Las Vegas
Eater Las Vegas
Here’s where to find the best bagels and schmear across Las Vegas and Henderson.
The perfect bagel boasts a crispy, crusty exterior, a fluffy but chewy middle, and subtle flavor just salty enough to pair with a heaping scoop of cream cheese. Look to the great bagels found on the East Coast, of which their purveyors conduct a “knock test” — rapping their knuckles over the bagels’ hard crust and then theatrically ripping it open, revealing a steaming and slightly doughy texture.
For a truly life-affirming bagel, you’ll have to venture to the other side of the country. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find a passable — or even very good — bagel in Southern Nevada. The below bakeries make bagels with chewy centers, dark crust, and robust selections of cream cheese, smoked fish, and salty capers.
For all things round bread, this bagel spot also houses a Pinkbox Doughnuts inside. Located near the Las Vegas Convention Center, this behemoth of a breakfast restaurant can put together big shareable trays of bagels and spread, for enjoying sesame, salted pretzel, and pumpernickel bagels, plus bialys.
