Those who decry the continued growth of the bagel (experts contend it has doubled in size over the years) may balk at Ess-a-Bagel's gargantuan interpretation of the delicacy. But it's hard to argue that its crispy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside, honey-sweetened carbs are anything but delicious. Plus, a bigger bagel means more room for the similarly monumental (and mouthwatering) selection of spreads, fish and other essential accessories.
