A quick google search of the word bagel reveals that one of America’s favorite rip-off foods –half the bread is missing, after all, just like the donut- has a controversial and convoluted history. It’s year of origin is unclear, people aren’t quite sure if it originated in Poland, Germany or elsewhere and, in 2009, The Atlantic ran an article titled “The Secret History of Bagels.”
No matter what it’s origins, one thing is clear: the bagel is here to stay. It tastes great with jelly, cream cheese and butter, and it’s become a staple of breakfast sandwiches everywhere. This leaves just two questions:
1. Where does the bagel go from here?
2. Where is the best place in Galloway to purchase said food product?
This week’s Readers’ Choice poll tackles that second question.
These are our choices. If you can think of a place we might have forgotten, let us know in the comments section.
At the Hop Diner
Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. Remember the Patch points system: the top three vote getters in the polls receive votes, i.e. 10 points for first place, 8 for second and 6 for third, and the three businesses with the best ratings in the Patch Places directory receive points in the same manner.
Please see the attached PDF for full details on the scoring system. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch. We will announce the winner on Friday.
