www.bagelsaurus.comBagelsaurus offers handcrafted bagels made from a recipe containing five simple ingredients, plus a mature sourdough culture, which requires 24 hours of fermentation to process. The result of the arduous fermentation process is a chewy and wonderfully delicious bagel. A unique specialty bagel and cream cheese combination, which is enjoyed by many at Bagelsaurus, is a sea salt bagel with honey-rosemary cream cheese. Other uncommon bagel flavor choices at this shop include black olive, cheddar garlic and seeded wheat, and of course there are the traditional plain, poppy, sesame, onion and cinnamon raisin.
