They're often confused as doughnuts by the unknowing, but bagel lovers out there know that they're one of the best baked goods around. So where in Sydney can you find a great bagel? We're looking for Sydney's best bagels, from freshly baked bagels to take home and fill yourself, to bagel bars that have all of the best toppings. We're hoping you've got plenty of experience tasting Sydney's best bagels, so go ahead and tell us where we can find them.

Bagel House is a good place to start. They have a store in Rozelle, and two in the CBD, and you'll even find they have a stall at three different markets. So what makes their bagels so good? Well, they have fresh and tasty bagels filled with some great combinations. Try starting early with something sweet with a cinnamon and raisin bagel with ricotta cheese, slices of banana, honey, and chopped walnuts. Or there is the classic Reuben bagel with pastrami, swiss cheese, pickles, sauerkraut, and dijon mustard. With a filling for everyone, you're sure to like something here.

Another place is the Great Bagel & Coffee Company. They also have a range of bagels with fillings from salmon and cream cheese, to ones filled with marinated vegetables, or tasty meat. They have stores in both Macquarie Shopping Centre and Castle Towers Shopping Centre. The Great Bagel & Coffee Company can also cater your next function or event, who knew a work do could be so tasty.

It doesn't have to be pre-filled to be a great bagel. Glick's sell a huge range of kosher bagels, with so many different flavours. From wholemeal, poppy seed, sweet, and more. You can eat them plain, or take them home and design your own bagel creation. Wellington Cake Shop in Bondi is another popular place. They may not have a website, but a quick online search will bring up plenty of recommendations for their bagels. They could easily be the best, but is filling a bagel yourself just too much effort?

So will you head to any of these when you need your next bagel hit? Or do you have somewhere else that does them even better? Let us know what you think about Sydney's current bagel situation, and where you think we can find Sydney's best.

Hi guys. I'll leave it up to your judgement, but I'm launching what I think is the first truly authentic NY bagel bakery in Sydney - maybe even Australia. For the next four Sundays we'll be popping up at Darlie Laundromatic in Darlinghurst from 10am-2pm. They're hand-rolled, properly boiled, use organic flour and undergo a long, slow fermentation that creates their beautiful flavour. Come check it out and let me know what you think.
