What’s more Brooklyn than a bagel? Well, did you know that not all bagels are made on the premises? Shocking but true, more than a few bagel merchants in this borough try to sell you bagels that are shipped in. Fortunately, that’s not the case at excellent shops like the Bagel Villa located at 7221 5th Avenue.

In addition to deliciously diverse dishes like Mama Lucia’s lasagna, backed ziti and stuffed shells, the Bagel Villa bakes all of its old fashioned hand rolled bagels right on the premises. You could start out with a big, crusty bagel, but you’ll probably want to move on to the Bagel Villa’s fine selection of gourmet fish, Greek specialties, side orders and desserts. The place even offers free delivery.

You can reach the Bagel Villa at 718-745-1175.
