Kosher Bagel Supreme, Springfield

I must confess, every Sunday, and sometimes during the week, I’ll find myself at Kosher Bagel Supreme in Springfield. I find their Bagels are truly special.

Baked on the premises, the Bagels baked at Bagel Supreme in Springfield, get my vote for Best Bagels in Union County. Arriving warm, crisp, and delicious, visitors have the choice of choosing plain, salted, onion, poppy seed, and an “Everything” Bagel. 
Why not treat the family to something extra special. Purchase a dozen bagels. Prepare a couple of simple salads featuring Tuna fish, Egg Salad, and Shrimp Salad. Garnish with lettuce, tomato, and sliced onion.  Serve the bagels with cream cheese, and or butter. Before serving, slice each bagel. For those that were not consumed at dinner, carefully, wrap each bagel and  place it in the freezer. You’ll find you’ll have enough to serve the family, as well as treat friends who stop by.

As another thought, don’t leave Bagel Supreme without an order of their especially delicious Nova Scotia Lox, and a pound of their fabulous, fresh, cream cheese. 
Please remember, Bagel Supreme continually bakes Bagels throughout the day. They are always a welcome treat for breakfast, lunch, and even dinner. 

Consider serving Bagels at your next at-home gathering. Know that they arrive crispy and delicious and come in many varieties. Try them plain, with salt, poppy seeds, or onions. Freshly baked Bagels from Bagel Supreme arrive straight from the oven and taste crispy and delicious. Try them plain, with salt, poppy seeds, or onions, Freshly baked bagels are delicious with Nova Scotia Lox, Scallions, Tuna Fish, Egg Salad, Shrimp Salad or as an accompaniment to your favorite breakfast, lunch or dinner. 
Having a party, or planning a special celebration? Why not talk to the staff at Bagel Supreme. Decide what you are going to serve, and have the Staff prepare platters of gorgeous smoked fish, assorted cheeses, fresh bagels, and a gaggle of fresh vegetables.  All you’ll have to do is set a full pot of fresh coffee on the stove, or plug-in your electric coffee pot and ENJOY!
