When we moved to north Ann Arbor, I had a hard time finding a bagel shop to love. I know, they are full of carbs and have almost nothing nutritionally redeeming, but I love them anyway, especially when I am pregnant. One day on the other side of town, we stopped into Barry’s Bagels in the Westgate shopping center and I was in love again.

They create a variety of flavored bagels that are a touch crispy but mostly chewy goodness and the cream cheese puts them over the top. We are also big fans of their bagel sandwiches and their soups always looked delicious. It was a hot spot on that side of town as evidenced by the healthy crowds almost any time of day. The service is quick though and you can eat in or get your order to go.

Our favorite Bagels (99 cents each or 14 bagels for $9.99): Cranberry, Blueberry, Tomato Herb, Spinach Feta, Vanilla Cinnamon (#1), Chocolate Chip.

Our favorite Cream Cheese: Light Veggie, Honey and Brown Sugar, Strawberry, Scallion, Garlic and Herb.

Other items to try: Deli Sandwiches, Eggels (egg sandwiches), Chili, Soup…basically anything on the menu.

Hours. Monday-Friday 7am-7pm, Saturday 7am-5pm, Sunday 7am-3pm.
