Readers' Choice: Vote for the Best Bagel

Let us know who has the best bagel in Plainview and Syosset so we can put it to a vote and find out which is the Readers’ Choice 2012 winner.

Where can you find the best bagel in Syosset and Plainview?

Bagels are as diverse as the stars and there are nearly as many ways to serve them. That's why Long Islanders have an endless appetite for them. Seeded or plain? Toasted or slathered in cream cheese? 

Patch is relaunching its Readers’ Choice program and we’re asking you, your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and anyone else who knows the about our area to nominate the best spots.

The nomination period ran through July 9.

Now it’s time to vote. Cast your vote by Aug. 17 and help us decide who's best. Whichever business gets the most votes will be named our Readers' Choice winner.

Thanks in advance for your participation!

Bagelmaster bagel with a princess salad is the best lunch ever :)

I agree with the quality of the list..Super Market bagels such as fairway certainly don't compare to a TRUE Bagel place such as Bagel Master- which not only has the best bagels, but the best appetizing as well. Any New Yorker or true bagel person would know that great appetizing and schmear are key accompaniments to a great bagel :) In addition, service is an absolute KEY point to any food or retail establishment. More places should take pride in that area.. it makes a HUGE difference.

Bagel Master not only supplies the best bagels around they are a hands on family owned business. You can always catch Vadim behind the counter making sure everything in the store is just perfect. We love Bagel Master

Bagel Master in Syosset!!

Bagel Master In Syosset has the best bagels. Gabby's charges twice the price and service is slow and quite unfriendly

Gold and Meyers in Plsinview. None better!!!
Melissa July 23, 2012 at 10:57 PM
Funny that so many bagel store employees commented on the poll!:) I like soft bagels that aren't crispy or burnt so my favorite is Gold and Meyers!!!!

Melissa is on the money! Every single employee who ever worked at Bagel Master must have responded to this poll in support of their employer as anyone who lives in the Syosset area & truly has working tastebuds knows that all this Bagel Master support is bogus. They are just not that good! I don't believe that the majority of BM supporters on this survey are being objective and should recuse themselves from voting in this poll! DrSteve

Hey, the best bagel in Syosset is the one you enjoy the most. End of discussion. No need to cast a cloud over any business that's struggling to survive in this economy.
SamanthaJean July 24, 2012 at 01:29 AM
What makes you believe that the people who voted and commented on this are employees of Bagel Master? Did you ever consider the fact that perhaps Bagel Master is greatly involved in the community and social media and that's why they have received the feedback that they have? And the reason why Bagel Boss, Gabby's and all of the other's are not on this list is because they're not as active?? Quite frankly I find it a bit sad that Bagel Boss, which is a franchise, is not even on this list.

DrSteve...I am the manager of Bagel Master, and take great pride in what I do. I work very hard to maintain a high standard of food and service in this community, as well as giving back and being involved in the community. I have sat back for quite some time and observed you not only take jabs at myself and my business but many other businesses around. You seem to have an opinion for everyone and everything, which is totally fine until you start making personal remarks that have no factual basis. Your opinion is just that yours and I don't believe everyone needs to read comments about your personal problems/dislikes for certain people/businesses. We have worked very hard for a very long time to build a strong and loyal customer base, one that has lasted more than 20 years. For you to come here and personally try to insult us is fine because it only makes you like the immature child that you are. You hide behind a keyboard and a computer and abuse the freedoms of the internet to try and use them to ruin businesses. Thank goodness people have brains and are able to decide for themselves where they like to shop and visit. As stated by others, you made your opinion known you have voted...now grow up!

Bagel Master is by far the best bagels in the world!!!! I mean that!!! Master of Flagels!!!
Sean L July 24, 2012 at 02:30 AM
In fairness Vadim, don't you think you should have mentioned you were the owner of bagel master when you voted for it on the 26th? In the interest of full disclosure, now would be a good time to confirm if any of the other commenters are or have been employees as well....
Vadim Nayman July 24, 2012 at 02:45 AM
I have never denied it, however not a single person that has commented and/or voted other than myself is a past/current employee

Town Bagel is the best...
Kenny Chan July 24, 2012 at 02:21 PM
I enjoy their breakfast as well as their salads... Bagel Master it is! It's also an easy location for me to drive right from my house.
Papa Tom July 24, 2012 at 09:30 PM
I've got it! Instead of all this childish nonsense, why don't we turn this into something fun? How about any bagel bakery that wants to participate steps forward and approaches the Syosset Chamber of Commerce about having a Best Bagel Contest at the upcoming Syosset Street Fair?

Trader Joe's in Plainview is clearly the best bagels i have ever tasted. That includes all of New York City.
James McBeth August 06, 2012 at 08:09 PM
Trader Joe's Has the best best bagel and at the best price, Where else can you get 3 bagels for 1.99 in this town? I will not buy bagels anywhere else since Trader Joe has them fresh daily!
Michael August 07, 2012 at 05:57 PM
The best bagels on Long Island are at Trader Joe's, my wife travels to Plainview to buy them.
Kate August 08, 2012 at 02:47 PM
