When you think of the San Antonio culinary scene, you probably conjure images of barbecue, Tex-Mex, and other Southern delicacies. But have you ever thought about warm, delicious bagels? If not, it’s time to start because February 9th is National Bagel Day, and we have the ultimate guide to where to get the best bagels near our San Antonio apartments.

Distance From The Place at Oak Hills: 2.4 miles
What: You could not pick a better spot to celebrate National Bagel Day than Chicago Bagel & Deli. They boil and then bake their bagels to give them just the right texture and flavor. Go for a classic like plain, blueberry, everything, or sesame seed with cream cheese or jelly, or choose something a little more decadent like a chocolate chip, spicy Italian tomato, or maple French toast bagel. You also can order any of their tasty sandwiches on a bagel instead of bread, which sounds like the right choice to me!

What: Even though this bagel shop isn’t unique to San Antonio, it will delight your palate with some amazing options. You can enjoy a breakfast bagel sandwich at one of their many locations around town, or you can take a dozen home with you to share with your family.
