Each week, one Ann Arbor staple menu item becomes a
battlefield as Daily Arts editors butt heads over
which restaurant makes it best.
PLAIN BAGEL WITH CREAM CHEESE
777 North University Avenue
Plain bagels can be boring, but Panera's
version of this food item is delicious. The
bagel is perfectly toasted so that it's crisp
on the outside but chewy on the inside.
The cream cheese is mercifully spread-
able and tasty. All the awkwardness that's
usually associated with a normal slab of
cold cream cheese is nowhere to be found
709 North University Avenue
With a lightly crispy outside to comple-
ment the thick and soft interior, Brueg-
ger's gets it right with its homemade
bagels. Throw in some signature cream
cheese, with just the right balance of
savory and sweet, and this becomes
a nicely satisfying breakfast or filling
snack. It's cheap, too, ringing in at only
3711 Plaza Drive
Zingerman's doesn't serve plain bagels.
Zingerman's Bakehouse makes a 1610 tra-
ditional bagel which, despite its crisp crust
and chewy innards, is bland. What sets this
classic apart is the cream cheese. Made by
hand at Zingerman's Creamery, the fluffy
spread, with its light milky flavor, adds
enough zest to the plainest of plain bagels to
make it an ideal part of any Sunday brunch.
530 South State Street
From your mouth's perspective, the
bagel is fine. It's dense and chewy with a
nice crust. But our eyes sense something
is wrong - there is no hole in the center!
Even if we could overlook this amateur
mistake, we can't forgive the smattering
of nothing-special cream cheese, which is
especially insulting when the pair tallies
up to $1.99.
