Slinging out stuffed New York bagels at a rate of knots is Little Bagel Co on the triangle. A mecca for students and suits alike, this is the kind of lunch that could turn a bad day around in a few mouthfuls, a lunch that can stare down an afternoon of back-to-back meetings or lectures with confidence. You’ll get so lost in it that you’ll walk into a lamppost as you teeter down Park Street, but you won’t regret it.
The bagels themselves are the star of the show here, refreshingly wonky, chewy enough to make your jaw ache and beautifully bronzed. There are ten combinations on the menu (plus rotating specials), which means you’ll want to go back another nine times at least. Bristol’s burgeoning population of vegans are thoughtfully catered to with vegan smoked salmon, vegan reubens and more.
