MorningSide Bagels on Maumelle Boulevard offers fresh bagels made every day. You can choose from several flavors including: Apple Cinnamon, Asiago Cheese, Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Raisin, Cranberry, Everything, Garlic, Honey Oat, Onion, Plain, Poppy, Salt, Sesame, Spinach Parmesan, Seasonal, and Wheat. That is a long list of homemade bagels and I personally have not made a poor choice yet!
You can order cream cheese as a topping and once again can choose from a variety of flavors: Plain, Lite, Honey Almond, Strawberry, Chocolate, Jalapeno, Cheddar & Chives or Vegetable. In addition to cream cheese you can order other toppings such as turkey, egg, lox, and even a pizza bagel.
I used to live in Philadelphia and enjoy lox bagels; therefore, for my most recent visit I give it a try. Theirs comes with Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese, Red Onion & Capers on your choice of bagel. I order the plain bagel and it is super fresh. It is very spongy and has a great depth of flavor. I especially enjoy the crust as it is not too hard but is discernable from the internal dough. The salmon is okay, does not taste homemade, but the capers help add flavor to it and overall I enjoy the bagel.
