Remember the time when Beyonce's hit Single Ladies came out & she made it pretty clear that "if you like it you shoulda put a ring on it", I am pretty sure she was talking about bagels even then because what fun are diamonds against a crispy, chewy freshly baked bread? Okay, this might be a bit of a stretch, but... ladies & gentlemen, wouldn't you love someone more if they get you food instead of fancy things? And what could be better than some of those fresh-outta-oven Bagels with some cream cheese on a lazy Sunday afternoon or for that matter.. any other day. Drawing a blank here, aren't you?
Furthermore, if you've been residing in Pune for long, one fact that befits the situation is... there's a lot of variety when it comes to food. And that remains valid for Bagels as well. From Bagel sandwiches to Nutella ones and more, you'd find an abundance of sweet & savoury options even if it's just bagels.
That being said, I think you guys are ready for a brief round-up of the places where you can locate the best bagels in the city.

Pretty setting with good food is the apt vibe of Tea Villa Cafe, Viman Nagar. They serve two kinds of unconventional but mouth-watering bagels; one with Tomato Basil Cheese and the other with Exotic Veggies & Pesto Sauce. Both immensely yummy and popular amongst Punekars. Next time you're there extend the fun with their Hot Flavoured Coffee options because they're even better together.

Fresh homemade Bagel sandwiches accompanied by their Chef's special dip is all the comfort food you need in 2020. Trust me when I say, they've got every bagel on the table. From the Classic Cream Cheese to Mushroom & Cheddar, Cheese Chilli Nutella (whaaaa...?) to Lamb Kheema and so many more. There aren't enough people in Pune than.. there are bagels at Butter Brews Bistro and that too at very affordable prices. They even have outdoor seating which BTW is the perfect spot as any to hang out especially during cold monsoon evening.

Just as sophisticated as the name suggests, this place is quite an upscale with a limited menu that fortunately has bagels stacked in it. On the sweet side, there are Nutella, Banana, Ice-Cream, etc. Bagels to pick from while on the piquant side there are Fried eggs bagel, Veg patty bagel, Salmon bagel and more. I know you're drooling already but don't worry... Frenzy Gourmet is open 24 hours, so you can get your bagel any time of the day...or night you want.

Home to a wide range of bagels sandwiches, Pune Sandwich Company By Gourmet Men is a great place to indulge in delicious renditions of already tempting bagels in the most scrumptious way possible. Be it their BLT Bagel (With streaky bacon, veggies, cream cheese & Chef's special spice sauce) or 3 Cheese Melt In Your Mouth Bagel (That has mozzarella, cheddar and cream cheese) or more, the generous filling is each Bagel Sandwich is a testimony to its high standard and bespoke flavours. And when all of this is served with love and way less money, the experience becomes considerably delightful.
In addition to this, the cafe is open till 3 AM but currently, they aren't open for dine-in but the delivery services are on a full swing. So guys, order! order!... now.

Hyatt Regency is THE place to be when you expect blow-my-mind, tears-in-my-eyes kinda experience with respect to bakery items. While their menu is quite limited but the taste and the flavour of their yummy bagels are nearly infinite. If you're looking for a fancier place that also serves bagels, this is where you go.
Now that you are aware of the places, take your BAE-gal partner with you and enjoy even for us.
