Next up is Corner Bagel Bakery & Deli, situated at 715 E. Greenville St. With four stars out of 26 reviews on Yelp, the bakery, which offers bagels and more, has proven to be a local favorite.

On the menu, look for 17 varieties of bagels that customers can top with six spreads, including cream cheese, butter, peanut butter or honey and lox and cream cheese. Yelpers recommend the specialty bagels like the Iron Man that has egg whites, grilled chicken and provolone on an eight-grain bagel. In addition to bagels, there are grilled and cold sandwiches, wraps, soups and salads.

"If you live in the area and have not been to Corner Bagel, you are missing out," Yelper Flynn M. said. "These are some of the best handmade bagels in the state, piled high with homemade cream cheeses of all different flavors. If you're lucky, they'll have leftover bagels made into bagel chips (sweet or hot style) that you can take home."
