#24: Studebagel's

Full Disclosure: I have a part-time job here.  That however is not going to prevent me from writing about South Bend's greatest (only?) bagel shop.  Located conveniently close to campus for those post-football Sunday mornings, this local favorite is open every day from 5:30am-4:00pm.  My recommendation though is to avoid the football weekends and enjoy a Studebagel and coffee early in the morning before work, school, etc. If you're up for it, you could even join the group of runners who take their morning run and head in for a bagel afterwards.

The bagels are baked fresh every night.  Standards, like whole-wheat, sesame, blueberry, and others are available every day with speciality bagels like cinnamon addiction, pesto-asiago, and poppy-seed popping up occasionally. There are speciality cream cheeses like mocha java and peanut butter chocolate chip as well as egg sandwiches and lox. The choices are so overwhelming that it's hard to even make a decision.

But honestly, there really is something to be said for a place where the staff knows the customer's orders before they come in. So come on now. You know you want to be a regular.

Tip: You can draw on the walls.  Really.

  1. This is the first time I've checked this blog out - turns out a lot of these are places I've been to and enjoy! I worked at the Studebagels on the south side (which has long been closed, it was in the plaza where Martins near Miami and Ireland Road) my senior year of high school and just after graduating. Nothing like fresh bagels! The sesame and poppy ones were always my favorite. It's actually been a long, long time since I've been there, and I even live on the north side of town now. Thinking I'll be stopping in soon, sounds good.
