Your guide to the best bagels in Dayton

There’s something quite satisfying about a bagel -- and if you’re a fan of cream cheese, they can be downright decadent.

Here are some of the best places to get bagels in Dayton.

1. My Favorite Muffin & Bagel

175 E Alex Bell Rd. #216, Washington Township

Sometimes the secret to a killer bagel, isn’t even the bagel! Cream cheese can be the vehicle for all the flavor you can fit into one breakfast. One bite of a MFMB bagel smeared with their signature bacon cream cheese, you’ll be a believer too.
