Readers, upstate: Fabulous Bagel Boys (4706 Limestone Road, Wilmington, 892-9303)
Readers, downstate: Surf Bagel & Deli (17382 Coastal Hwy., Lewes, 644-1822)
Critics, upstate: Bagelmania turns outright manic in the mornings, when fresh homemade bagels like the popular cheddar-dill flavor, coffee and warm bagel sandwiches fly. “They have a great selection, and it’s always fresh,” Keeler says. “And they are great supporters of the UD football program.” (416 Suburban Drive, Newark, 369-1950)
Critics, downstate: Inside the surf-themed Surf Bagel & deli (complete with boards), New York-style bagels achieve a perfectly satisfying chewy bite. “They’re hands down the best,” Livingston says. “They can give New York a run for its money. Great spreads and sandwiches, too.” Wax up your surf bagel with gourmet spreads such as lox, sun-dried tomato, and scallion. (17382 Coastal Hwy., Lewes, 644-1822)
