Patch Picks: Local Bagel Joints to Take the Dread Out of Your Morning Routine

Because there's nothing like a freshly buttered sesame bagel to start your day off on the right foot.

Out of towners typically visit New York for three reasons: The Statue of Liberty, the fashion, and the bagels. Westchester dwellers understand this unique breakfast treat is not just a round piece of bread with a hole in the middle—it’s a delicacy brimming with flavors very few people outside the tri-state area have the privilege of becoming acquainted with.

Here are our favorite places to lighten up a grueling morning routine—breakfast is the most important meal of the day, after all.

Rye Brook

Open for those early risers craving a buttered “everything” bagel before they hop on the train for their morning commute, Lenny’s is open at 6am every day, selling a slew of beverage choices (including coffee!) and other snacks.

Port Chester

Folks who grab something on-the-go for breakfast are later welcomed to come back for lunch as the eatery also offers fruit, yogurt, paninis, wraps and salads all day long. Open from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week, catering and delivery are available.


Meeting a friend for breakfast or lunch? This restaurant boasts a cozy interior seating area perfect for two coffee guzzlers to dish about everything from politics to day care.


There aren’t many places besides the gas station for those coming off graveyard shifts to pick up a perfectly satisfying bacon-egg-and-cheese sandwich. Lucky for them, this town favorite is open from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., serving up hot breakfast at all hours of the morning and afternoon.

Steve, the official address for Lenny's Bagels is 200 S. Ridge Street, Port Chester. I agree though, its location does make things a bit confusing!

This is where a good old-fashioned Hagstrom's map would be invaluable. If I'm not mistaken, it shows the exact village/town lines and (often intersecting) post office lines (or how people can live in Yonkers but have a Tuckahoe postal address.) Anyone got one to pull out?

I love the Bagel Emporium !!

Fixed the Lenny's Bagels entry and put it under Rye Brook, sorry for any confusion.
