Boston’s best bagels for five years running, Bagel Rising has a reputation as an inexpensive munchy repository for hung-over twentysomethings. Sixteen from-scratch bagel varieties, 10 flavors of cream cheese, five tofu spreads, and an inundation of topping options better explain why, on some early afternoons, a swiftly serviced line spills from B.R.’s storefront onto the sidewalk. Ever wonder what heaven tastes like? Try a Tequila Sunrise breakfast sandwich and you’ll know.
