Le Bagel Mania: new bagel shops in the City

LE readers recently spotted two new bagel shops in town. Both offer American-style bagel sandwiches, hot dogs, cookies, muffins and more (thanks Dori and N.!)

Bagel's Place
267 Avenue Berthelot 69008

Bagel's Place has an inviting atmosphere, a menu in French AND English! and soon, an American épicerie!

Manhattan Cafe
Centre Commercial la Part-Dieu
(top floor of the new part of the mall)

A large variety of bagel sandwiches. Very similar to Best Bagels Company but with slightly friendlier prices!
