Around Town - Vineyard Haven
The MV Bagel Authority (under new ownership this year - so ignore old reviews on Yelp) grinds out Italian-brew espressos and hand-rolls, kettle-boils and bakes it's bagels to old-fashioned standard. You can't walk by without resisting temptation. Island New Yorkers will attest, "They're the best around...rivaling the best that can be had in NYC"...now that's a pretty strong statement. On any given day, you will usually find owner, Anthony Capelli, pulling a paddle of bagels out of the oven...or handing out samples of his latest recipe (French Toast Bagel, or Spinach Pumpernickle anyone?). My kids love him...and the French Toast Bagels.
