There’s nothing new about bagels and it’s for sure not a local product. But as it is quite tasty I want to add it to my favourite spots in Ghent. At Jackie’s they have breakfast bagels, sweet bagels and salty bagels. You can choose your type of bagel and type of cream cheese.
There is actually a local kind of bagel which has been produced here for a long time: the mastel. You can find it in several bakeries in Ghent. The bagel with cinnamon, which Jakcie sells, is about the same product, although it’s not served in the traditional way. I’m waiting for Jackie to add more bagels with local products, like Gandaham or Hinkelspelcheese.
It’s close to Zuidpark, so get your bagel here and go enjoy the sun and your bagel!
