Bagel & Box

Bridgetown Bagel Company
The bagels that get boiled and baked inside the Bridgetown Bagel Company’s bright yellow cart are some of Portland’s best takes on the traditional Jewish foodstuff. But if you’d like to supplement your bagel with a healthy dose of irony, go for the Three Little Pigs, which adds the decidedly un-kosher trinity of ham, sausage, and bacon to the classic egg and cheese. 5221 NE Sandy Blvd; bridgetownbagel.com
