Bagels in Barcelona or Gerona?

Hello again! We have been to Barcelona twice in 2 years (love all of Spain also), and have yet to find a Bagel Shop; does such a thing exist in Barcelona or Gerona? I inquire about Gerona because many Spaniards have told us it is both beautiful and a great place to live....
Thank You!

Hi,

I suggest that if you really want good bagles that you go to Prague.

I just hope you didn't waste more than 10 minutes in Barcelona looking for something like a bagel...although I suppose there are people from Spain who go to Philadelphia looking for tapas, too...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Speaking of Tapas, I had great tapas at a resturant in Prague in the Mala Strana called the Source. Same group that owns Kampa Park.

Oh come on, please stick to Barcelona and Gerona.

The reason I ask about Bagels in both these cities is because we are contemplating a move to one of them, and we currently own a couple of bagel stores.

The move to either Barcelona or Gerona is basically because we speak Spanish, and more-so want to be close to Winter Skiing (Catalunya Pyrenees and Andorra and France). We LOVE Skiing!!!!

We just want to know if they exist, and if they are any good?

In any event, can any LOCALS state whether it is a good business venture or flat-out crazy.

Gracias!

I hear that Girona has a quaint Jewish quarter in the medieval old town (thanks to Maribel, who is an authority in the Spain threads). Thus I bet there were many bagel shops in Girona before the expulsion in 1492 (or whenever). My advice: stick to Girona and renew that tradition ;-)

Hi Gpaul,

If you had told us that you were thinking of opening a bagle shop in Barcelona you would have avoided the jokes.

Hope it works out for you.

What you need to do is take your shoes, clap them together and say "there's no food like bagels" three times, and then a bagel shop will appear.
