If given the choice between a donut and a bagel, I'm choosing the bagel 99.9% of the time. There's nothing quite like a fresh bagel with cream cheese, especially if it's an everything bagel with garden vegetable cream cheese. Yum!

The reason we're talking bagels today is because January 15th is National Bagel Day! That means at least one popular bagel shop is offering up a great deal today.

Participating Bruegger's Bagel locations are promising customers a free bagel and cream cheese with each purchase today. That deal is good ALL DAY LONG!

Bruegger's Inner Circle Rewards members also have a special opportunity today. According to their official Facebook page, if you check-in at Bruegger’s you’ll be entered for a chance to win free bagels and cream cheese for a year!

There are several Bruegger's locations here in the Corridor:

  • 4870 1st Avenue NE in Cedar Rapids
  • 3310 Mt Vernon Rd SE in Cedar Rapids
  • 404 1st Avenue in Coralville
  • 245 Iowa Ave in Iowa City
  • 708 S Riverside Drive in Iowa City

I can confirm that both Cedar Rapids locations ARE offering the free bagel and cream cheese with each purchase today, but you may want to double-check with any other area locations.

We wish you a very happy National Bagel Day!
