These are my favorite bagels in Seattle: hand-rolled, dense and wood-fired Bagels. You can buy a dozen, keep them in your freezer, and enjoy them later one at a time. They even give you bags to freeze the bagels in!
I like to have lunch there in a casual and nice ambiance thanks to the friendly staff. You can choose your favorite kind of bagel (Plain, Sesame, Poppy, Wheat, Cinnamon Raisin, Gluten Free,…), then choose a savory or sweet spread: Date Walnut Cream Cheese, Pomegranate Berry Cream Cheese, Fig Apricot Compote, Almond Butter, Za’atar and Scallion Cream Cheese, Lox Spread, Harissa Hummus, and more. You can also order a garnish sandwich.
People from the East Coast may even say these bagels are good… for the West Coast!
I like the art on the wall: a giant Crossword puzzle by artist Justin Ken Elder. And if you are bored or by yourself, ask for a copy of the crossword of the week.
