Bagels in Kansas City
So, what's a good place to get good bagels in KC? I haven't lived here too terribly long, so the only places I know are Einstein Brothers and Panera, which are good for what they are, I guess, but more like pastries than bagels. I'm looking for JoCo specifically, but metro KC as well.
I would love to find good bagels here. Most bagels here are big, soft bread donuts, which are not what I am looking for. Not even New York Bakery or any of the Hen Houses have decent bagels.
You want to try Jersey Shore Bagel at 6009A Johnson Dr. It's not the best bagel I've ever had -- that was a joint in Norfolk, VA -- but I think they're pretty tasty. And they are certainly the only real bagels I've had here in town. They are chewy, with a substantial crust, the kind that bubbles a little when you toast them. You need to get there in the morning, though, because they often sell out by mid-day.
