Current LA Bagels

From a post on LAEats on Usenet, someone brought up the inevitable local bagels suck as compared to NY.
As someone who's aunt and uncle had a Brooklyn bagel store, and wishes Noah's went out of business on Day 1, where do you get your bagels?
I get plain and bialys from the Breadman (Dick) on Sundays at the Ocean Park Farmers Market.
The Bagel Store on Sepulveda and National, in the Vons/Savon shopping center. They also have nice but expensive Challah on Fridays and nice soups. All Kosher.
I think the best bagels in LA are from Brooklyn Bagel on Beverly near Alvarado. Their poppy seed /salt bagel is my favorite.
Unless I am mistaken, The Breadman gets his bagels (as I do and I see his truck there)at The Bagel Broker, Beverly and Fairfax across from CBS TV City on the Beverly side.
Only one place for bagels, La Brea Bagel Co., 7300 block of Beverly (between Fairfax & La Brea). They're closed on Saturday.
Brooklyn Bagel's on Beverly, not far from Alvarado, has decent bagels. Not as good as H&H in New York, but certainly better than Noah's. Forget bialys. I had one at Noah's: it was mushy, with chunks of raw onion on top, and the size of a small pizza.
