Bagels in LA?

Where are the best bagels? I like the ones from Barney's Greengrass, but I'm wondering if there's a place that is a bit more reasonably priced than $3.50 a bagel!

I did a search on here to no avail.

Thanks for the help.

  1. Western Bagel still around? They used to be fantastic in the 1980's and 90's when I still lived in LA. I only know of the one located in the Valley, tho.

      Yes, they are still around. They're pretty good too.

    2. Brooklyn Bagel? They make bagels for many restaurants around town. Pretty authentic NY style bagels.
      Monday-Friday 3pm-5pm half price.

      Brooklyn Bagel Bakery
      2217 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles
      (213) 413-4114
      7am-11pm 7 days

        If your serious about real, NY quality, than Brooklyn Bagel is the only game in town. Unfortunately (if you're coming from SM) it's almost downtown, but I'd say worth the trip.

        Bagel Broker is a very distant second best.

          Haven't tried Brooklyn Bagel, but I have hit most of the places mentioned in SM and WLA, including New York Bagel and Deli and New York Bagel Co. Like you say, they leave a lot to be desired...

          Glad I clicked into the bagels section, cuz I had the address's been maybe 13 years since I last went to Brooklyn Bagel. I used to live in Angelino Heights, but I thought they were gone the other day cuz I was cruising for them on Temple Blvd. not Beverly. Thanks for the address - there is a god.

        3. Love NYBD on Wilshire near 26th next door to Earth Wind and Flour and across from Whole foods.

          1. New York Bagel Co in Brentwood on San Vicente (across from Coral Tree) is the BEST! My pic is the Pumpernickel Raisin Bagel w/ reduced-fat cream cheese. They also have amazing flattened 'Everything' bagels that are great. The place is packed on weekends, but worth it...

              Yes ...Great flat bagels.... also the best chicken soup around...

            2. Always a fan of the Bagel Broker, on Beverly near Fairfax, expecially when I'm able to catch them just out of the oven..
