Best bagels in Denver?
My husband and I love love love Diane's on Parker Road and Dartmouth but it's a bit far from our new house now so now it's more of a treat instead of a common trip. I would appreciate any recs in the Denver area - SE, CC, WP, Downtown, etc.
It's been a few weeks but I just saw this.
I can't believe nobody has mentioned The Bagel Store (original name, huh?) near Monaco & Leetsdale. Just looked it up and it's 942 S Monaco - it's in the southeast corner of the strip mall with Hobby Lobby.
It's kosher, so you can't get a bagel with lox. This was a minor disappointment the first time I went but the bagels themselves more than made up for it. They're just like the good ones you get in New York, and they also have challah, hamentachen, rugelach, etc.
Now I go and get a dozen and stick all but a few in the freezer - they defrost pretty well in the toaster. Just make sure you cut them (or have them cut them for you) before you freeze them... I made that mistake the first time!
It's always kids working there and they're always very nice. Just be sure to bring cash only!
