berkeley/oakland bagels

so i've asked this before on this board. but wanted to know of any late-breaking, even encouraging news on the subject: where in berkeley or oakland to get bagels these days?

i'll be picking a couple dozen up early this coming saturday morning for my yom kippur break-fast.

(i read that saul's gets in artisanal montreal-style bagels--beauty bagels?--on sat am, but they'll be closed until sundown for the holiday)

a few years back i was getting decent bagels at manhattan bagels on 4th street. last year, my husband could barely slice the ones from manhattan w/ the bread knife, they were so mushy.

our closest bagel store is a noah's--which i haven't tried in a while, but the last time i did, they were similarly bad.

with such good options for challah and rye breads in these parts, you'd think there would be an uptick in availability of good bagels.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
