Did a quick search, and didn't come up with much... first of all, thanks for everyone's recommendations on the donut places. I'll definitely give them all a shot! I was thinking of doing bagels and cream cheese spreads this Friday, and wanted to ping you all to see if you have any good recommendations. I'll probably buy juice and milk again, too.
Personally, I'm not that knowledgable about bagels, but I know when I've struck gold... just an ever-so-slight crunch on the outside, opening up to a wonderfully soft and doughy inside, full of flavor and great texture.
Size of the bagel doesn't matter too much, and I'd rather the bagels not be split until I buy or serve them. The inside tends to get that dry crust if cut too soon before consuming.
Anyway, I'm off of 24th St and Highland, so anything within a few miles would be great. Thanks in advance!
