A bagel as good as any in New York? You’re kidding, right? aylowe has been on a quest and found one at Blessed King Bagel on Fairfax just north of W. Third Street. The bagels are fresh and chewy, with an excellent flavor—the West Coast equivalent of a Big Apple staple.

They’re expensive ($4 with cream cheese) and the ambience can be described as some combination of charming, strange, and bus-stop-derelict. But the bagels make it worthwhile.
