This morning, in keeping with my French food fast, I grabbed a sesame bagel with hummus and cucumbers for an eat-in-the-car breakfast at The Bagelry ("Best bagels west of the Hudson", 2139 Polk St., 415.441.3003). Bagel production here is entirely on-premise from making the dough, to BOILING and baking. A good bagel, maybe not as chewy as I'd like, but satisfying nonetheless. Nice counter help and the wall-sized painting honoring bagel aviation add to the experience. This has been my preferred bagel stop in the City, but I'm wondering whether there are others I'm missing out on.
Hounds? And, don't even say the "N" word, please. (g)
