Please help! I just moved to Walnut Creek from SF and the only bagel shop I have found is a Noahs, which has doughy flavorless bagels. I am looking for an independent shop ideally where the owners have actually tasted a real bagel from NY. I did like Noe Valley bagels in SF which offered slightly more authentic bagels along with 3 types of lox.
Is there anything decent in this neck of the woods? Double points if there is a decent NY style deli. I know this is asking a lot, but I am having relatives in for the next several weekends who will expect bagels and lox on sunday mornings.
