I am from New Jersey and I have spent a lot of time in New York. I know my fucking bagels. There is a myth that you can't find good bagels in LA. Yes, they are hard to come by, but they exist. Here are the best ones I've had. Add yours!
  1. New York Bagel and Deli, Mar Vista
    For sure the best bagel I've had in LA. Found this six minutes after I moved to Mar Vista. You're welcome. But don't tell anyone else about it.
  2. Yeastie Boys, Food Truck in various locations in WeHo, DTLA, and Silverlake
    Could really go for their vegan Mishka sandwich RIGHT NOW.
  3. Brooklyn Water Bagel (Near LAX)
    Skeptic at first because Larry King's face is on the billboard, but check it out if you're in the area or going to/from the airport - it's NY bagels at their finest...in LA.

    In Venice. Not a bagel place but the bagel sandwiches are, like everything else there, stupendous

  6. Sam's Bagels in Larchmont
    Perfect ratio of soft doughyness in the middle with a crunchy outside.

  8. New York Bagel & Deli, Santa Monica
    Haven't been to the one in Mar Vista but this one is right out of the East Village.
