It's not easy to get a great bagel in Southern California. It's easy enough to get a bagel, but too many of them are just bread in another shape, by another name.
But it's not impossible. There are a handful of shops that turn out solid, satisfying bagels, and a few that make genuinely delicious bagels. A good bagel should be dense and substantial, but never a brick — pliable and chewy, with a slight crispness to the outermost layer.
Enter the Bagel Broker! It's a small shop that gets very busy, but service is great and the lines move quickly. There's also plentiful seating, which is not the case at most of these kind of places. The bagels are dense and spongy on the inside, offering a soft, pleasant chew. Bagel Broker also does a delicious lox sandwich that takes at least half an hour to eat.
