    We almost missed our flight home (Montreal - NYC) because we had to have a bagel. I like both, for different reasons, in different contexts.

    I will have to try these when I move to MA next month, good bagels don't exist in Seattle so it should be a treat.

    When I'm in a place that is not, to my knowledge, a source of great bagels, my emphasis shifts to what's on the bagel. Why lament bad roads when you've got good trails?

    For the hole dislikers, it's there on a Montreal bagel because the dough get wrapped around you hand.

    Iggy's makes great bread. But they are not bagel-makers. Katz, on the other hand:

    OK, OK. I still haven't made it there. But in the opinions of people whose taste I respect, Katz is way up there.

    I hate to say it but I think Exodus in JP does a good job, trendy as they are. It doesn't hurt that I can get them home still warm from the bin.

    I don't know if this is still the case but I remember being warned, several decades ago, not to buy a slice (a slice of pizza) in the SF area. I found myself, peckish and forgetful, in Sausalito, one afternoon and bought one.
    It was without a doubt the worst pizza I have ever put in my mouth.
    Catsup on stale pita would have been better.
    The horror. The horror.
    GO!

    Not to hijack the thread, but that's simply not the case any longer. As someone who has spent almost exactly half a lifetime each in NY and CA, I believe the bagel stereotype is still largely true; pizza, not so much. Pizza styles and toppings in CA may produce a guttural urge to scream in a grouchy NYer, but the quality is there. Bagels in CA on the other hand --outside of a very few specialty places doing it right-- are mostly just soft, cakey, round pieces of bread.

    Iggy's Bagels are Montreal inspired but Sourdough driven. It will be nice to get another vote...

    I'm a big fan of Iggy's, especially their sourdough.

    But sourdough bagels? I just don't get it.
    GO!

    Let your preconceptions take a walk for a few minutes. Toast one with a schmear or butter. Take a bite. Mmmmm... They are a unique treasure...

    +1. Bagels are Plain, Poppy or Sesame.

    And Campagnolo cranks have five arms.

    Sounds like Iggy might have just found the one true religion. Montreal bagels are the best I've tried, but sourdough....
