Bagels Worthy of Consumption

There’s a reason there’s nearly always a line outside of Moe’s Broadway Bagel (multiple locations, moesbagel.com): The shop makes killer bagels (not squishy or stale), in 16 varieties, including traditional stalwarts like onion and poppy, as well as newer, worthy flavors like tomato-cheddar and cranberry-walnut. When we’re farther south, we head to the Bagel Deli (6439 E. Hampden Ave., 303-756-6667, thebageldeli.com), where the rounds are so fresh and tasty—crispy on the outside, soft on the inside—that toasting them should be considered blasphemy. —PD
