    Good Bagels

    When I go to the East Coast (NYC-Jersey), I can't wait to get to a real deli and get an authentic bagel. I am refering to the tuff crust on the outside and heavy, chewy, moist on the inside kind. Not what I most unfortunately find in SW Ia. grocery chain bakery/deli's. Are there any good bagels in Des Moines (Golden Circle)?

    Head up to Ankeny and get some frosted bagel bites at CJ's Bagels. You're welcome in advance. :)

    You'll be hard pressed to find a bagel as good as those out east. Most people believe it is the water on the east coast that makes the difference.

    I've always loved Bruegger's, but maybe it's just the best the Midwest has to offer.

    I lived near DC for 2 years and I agree that bagels on the East Coast rock!! Not even Bruegers is close to a good East Coast Bagel. The other things that are great is the seafood and pastrami deli sanwiches. (There were lots of great jewish delis nearby.)

    I'm not a huge fan of bagels but CJ's is about the only thing I miss about Ankeny.

    CJs has limited hours though. Everytime I seem to want to stop by they are closed.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.
