Bagels are one of Those Foods. You know, like pizza or tacos. Everyone has a favorite style, and a favorite place, and friendships get broken over the disagreements. You’ll meet some guy who believes that you can’t get a good bagel outside of New York City, and some other guy will roll his eyes and go off on the Montreal variety (and then some hipster will mention Japanese bagels and your whole breakfast is ruined). Well, not all of us can jet off to sunny Canada every time we want a nosh, so we’ve rounded up your best Sonoma County bagels. They may not be on the hipsters’ lists – yet – but they’re pretty damn good.

A good bagel is one of life’s great simple pleasures. Maybe bagels aren’t worth the airfare to Kyoto or the hassle of wading through midtown Manhattan, but they’re definitely worth driving a few minutes out of your way. Don’t be one of those people who subsists on grocery store bagels their whole life. I mean, life’s about more than just making it through the day, right?
