When it comes to comfort food, our local bagel spots know how to do it – there’s nothing like a hot bacon, egg and cheese on a bagel, or even just a freshly-made, still warm bagel smattered with cream cheese on a winter morning to take the chill out of that January air.
On National Bagel Day on Jan. 15, feel free to enjoy a bagel from one of these local spots without feeling even an ounce of guilt. With both the foodie-friendly holiday and all of us needing a dose of comfort food, dig in and enjoy!
Einstein Bros. Bagels, located at 50 Massachusetts Ave NE, Washington, DC which is right around the corner from your RESA apartment at only seven minutes away, is a counter-service cafe offering egg sandwiches, soups, salads, baked goods and a variety of bagels.
Einstein Bros. Bagels’ staff get to the shop every day at 2 a.m. to bake fresh bagels every four hours so their bagels can be as fresh and delicious as possible. They also use only the finest ingredients to create their many interesting flavors.
Pearl’s Bagels, located at 1017 7th St NW, Washington, DC which is worth every minute of its eight minute drive from your RESA apartment, hand rolls all of their bagels made with help from their sourdough starter. They offer chewy-on-the-inside/crispy-on-the-outside bagels, plus sandwiches, spreads and local pantry items.
Pearl’s is focused on sustainably sourced ingredients, choosing local options where possible. At Pearl’s, they believe bagels should be made of simple and abundant ingredients; that’s why they use just six ingredients – flour, water, salt, yeast, honey and a tiny bit of malt powder.
