You’re not going to get a real New York-style bagel in Seattle unless you bring one back from the East Coast on a plane. But while Westman’s bagels don’t quite succeed at replicating what you’ll find in NYC (where bagels are more dense), they’re as close as you’re going to get - this place is certainly serving the best bagels in Seattle. Flavors range from classic, like everything and sesame, to things like Maldon sea salt and cinnamon currant. Nothing’s bad, but the everything bagel with a salty lox schmear is outstanding. Consider coming at the crack of dawn (a.k.a. 7am) when they open, because they do sell out, and be set on potentially paying seven dollars for a bagel. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Bakery Nouveau is an excellent Capitol Hill bakery we like most for the twice baked almond croissant and croque monsieur.
For breakfast on the go in Belltown, go for a breakfast sandwich at Dahlia (there are only four seats there). And couple coconut cream pie bites.
