Bagels are rings of dough that, unlike rings of fire or rings of recently heated car lighters, will never burn you. Savor the safety of an edible holed-circle with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a baker's dozen of bagels and an 8 oz. plain or light cream cheese (an $11.50 value) at Brooklyn Bagel Bakery. Owned and operated by the Friedman family, Brooklyn Bagel Bakery has been garnering critical acclaim for its New York–style bagels since 1953. The Friedmans prepare their cream-cheese conduits the traditional way, boiling them before baking, and make them fresh seven days a week, 365 weeks a year. Brooklyn Bagel's more than 30 varieties, which include sesame, blueberry, banana nut, and sourdough, have been engineered for maximum lox capacity, making them a mainstay at many of Southern California's most popular delicatessens, such as Canter's, Langer's, and Nate 'n Al's.
Though Brooklyn Bagel offers bagels at half price during their daily happy hour, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Los Angeles magazine and the Los Angeles Times called the bagels at Brooklyn Bagel Bakery some of the best in the city. The Times also featured the bakery in its article about different bagels in LA. Yelpers give Brooklyn Bagel Bakery an average rating of four stars, and Citysearchers give it an average of 4.5 stars.
