Hard to believe but they're better than my old New York bagels. – I'm from NY and lived a few years in LA and bagels are a part of my life. When I moved to Seattle, I missed many things but the bagels I missed the most. When I was at Whole Foods, I purchased some bagels that were amazingly good for a large market like Whole Foods. They told me they came from Blazing Bagels of Redmond. It took me a few times to find Blazing Bagels but when you find it you appreciate even more like I did. If you think you're lost, keep going because it's hidden in a small industrial area. The smell, the look, the atmosphere and the wonderful service reminded me of the best of New York. I was a little
overwhelmed by the selection but now I appreciate it. I may never have the Sweet French Toast bagel but the Jalapeno Pepperjack bagel is now a favorite. I love everything about this place and you can tell it's customer's love it too. I'm 40 plus and have never been in a retail place like this. It seems like everyone knows the owner and the employees seem to know every customer. They also bake brownies, muffins, scones and challah. They have the best Lox in the Seattle area and yesterday I had the Pastrami for the first time. It too is as good as their bagels. If you are a challah eater, they make the best I've ever eaten. Like my friend told me, Blazing Bagels is a real find and I'll add, hard to find at that. Go eat a bagel.
