Missing on U Street: A Bagel Shop

A new feature where we highlight one reader’s complaint about what’s missing in their home, work or favorite hangout nabe.

We’ve all heard the complaints before - DC has a remarkable dearth of bagel shops - and not just decent bagel shops, but any bagel shops. “Why can’t we have bagels like New York?” the people cry out on blogs and and at water coolers across the city. Well, this ain’t New York, and it never will be - and we’re okay with that. But when @UStreetBuzz tweeted this: “U Street/14th/Logan Cir is missing BAGELS! How can the most densely populated part of DC not have a bagel shop? #UStreetNeedsBagels,” it occurred to us that the U Street Corridor would indeed be a great place to start the citywide bagel shop revolution. The neighborhood certainly has enough excellent coffee shops to complement our breakfast obsession. Do you have a go-to for bagels in that area? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter using the hashtag #missing.
