Best Breakfast – Heights: Golden Bagel & Coffee

Move over breakfast tacos and kolaches, bagels are in the neighborhood now; and at this White Oak shop, they mean business. Here, New York-caliber bagels with a nice chew come freshly baked, toasted (upon request), and accompanied by things like house cured and smoked fish, pastrami egg scrambles, and cream cheese schmears in flavors from scallion dill to honey habanero (if you like heat and catch it on special, give it a try). Pair your bagel breakfast with fantastic coffees, as local guru Avi Katz of Katz Coffee is one of the names behind the concept.
