Joel Bundy started making bagels because he was bored. After teaching himself the technique, the Portland native made 25 batches of self-described “incredible” bagels, but he didn’t tell anyone. Ten years after his secret carby affair, Bundy is making arguably the best bagels in town out of a food cart in the Hawthorne District. He is determined to use the best, local ingredients, and his care for the craft can be tasted in every crisp, fluffy bite. Bundy’s Bagels offers breakfast and lunch options, but for the purists, these fresh bagels are best simply schmeared.
