Detroit Institute of Bagels in Corktown has everything you want in a really good bagel shop. Bagels that are boiled and baked fresh each morning? Yep. Lots of options for cream cheese and smoked fish? Affirmative. A chorizo, avocado, and egg sandwich called the La Colmena that we’d eat every morning if we could? OK, you get the point. All of the bagels are great, but if they haven’t run out of the small batch rosemary olive oil bagels yet, make sure to grab one when you go.
