At Calic Bagel in Koreatown, you order everything from an oversized touchscreen like a Target customer in self-checkout. It’s a nice touch that helps speed up the line of people there for one of their signature stuffed bagels, which have been reviewed on TikTok more times than we care to count. There’s no denying these puff balls filled with sweet-ish garlic cream cheese and dunked in garlic butter are delicious, but they’re way too rich to finish in one sitting. We much prefer the non-stuffed bagels, which are baked fresh every 30 minutes. They're extremely fluffy on the inside, with a thin, blistered crust that's designed to be ripped apart and dipped in cream cheese. While the dip flavors might seem gimmicky, we love the off-the-wall options like sweet corn and fig pecan. There’s usually tons of street parking right out front, plus they have a huge patio where you can sit in the sun with your breakfast.
