2. Bagel Emporium
A favorite among UM students and Gables breakfast hounds, this constantly busy bagel den serves the usual suspects -- but better. The cinnamon-raisin, everything, poppy, pumpernickel, sesame, salt, egg, and others are soft, dense, and delicious. And for transplanted purists, there are smoked fish and black-and-white cookies.
1. The Bagel Express
This long-term resident, owned by a husband-and-wife team, won Best Bagels in this year's "Best of Miami" issue
. Everything's done the old-fashioned way, and it shows. Bagels are hefty and crisp, and come in all the crucial flavors. They also stock Boar's Head deli cold cuts and Dr. Brown's sodas to round out that authentic experience.
