BEND'S BAGEL SCENE IS NOTHING SPECIAL | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

I love your annual "Best of Central Oregon" feature and I decided to test your tastes by purchasing some bagels from Rockin' Daves, your best choice for bagels in Central Oregon. Your praise, to me, was excessively effusive. I lived for several years in San Francisco,a couple of blocks from the New York Bagel Company. Rockin' Dave's doesn't come close: too fat, density fair, not chewy enough. Baking them with bacon, cheese and other items is popular nowadays but doesn't do anything for these bagels. I prefer Big O's bagels though they too are nothing to write home about. However, when it comes to pizza, the choice of Pizza Mondo as "Best" is dead on accurate. Pizza Mondo's pepperoni pizzais as good as anything I've eaten anywhere,even Naples, where the pizza was allegedly invented. Pizza Mondo is a treasure.
