My D.C. area bagels of choice happen to be the ones at Brooklyn Bagel Bakery in Courthouse. I almost always order the egg and cheese on an everything bagel. These bagels have crispy outsides and non-bready insides, making them real bagels as opposed to the junk they serve up at the area chains.
The lines can be long, but they move very quickly, and be sure to bring some bills because they only accept cash.
