Best Bagels 

Detroit Institute of Bagels

1236 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-444-9342; detroitinstituteofbagels.com

It's all about that crunch! Whether you're talking classic New York-style or their heartier Montreal cousins, if a bagel doesn't crack a bit when you first bite, that means it wasn't first boiled and then baked properly (which means it's not even a bagel, but rather a bread-sponge). DIB has perfected the art of bagel-making. You'd have to drive 11 hours east to get anything remotely as good. They also serve up decent coffee, and sandwiches, and make all kinds of fancy cream cheese varieties. Day-olds are one dozen for $5, but they run out quickly.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
