Goldstein’s Bagel Bakery is right next to In-n-Out by Santa Anita Ave and Colorado! I don’t usually eat here, but I was glad when I had a buy one, get one coupon that was expiring soon and two friends who wanted to go! Unlike In-n-Out, Goldstein’s never has a long line and it isn’t crowded inside. The bagels are so fresh and the sandwiches taste great though. Goldstein’s serves a variety of hot and cold bagel sandwiches for breakfast and lunch, and there is a hot breakfast counter available too! It’s from Goldstein’s that I learned that “a true bagel is boiled, then hearth-baked.”
The smoked salmon sandwich comes with your choice of bagel toasted or not, cream cheese, tomatoes, and capers! It’s Goldstein’s most popular sandwich.
Pastrami Special Sandwich for $5.49- Served on a whole wheat toasted bagel, tomatoes, red onions, and pickles! I didn’t want cheese on my sandwich, so one of the workers there asked if I wanted extra of anything else in the sandwich. I got extra tomatoes! I give Goldstein’s 4 stars for their friendly service and delicious food.
