Revisiting the Detroit Institute of Bagels

☕Joe here. Detroit Institute of Bagels, how I've missed you.

State of play: DIB reopened months ago in Core City after shuttering its Corktown space during the pandemic.

  • I was once a DIB regular and returned this week for the first time since it moved.

🥯 What I ordered: The Supernova — scrambled eggs, veggie cream cheese, sauteed kale and lox between a toasted sesame seed bagel ($13.50).

💭 Thought bubble: My favorite bagel combo is still lox and cream cheese. But the Supernova is worth a try, especially if you want a heartier meal. The eggs weren't dried out and the kale's natural bitterness was cooked out nicely.

If you go: 4884 Grand River Ave.

  • Open Wednesday-Sunday, 8am-2pm.
