Great Food, Better Friends

Bagel Bakery Unedited Pics-94

The Bagel Bakery is not only a place where you can indulge in delectable bagels, but also a place of community. This business was created to give people a place to meet, socialize and enjoy each other’s company.

We are so fortunate to have such a strong community atmosphere in the restaurant. A former employee, Emily Christianson, came by recently to tell us all about her fiancé, her moving to Colorado and her new job. It’s so nice to remember the relationships that are built here at the Bagel Bakery.

I met Ed Petkus many years ago after he had been eating at the Bagel Bakery for about 10 years. He never failed to strike up a conversation and was always a reminder of why I do what I do.  A few years ago, a failing heart required him to move to an assisted living facility in California, but Ed is very fondly remembered at the Bagel Bakery.

Not only is our goal to continue to make the best bagels, sandwiches and coffee, but also to continue to cultivate a sense of community. I think that that may be our expertise.


Everything in Balance

A while back we introduced our delicious, new line of cookies and helped create a new definition for the word “manifesto.” We even wrote about the cookies here on these pages.

Our Manifesto Cookies have been such a hit, we’re writing about them again for those who missed it the first time.

This new line of cookies includes ingredients like cage-free eggs, hormone-free dairy, non-GMO flour, real butter and no additives. If sweet cookies are your favorite, try our chocolate chunk, salted caramel or peanut butter flavors. If fruity or savory is more your style, try the lemon blueberry or the oatmeal raisin.

So you can feel good about indulging in our cookies after trying one of our create-your-own salads. After all, everything is good in balance, right?
