Not Your Ordinary Bagel Store!

When you buy a dozen of our LI Bagel Café Bagels that are still warm, we will place them in a paper bag and ask you to keep the bag open and not place them in a plastic bag.Why? Because our hot from the oven bagels need to breathe. Placing a warmbagel in a plastic bag (before it has had time to cool) may cause unwanted dampness. When your bagels are cooled off, you can store them in a plastic bag properly for maximum eating enjoyment.

Storing Bagels

Freeze on the day of purchase, 15 seconds per bagel in the microwave to thaw. Or keep bagels in plastic bag at room temperature, up to 3 days from purchase date.

Cutting Bagels

Lay the bagel flat with fingers on top outstrected, slice half way through. Then stand the bagel upright and finish slicing.
