History of the Beigel

While the salt beef bagel is now a staple at Beigel Bake, the shop's original menu consisted of more traditional fillings such as salmon and cream cheese, chopped herring, cheddar, and egg. However, it wasn't until a local Jewish deli announced it was closing that the bagel shop decided to add salt beef to its menu. This addition created the mouth-watering salt beef bagel that has become synonymous with Beigel Bake today.

Beigels 24/7

With 24/7 opening hours, Beigel Bake is a favourite among locals and tourists alike, making it a perfect pit stop after a night out or for a quick lunch. And now, thanks to their website, you can even schedule regular deliveries of their delicious bagels.
