Boichik Bagels

Boichik BagelsWhy is it hard to get a good bagel in California? I beg your pardon, it is not!

The New York Times recently declared, “The Best Bagels are in California (Sorry New York)”. And, what’s more, Boichik Bagels is a local, Berkeley company and their bagels have been flying off the shelves of our freezer section.

The bread has a comforting squish—thick but yielding, chewy but not densely so, with a shiny, sweet-and-salty crust and a rich, malty breath that fills up the bag before you even get home.

This is where the writer (me), a former resident of New York City (Brooklyn), smugly tells you that these bagels are good for California bagels, excellent by West Coast standards. But no, to be clear: Emily Winston’s bagels are some of the finest New York-style bagels I’ve ever tasted. They just happen to be made in Berkeley.

We currently carry bags of their Plain Bagels and Everything Bagels. And we also carry their Pick Six Mix which is a baker’s choice of assorted flavors that may contain plain, poppy, sesame, onion, everything, salt & pepper, pumpernickel variations, whole wheat and cinnamon raisin.

We recommend that you try a bag and see for yourself!
