Inspired by tradition, Philly Style Bagels are slow fermented in small batches, hand rolled, and boiled before baking, but with an innovative process that bends the rules of bagel making. Inspired by the great beer culture of Philadelphia, we boil them in a mixture of beer and water for a special malted flavor. The results are so unique we coined a new style, named for the city where they were conceived. Philly Style Bagels are crunchy on the outside, yet soft on the inside with an unparalleled malty sweetness.  

For a major city, Philadelphia has surprisingly few options for fresh baked bagels.  

Beginning with a series of pop-ups at Pizzeria Beddia, we aim to do the following:

  • spread the word about a new style of bagel

  • raise money to open our permanent shop

  • make the best bagels in the City of Philadelphia

When in pursuit of a great bagel or a great coffee, we are often forced to settle for one or the other.  We aim to make the dream of having both a quality bagel and a quality cup of coffee a reality. We serve our bagels alongside Counter Culture Coffee.  

Come out to one of our pop-ups, and you'll see why our bagels are already being called the best in the city!
