Wish I’d taken more pictures but the bagels are great. Showed up at 7:25 Sunday morning, fourth in line. The line was 30 people long by the time we ordered.
Pumpernickel Rye w/ Caraway Seed and Salt ! Pastrami Lox
Thought bagels were good but not blown away. I liked the schmears more than the bagels.
Damn that looks good! LOVE a good pumpernickel.
Hard to tell based on a pumpernickel, curious how the texture is on those bagels?
The pumpernickel was my favorite for sure.
Chewy, a little bready, ate a few just plain ripping them apart.
Thanks to the lockdown, I finally got to try these. Not crisp or crunchy at all. Chewier than the average East Bay poofy-bread excuse for a bagel. Even though they were fresh, they needed to be toasted. Whitefish salad was good.
Didn’t have that special old-school flavor you can still get at Bagel Hole, which Schmendrick’s managed to duplicate locally, albeit not profitably.
I prefer Baron’s, which are maybe half the price.
I love that name LOL
