Brooklyn Boy Bagels
Real-deal artisan NYC bagels come to Sydney
"Favourite Bagel" – 2013 Sydney Food Bloggers Choice Awards
"Best Bagel" – 2013 Best of Sydney Awards (Alt Media)
Brooklyn Boy Bagels is Sydney's first true artisan New York bagel maker and bakery. Launched by Brooklyn-born food journalist Michael Shafran, we produce bagels using the time-worn traditional methods that have made NYC the bagel capital of the world. From kettle-boiling to hand-rolling, long cold fermentation and top-quality produce, we put our hearts and souls into our bagels. We don't cut corners, so Australians can enjoy bagels the way they are meant to be: chewy, malty and with the necessary depth of flavour.
We are from the borough of Steve Buscemi, Mos Def, Mel Brooks, Biggie Smalls, Jay-Z, the Brooklyn Nets, Larry David, Jimmy Fallon and the less-annoying cast members of Girls. We taste like Brooklyn, because we are Brooklyn, and from the same Polish-Jewish roots whose artisans first transported bagel-making culture to the New World.
You can find us at farmers markets and pop-ups around Sydney, as well as leading city cafes and gourmet food stores. We're also in the hunt for our first full-fledged bakery, so join our newsletter to get the lowdown before anyone else does!
