Brooklyn Boy Bagels
Real-deal artisan NYC bagels come to Sydney
"Favourite Bagel" – Sydney Food Bloggers Choice Awards
"Best Bagel" – 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.
NEWS: We've recently moved our bakery to a great new warehouse space in Marrickville, but unlike our last spot in Matraville, there's no cafe here at present. We've got plans in the works, but for now, the best way to find us is at our farmers market stalls across Sydney, as well as at leading city cafes and gourmet food stores.
