You talkin' to me? 

Yeah, we're talkin' to you! Hit us up for whatever you need: bagel spreads, catering, Brooklyn travel tips, clarification on Nu Yawk lingo, our favourite Seinfeld or Girls episodes, Nets scores, whatever. Just don't ask us about cronuts or Sex in the City cupcakes - save those for those marmalukes who fake the real thing. Other than that, we're all ears.

Brooklyn Boy Bagels is an artisan producer of authentic New York bagels using proper traditional techniques and based in Sydney, Australia. We are the slow food version of these Polish-Jewish breads, using two-day cold fermentation processes, kettle boiling, hand rolling and baking on handcrafted wooden bagel boards. The bakery is the result of the vision of Brooklyn-born food writer Michael Shafran, who has been based in Australia for the past 13 years and wanted to bring a taste of home to his adopted country.

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. Stay tuned for our first retail shop!
