About Us

Tradition You Can Taste

Founded by Nord Brue and Mike Dressell in 1983, we started as a bakery in Troy, New York. Offering a broad menu selection, we became a casual and comfortable place to enjoy breakfast, lunch and everything in between.

More than thirty years later, we’re still baking. With over 300 bakeries in 26 states, we’re a place where authentic bagel tradition is taken seriously and using the same time-honored methods of New York bagel bakeries is a must.
