If you’ve ever been to New York City and tasted a NY-style bagel for yourself, you know that these bagels are unlike any other. In order to duplicate this authentic taste, we learned from New York bagel bakeries themselves. From kettle-cooking the bagels to baking in small batches that ensure freshness, we spent more than two years working with New York bagel bakers to perfect our recipe so we could deliver that authentic taste to our customers across the county. 


New York bagel bakeries have been using the same techniques for baking fresh bagels since the early 1900s, and that’s something that we try to honor at Bruegger’s Bagels. These bagel bakeries cook their bagels in a kettle before baking them in a real stone hearth oven, giving them the amazing taste that you love. At Bruegger’s Bagels, we don’t want to change a good thing. Stop in and taste our New York-style bagels for yourself!

Traditional Methods

The traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation of bagel bakers are to be treasured. Our bagels have just five simple ingredients: flour, water, malt, yeast, and salt. This leaves no room for preservatives, giving you the freshest, most traditional, and authentic tasting bagel we could produce. We may not come from a generation of bagel bakers, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t learn from them.
