How are your bagels made? Are they kettle boiled?


Yes they are! Our bagels go through a special process before they reach your plate. Firstly, we create the dough using fresh ingredients (we never use presertatives). We then proceed to roll the dough into a bagel shape. After that, our bagels sit in the fridge to poof. A crucial step that gives our bagels that extra chewey, shiny, and crispy goodness is how our bagels are dropped into a kettle of boiling water. The hot water cooks the starch on the otside of the bagel giving the bagels a signiture crisp crust. We then proceed to hand top each bagel with one (or multiple) of our many toppings. Lastly, our bagels go into the oven to bake. Our bagels are Authentic New York Style Bagels.




Are your bagels Vegan?


Yes! Most of our classic bagels are vegan except for our egg bagel, jalapeno cheddar, and gourmet bagels.




Can you personalize/customize bagels?


We can shape our bagels into letters and numbers as well as personalizing them your need (example: a name or message). You can order and find it as Alpha Bagels in the order online section. Please order 24-48 hours in advance so the bagels can get enough time to poof. Visit our gallery for pictures.
