Then get yourself down to Beans & Bagels, located on Johnston St, Fitzroy.
Delicious boiled bagels, baked and prepared on site, a selection of coffees and teas to die for, not to mention the sincere, efficient service you will receive from the owners Stu & Steve. Beans & Bagels fail to disappoint.
There are a huge selection of bagels to choose from, including plain, sesame, dill or fresh herb for the savoury inclined. Or perhaps you are a sweet tooth and the cinnamon or blueberry is more your style. Beans & Bagels has something for everyone.
If you desire a more classic New York style bagel with a filling, Beans & Bagels has an array to choose from.
I totally recommend 'The New Yorker' filled with salmon, cream cheese, capers, greens and red onions, it really hits the spot!
The West Sider' is another favourite of mine; filled with avocado, cream cheese, ham and the yummiest honey mustard.
Beans & Bagels also offer a selection of other breakfast/brunch type meals such as pancakes or eggs benedict – both of which I have tried and again, both of which I give the big thumbs up.
Beans & Bagels manufacture their bagels on site and do not add any oils, fats or preservatives to their recipe, which is a plus for the health conscious.
And for those watching their weight, the plain variety of bagels on offer are 99% fat free which means you can indulge without feeling guilty.
A selection of sweets, smoothies, hot chocolates and other yummies are also available at Beans & Bagels.
