Gerritsen Beach Bagels

Bakery/Cafe in Sheepshead Bay

    Perfect for
  • Breakfast
  • Brunch
  • Serious Take-Out Operation

Technically across the Sheepshead Bay border in Gerritsen Beach, this local-favorite bagel spot might just have the most delicious rainbow bagel in Brooklyn. It’s fluffier and more flavorful than most of its kind, and on the weekend you can get it with colorful funfetti cream cheese. The breakfast sandwiches here are on-point too, and the pumpernickel everything bagel is dense and chewy, like a loaf of great rye bread. Walk down to the end of Gerritsen Avenue and eat your bagel out on The Point, a secluded beach overlooking Gerritsen Creek. Here, you can experience the strange juxtaposition of standing between the edges of the water and the salt marsh, the Belt Parkway humming in the distance. It’s a bizarre experience, like something out of a sci-fi movie, so you’ll need that bagel to keep you grounded.
