This Oakland-based pop-up is making incredible New York-style bagels that are perfectly chewy, and have crackly crusts that are covered in a lot of seasoning (ready your vacuums—it will get messy). The bagels are even better topped with one of the thick housemade schmears, like jalapeño, scallion, or beet and poppy seed. If you want to get your hands on these bagels, place an order online for delivery or pick-up in SF or the East Bay—and note the 12 bagel minimum. Poppy Bagels also does bagel sandwiches on Saturdays at the Grand Lake Farmers’ Market, and will be opening a brick-and-mortar in Temescal by early fall 2022.
