Greetings from Tampa Bay, Florida

Hello everyone,

I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself and the family business, St. Pete Bagel Co

We're a small, family-owned kosher bagel bakery, operating in St. Petersburg, Florida since 1987. Our specialty is authentic NY-style (i.e. boiled and baked) bagels, but we also have an assortment of bialys, deli sandwiches, pastries, and coffee. Here are some photos of the bagel goodies that we bake every night (we do not sell frozen bagels):

Our bakers have a combined experience of over 25 years, and our wholesale clients include some of the most luxurious hotels, resorts, and hospitals in the Tampa Bay area. 

I apologize for the commercial plug, but I did want to briefly highlight that if any of you are interested, we do sell our bagels online; just visit our bagels by mail page. We offer overnight as well as 2-3 day shipping, and vacuum seal all orders; we guarantee that your order will arrive fresh! If you have any questions, just shoot us an email or talk to one of our employees via the Live Chat support that we recently finished installing on our website.

Again, it's a pleasure to meet everyone. I look forward to being a part of The Fresh Loaf community!

Beautiful bagels.

Could you share a recipe for a pumpernickel bagel?

they look so scrumptious, and would like to try one (didnt' eat breakfast this morning bad me) and while I would love to try a sample, they are a bit far from home for me and even over the mail don't think they would be as good as in the shop!

Will just have to try and make some of my own.
