Product Information

Tell me about your bagels...
  • If you prefer a larger bagel with more doughy yuminess inside, our regular bagels are for you.
  • But, if you like a smaller, denser style of bagel, more akin to what was served in parts of New York last century, try our mini bagels instead.
  • We also bake authentic New York bialys and flat bagels too!

Everything is made by hand in New York City and shipped fresh!

How long will my bagels stay fresh? How should I store them?

These are fresh-baked bakery products with no preservatives of any kind - you cannot leave them out as you would supermarket products. With our free 2-day shipping, your bagels will remain fresh and delicious for 2-3 days after delivery.

But please note: we advise to freeze your as soon as possible if not being consumed immediately. This will help preserve freshness and authentic texture.

Any bagels not being enjoyed the day of delivery should be frozen

Hey - my bagels turned moldy

Good! This is an indication that our products are baked fresh and 100% free of preservatives. Handling instructions are provided at checkout, by email and in the box you receive.

How do I serve my frozen NY bagels?

New Yorker Bagels' bagels freeze and thaw wonderfully - and will thawed sitting out in 30-45 minutes.

You can also take them out of the freezer the night before (as late as possible) so they're ready for breakfast! Please see our Detailed Bagel Handling Instructions for more information – and to discover the preferred way to prepare our hand-rolled bagels after freezing.

Please do not microwave to defrost as this damages the texture and chewiness of our bagels.

How is my order packed?

All orders are currently shipped in sleeves of 6 bagels each. Therefore, any 1 dozen order may consist of up to 2 bagel flavors, 2 dozen up to 4 flavors, and 3 dozen up to 6. You can create your own box by ordering a Custom Box

Our freezable sleeves are then packed in a white "New Yorker Bagels" branded box, so are ideal for gift giving or company breakfast meetings!

Are your bagels Kosher? What ingredients are in them?

All of our ingredients and baking procedures adhere to the strict Star-K Kosher pas Yisroel certification.

All of our ingredients and Nutritional Information are available online - we have nothing to hide!

Are your bagels vegan?

Yes! None of our bagels contain animal products - they are 100% Vegan. This includes our Egg bagels, which use an all-natural eggless egg substitute!

Do you products contain nuts? What about other allergens?

The New Yorker Bagels bakery is not a certified nut free environment, although none of our bagels contain nuts.

Residual nut contamination from our ingredient suppliers, however, is a possibility.

The only known allergens that are present in our products are wheat and sesame. All of our bagels contain wheat. The soy protein is removed from our soybean oil, so our products are exempt from this class of allergens.

Where are your Salt bagels?

After quite a bit of testing, we have found that due to their inherent moisture content, Salt bagels do not stand up to the shipping and delivery process. Since we'll never compromise on quality, Salt bagels are not available for online ordering at this time.

Tell me about your company

We started out as humble bagel shop in the West Village of New York City nearly 50 years ago. After several decades we decided to focus on wholesale baking instead of the shop. We now bake 'n boil far more than half of all bagels consumed in New York City each day!

In fact, we bake many of the bagels for other companies and brands you know. Please read our About Us page for more info.
