After a twenty year career on the New York City Police Department, I decided to relocate my family to the Kingsport area. Shortly after the move, my family and I realized that the thing we missed most about New York was the bagels. We have now been in Tennessee since 2010 and have fallen in love with Downtown Kingsport. In New York, there were bagel stores everywhere you went, conveniently placed for you to pick up a breakfast sandwich in the morning or stop in during a lunch break. As a captain on the NYPD, fresh, warm, New York bagels were just a daily part of life.
We are excited to be able to bring New York bagels to Downtown Kingsport, along with a relaxing place to enjoy our coffee or use our free Wi-Fi. Our bagels will be baked fresh daily in the front of the store for all to see and for you to enjoy.
