Best Ugly Bagels are baked fresh every day in the heart of Auckland city and Wellington. The bagels are Montreal-style bagels that are hand rolled and cut, then simmered in sweet honey water. They’re then placed into a custom-made, Manuka-fired stone oven, toasted and served piled with your choice of classic toppings. There’s even a gluten free option, and a chocolate bagel.
Favourites on the menu include the tuna melt – tuna, mayo, salsa fresca, jalapenos, lemon zest with grilled tasty cheddar 15.9, and the holey Smoke made with smoked fish, crème fraiche, lemon zest rocket sauce, and parsley.
You can also buy a packet of bagels in store to take home with you.
Montreal Bagels: Montreal-style bagels are not bagels that have been as simply been thrown in a circular-shaped dough into an oven. These bagels have an airy texture and are not dense like their southern relations. Montreal bagels also exhibit a slightly sweet edge, and unlike the New York variety, they contain no salt!
