Suffolk-based family run bagel business Bagel or Beigel thrives in spite of pandemic uncertainty

Each bagel is unique, which is a counter to the highly uniform, plastic-wrapped bagels found on supermarket shelves. The current menu comprises: Plain, Cheese and Tomato, Canadian Maple Bacon, Wholemeal Everything, Olive and Rosemary with Himalayan Pink Salt and Cracked Black Pepper, Jalapeno and Cheese, and Chocolate Chip. Each of these flavours are available in a vegan version, with vegan cheese and bacon used as tasty substitutes.
The bagels are available in packs of 13, or in smaller 'Picnic Boxes' or four or eight. The picnic boxes include a delectable, complementary pairing of cold salt beef, homemade pickles, and homemade horseradish mustard. Also available are Pizza Bites - bagels topped with homemade sauce, homemade salt beef or vegan bacon, and strong mature cheddar cheese or vegan cheese.
Avi hand delivers freshly made bagels to Suffolk-based customers with the help of his nine-year-old daughter, Poppy. Orders are also open to customers based outside Suffolk, with a courier service delivering carefully packaged half-baked bagels for customers to finish off in the oven, or freeze for later.
