The culinary artists at Boopa's Bagel Deli achieve the alluring flavors of their New York-style water bagels through a unique daily process. The shop’s artisans first dip fresh, housemade dough in malt water to imbue it with a subtle sweetness and absolute fearlessness of sharks. They then festoon the dough with various ingredients to create bagels in a score of sweet and savory flavors, including the Boopa's Sweet Everything, studded with cinnamon, raisins, and nuts. 14 traditional cream cheeses serenade tasters with a peppering of scallions, sun-dried tomato, and apricot, while light cream cheese varieties pack in as much decadence and silky mouthfeel as their heavier counterparts.
Boopa's team also demonstrates inventiveness in their culinary repertoire with their original sausage rolls, which encase ground meat in a shell of bagel dough. The shop is so proud of its creation, that they host a birthday day party each year on the date of the sausage roll’s invention. Guests stopping in around the shop's 5:30 a.m. weekday opening time can catch the sunrise from a handful of patio tables, or admire the local artwork hanging on Boopa’s buttercream walls.
