You may not be aware of this, but people have a lot of opinions about bagels. Recently at TS there has been a lot of controversy about bagels.
Every morning that we serve breakfast after minyan (Monday to Friday and not on statutory holidays), there are bagels. The bagels used to come from a particular Toronto establishment that delivered them to us. Then this establishment stopped delivering.
TS sourced the bagels from a caterer. Calling these doughy items bagels is being quite generous in this rabbi’s opinion. What followed can only be described as the bagel wars.
Congregants were phoning complaining. They wanted their bagels back and then wanted them back now.
Do not mess with Jews and their bagels.
In order to determine what bagels were most popular and could best serve the needs of TS members (and this is without going into the whole Montreal v. Toronto bagel dilemma). We’ve sampled Gryfe’s, What-a-Bagel, and starting today, Bagel World.
Where do you get your favorite bagels?
