About Uncle Bagel


In the beginning.

Inspired by New York bagel history, Uncle Bagel creates straight up, authentic bagels full of character and good vibes.

My name is Tom and I am Uncle Bagel. It all began in 2014 when due to to ill health I had to take a year off work. During this time I faced many painful and difficult challenges. It was my sister who suggested I start baking bagels, and it was the baking that helped me during my darkest moments. My niece and nephew called me Uncle Bagel when I gave them my home baked creations, and so it began.

The universe gave me bagels, and in the spirit of being in the flow, I went with what life gave me. Uncle Bagel is the story of turning adversity into a blessing. I love bagels. They really do work miracles.
