Years ago I attended college in upstate New York and fell in love with the crusty, chewy goodness of the east coast bagel. We'd all go to the Bagel Grove (which is still there today) and nosh on toasty, cream cheese filled deliciousness. My weakness: salted bagel toasted with plain cream cheese.
Fast forward to 2014 and it literally just dawned on me one day: Scappoose needs a REAL bagel shop! With a certified kitchen, but no retail space, the first offering was a local delivery service. Week after week we sold dozens of bagels and delivered them to local Columbia County homes & offices. After a month or so, it was time to open up shop. Scappoose Bagel was born on November 13, 2014 in a small corner of Avenue 30. After only six months it was clear that we needed a bigger space! It was then that we transformed the old Spotlight offices into our own bagel shop. That is where you will find us today, providing fresh bagels, schmears & sandwiches all prepared right at the shop, Tuesday thru Saturday. Please stop by and enjoy a bagel or order ahead for your next office or family gathering!
