Bagels are having a moment in Perth right now. Firstly, there’s Deli Gabe, which opened on Murray Street late last year. Launched by Alex, a chef who’s worked in fine dining restaurants in Sydney and Perth, Deli Gabe is all about bringing you positive vibes and nutritious, delicious meals every day. Serving bagels, toasties and breakfast, their dishes feature classic flavours with fun twists - there’s tom yum scrambled eggs, a tuna melt with kimchi and a bacon & egg bagel with gochujang maple. 

Secondly, there’s Neighbourhood Bagel on the corner of St Georges Terrace and King Street, with New York City retro diner vibes. Eight is the magic number here: choose your combo from eight bagel options and eight cream cheese flavours (that makes 64 possibilities!) for just $8. You could go savoury (like a parmesan and thyme bagel with sun-dried tomato and olive schmear) or sweet (blueberry on blueberry… yes please). After something more substantial? Filled bagels range from $15 to $19, with options like Reuben and buffalo chicken.
