Official opening for new bagel spot on at 11928 San Vicente Boulevard
By Kerry Slater
A popular bagel shop known for its made-to-order “LA-style” bagels is opening a new location in Brentwood this weekend and has a soft-opening underway.
On Wednesday Pop’s Bagels announced on Instagram it is currently having a soft opening and will have their official opening this weekend.
“We are BEYOND excited to announce the soft opening of our Brentwood location!!! 11928 San Vicente Blvd 😍🤩 Come by and grab FRESH! HOT!! BAGELS!!! Before our official opening this weekend! We can’t wait to spread this bagel love to Brentwood!” reads the post.
The hours will be 7:30 a.m. -1p.m. on weekdays and 7:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. on weekends to start.
In addition, on Friday Pop’s bagels will be open this Friday May 21 as part of a soft opening from 7:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
There is nothing complicated about Pop’s bagels: just flour, yeast, LA water and organic barley. On their website, the eatery took aim at other bagels in LA in explaining their mission statement.
“Bagels in LA suck. There’s no debating this statement, it’s useless. Bagels here are just dense rolls of bread with a hole in the middle. Anytime anyone says they found a good bagel in LA they are really just talking about the various toppings i.e. salmon and veggies. We are here to change all of this,” they write. “Our bagels are light and chewy yet never dense like some NY bagels can be and they are always hot. We want to change the perception of the bagel in LA.”
Pop’s Bagels says they make everything from scratch, including homemade cream cheese and butters.
