We know how hard it is to resist the temptation of freshly baked, warm bagels in the morning. That’s why we offer a monthly subscription service that delivers a selection of our most popular bagels right to your doorstep. 

Bagels are available either as one-time orders as well as by subscriptions (every 4 weeks). Our hand-rolled bagels are available in a variety of flavors, from classic plain and everything to more unique options like roasted garlic and Maine blueberry. You can customize your order to include your favorite flavors, or mix it up and try something new each order.

Not only are our bagels delicious, but they are also made with high-quality ingredients and baked to perfection. You can enjoy them as a tasty breakfast or use them to make sandwiches for lunch. The possibilities are endless!

With our monthly bagel subscription, you’ll never have to worry about running out of bagels again. Sign up today and start receiving your fresh bagels every 4 weeks. Trust us, your taste buds (and stomach) will thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Ordering and subscription management

Our bagels are packaged by the half dozen. You can select different two flavors to make up a dozen, but at this time we’re unable to manage individual bagel mix-and-match.

Yes! If you have a multi-month subscription, you’ll be reminded by email each month to choose your bagel flavors. Submit your selections no later than 2 days before the baking date. If you do not submit selections, we’ll use the most recent order’s selection.

Knead & Nosh bagels are hand-rolled the day prior to baking. Then they spend the night in a cool environment for a cold-fermentation to develop better flavor and texture! In order to bake you the best bagels, we have to allow enough time!

So, new orders or changes to flavors need to completed at least 2 days prior to the baking date. For subscribers, I will send you a link to an online form that you can use to submit flavor selections each month. If you don’t submit the form, I’ll send you the same flavors that you received the previous month.

Local pick ups start at 10AM at MidCoast Hunger Prevention Program’s facility at 179 Neptune Drive, located on the former naval base. For detailed instructions, GPS links, and more, please see the Pick Ups page!

Bagel Basics

Whether your bagels were shipped or you pick them up freshly baked in Maine, it’s best to freeze your bagels.

The best way to refresh bagels if you’ve received them in the mail or you’ve frozen them is to reheat them in a 425°F oven. Before placing them in the oven, spray them with some water. If the bagels are not topped like a Plain bagel, you can even dunk them in a bowl of water before placing them into a hot oven. Let them reheat for 6-8 minutes (from frozen)/4-6 minutes (from room temp). This should refresh the crust and heat it through without toasting it further.

If you intend to toast the bagel, then allow it to defrost in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature for about an hour, then slice and toast. While some believe it to be blasphemy, you can microwave a frozen bagel for about 15-25 seconds to defrost them enough to slice then toast. You’ll need to experiment with your microwave to determine the best timing. You want the bagel in the microwave only long enough to defrost it. If the bagel is warm or hot after microwaving, you cooked it too long!

Never attempt to slice a frozen bagel!

Knead & Nosh bagel ingredients vary depending on the flavor. To see each flavor’s nutritional label including ingredients and allergen information, please see here.
