- Nov 12, 2013View SourceFrom Kikar Shabbat, have your back toward Mea Sha'arim, and face Malchei Yisrael. There is a bank (HaPoalim?)on the corner at Kikar Shabbat.Naomi,Brunch Bagel is, if my memory serves me well, on a side street called Ezer Yoldot. Here's how you'd find it:Walk past the bank and turn LEFT at the very first little side street you encounter, which is Ezer Yoldot.This street is a little bit steep going uphill. Walk up this hill a bit and Brunch Bagel will be on the LEFT side of the street with a RED sign.Now, if you DO go back to see if it is still there, please report to us if you do find it. And, if you sample their bagels, of course, we'll want your opinion on them, too.Marcia fromMa'ale AdumimOn Tue, Nov 12, 2013 at 8:54 AM, Naomi Horowitz <pleasesmile90@...> wrote:where in geulah?

Very popular with an American-Israeli crowd which, at least, shops in the Geula/Mea Sha'arim area.Marcia fromMa'ale AdumimOn Mon, Nov 11, 2013 at 4:12 PM, Naomi Horowitz <pleasesmile90@...> wrote:how can you say regulach in israel are not rugelach - those are real!!!! The American ones are fake cop-outs.
Aside from the fact I got some bagesl from Sam's bagels in geulah yesterday - while they may not be my favorite, they def. pass for good enough...

Subject: Re: [israel-food] Re: as the bagel discussion "rolls" on...I have been silently reading.May I enter this discussion?I have tasted bagels in Montreal, Brooklyn, etc.None compared to a tiny bakery up in Mountaindale New York in the late 50'sBy the way, the bagels were much smaller than what is sold today under the stolenname of bagel. These are not bagels.And why dont we continue with the aberration of the rugelach that is sold here.It does not look like a rugelach, does not smell like a rugelach, does not tastelike a rugelach, and the texture is all wrong.Gavriela
