Get your bagel fix at BB’s Bagels — the new grab-and-go bagel shop from the team behind Domo Bakery

Soft, fluffy, and impossibly fresh bagels are what you’ll find at BB’s Bagels, the tasty new bagel shop in the heart of Ponsonby from the team behind Takapuna’s much-loved Domo Bakery. From sweet to savoury to Soy Mochi and more, here you’ll find something sure to satisfy, with a number of cult classics and novel takes on offer.

On any given day, you’ll find an incredible array of unique and inventive bagels on the counter, as well as a four-strong savoury made-to-order menu covering the classics, from salmon and cream cheese with red onion, capers, and dill, to a delicious-looking corned beef iteration with mozzarella, cheddar, onion and a special burger sauce. On the sweet side of things, from what we’ve seen, flavours are ever-evolving, but the matcha bagel has our attention, as does the pistachio, and the blueberry is a delight both to behold and enjoy.

And while the menu clearly has an American influence, the clever team at BB’s Bagels have woven in a Japanese slant too, with the likes of Soy Cream Mochi on the menu (for those not familiar, Mochi is a cult Japanese dessert that sees pounded sticky rice in the shape of a sphere filled with ice cream, and it’s phenomenal), alongside Hojicha (a roasted Japanese tea leaf), Black Sesame, and a tasty Yuzu number.

There are also more decadent options on offer, from Biscoff to whipped feta, scallion and cream cheese, with more to join the line up next week. When it comes to the drinks, there’s fresh coffee, as well as matcha, hojicha, and a stunning, bright purple ube latte.

The American influence is clear in the fit-out, too, with green and white check detailing throughout. Floors are rendered in unfussy polished concrete, with pared-back, mismatched wooden seating spanning several small tables, benches, and one larger communal table inside, with bench seats in the front window and outside to perch and watch the world go by.

From what we’ve seen so far, and given the clever team on the tools, BB’s Bagels is a new spot that is well worthy of your attention. And given the inclement weather ahead, we can’t think of anything better than a tasty, satisfying bagel to quell the winter blues.

Opening hours:
Tuesday to Sunday, 8.30am until 2.30pm
