The Rocket Store welcomes a bagel bar to its ranks

Best Ugly Bagels have just let slip that they'll be supplying their creations at the Ponsonby coffee haven.

Changing up our midweek lunch routine in the most glorious manner, the good folk over at Best Ugly Bagels have just let slip that they will now be supplying their tasty creations to The Rocket Store. Dishing up their beloved bagels in an intriguing range of flavours, there’s something to please every palate.

The classic jam and cream cheese will surely stave off the sugar hankerings, as will the more adventurous Nutella, banana and hokey pokey iteration. On the savoury side of things, a kale pesto, tomato and cream cheese bagel sounds like a winner, but the whipped feta, beet pickle and walnut bagel or the classic salmon, cream cheese and caper delight are just as tempting. The perfect brekkie or lunch when paired with a barista-made Atomic coffee, the Ponsonby Road haunt is sure to become a weekday staple.

Open Monday to Friday 7am–4.30pm, Saturday & Sunday 8am–4.30pm.
