With locations across the city, a Glick’s bakery is never too far away when you need a bagel fix. The family-run bakery chain has been a favourite of Melbourne’s Jewish community and bagel lovers alike for nearly 40 years, offering affordable kosher baked goods, dips and salads for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The renowned boiled bagels come in sweet and savoury varieties and can be accompanied by different toppings and spreads. The ‘Everything’ bagel, with smoked salmon, cream cheese and capers, is sumptuous and more-ish, and a steal at under $10.
On Fridays, join the queue and grab a challah – a sweet brioche-like bread that Jewish families eat with Sabbath dinners. Really, any excuse will do to abandon the anti-carb rhetoric and embrace the simple and filling food that has made Glick’s a Melbourne institution.
