Bagel makers always brag about the process, but the fact is that bagels are boiled. Boiling water is boiling water. The how it's boiled makes little difference. If they aren't boiled, they aren't bagels. What makes the difference in bagels is first, the recipe, and second the craftsmanship.

This is the difference between small bagel makers and huge chains, like Einstein. The chain's fixings are made and bagged in huge commissaries, and you can forget about craftsmanship. They hire kids at minimum wage, the same people who work in the local Mickey Ds.

That said, the Spielman people need to be aware of growing too big and they seem intent on getting as large as they are able. My advice, get in while they're small because if they get too big, they'll start looking for the efficiencies that will ruin the product.

Gonna have to look them up, I have been raving good bagels. And maybe some schmear, but not Philadelphia, thanks to that jackass on the adverts. Nancys does make a very nice cream cheese!

I'm not sure where you live Jann, but I think the NE Broadway location, at 2200, is probably the closest to you.

The one in the picture is in Multnomah Village. There are also shops cater-corner from Good Samaritan Hospital and on SE Division at 2111. All the stores are open from 7 am until 2 pm.

You can also check this webpage (https://www.spielmanbagels.com/our-vendors) and it'll tell you the 3rd party sellers in Portland. One of them could be closer to you.

Good luck.

Lox, cream cheese and an Everything bagel, my dream. I'll look for Nancy's CC, and check out Spielman's.

Thank you, Joel, Division is cloest. I will have to remember the Good Sam one, as well, my dr is on NW 23rd and Northrup, when I go. Grants Phillies right across the street, too.. Im in West Cully.

The Good Sam Spieleman's is on Lovejoy, just west of 23rd on the south side of the street. It used to be a little convenience store.

We may go to the same doctor...or at least the same office if you go to the Good Sam Clinic.

My dr is NW corner, Northrup on 23d, parking behind, I used to go to the one on 22d, 2d floor. If the convenience store used to be Lovejoy Grocery, I used to drive down often and grab a soda, and a load of their fresh, wonderful baklava. I miss that.

Nope. I'm across the street at the Legacy Good Sam Clinic. I see four docs with offices on 22nd. Getting old is so much fun. You get to meet so many interesting people.

Yes, I think it was the Lovejoy Grocery. I haven't had baklava in years. All that honey is murder on the blood sugar.
