So in honor of the St. Louis Jewish Light’s new Bagel Week celebration, here is our Ultimate Guide to St. Louis Homemade Bagels.

The bagel. Is it simplicity or complexity that has allowed the bagel to endure for centuries and become a staple of Jewish cuisine? Perhaps both.

The bagel traces its history back to 1600s Europe, arriving in the United States along with Eastern European immigrants in the late 19th century. In the 1970s, the Lenders family began marketing their brand of bagels nationwide, but the homemade bagel still had a place in the hearts of millions, especially American Jews.

Locally, Jewish St. Louisans had much to choose from when looking for homemade bagels over the years. Purveyors such as Petrofsky’s Bakery, Marlin Klein’s New York Bagelry in Bridgeton, Leonard, Jesse, and Kenneth’s New York Bagelry in the old Jeffrey Plaza, Basically Bagels in the Central West End and until recently the Bagel Factory in Creve Coeur.

While our bagel history may be bleak, our bagel future remains strong. In 2023 alone, three new bagel shops will be open by summer, adding to an impressive group of bagel makers already with years of experience under their belts.
