Our Beginning

Nostalgia and a love for good food shaped the foundation of Born 2 Bagel. Rooted in the bustling streets of Long Island, New York, where bagels, delis, and diners reign supreme, we bring you a piece of that culinary delight here in Louisville, Kentucky.

Authentic New York-Style Bagels

The cornerstone of our business is our dedication to authenticity. We handcraft our bagels using traditional New York-style techniques, creating that perfect balance of a crisp exterior and a soft, chewy interior.

Homemade Recipes

Our menu is a testament to the culinary legacy that has been passed down in our family. From the lox to the eggs and homemade potato pancakes, all our dishes come straight from Gramma Ruth's secret recipe box.

Fresh Ingredients

We believe that the best-tasting bagels come from the best ingredients. That's why we source only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients for our bagels and other dishes. Our bagels aren't just made; they're born out of a commitment to quality.
