We’re in the midst of a food revolution here in Brooklyn, and across the country. More and more people are awakening to the value and pleasure of real, handcrafted fare, and the importance of supporting small businesses. Our culture is shifting to a place where authenticity and quality are just as important as, or maybe even more than, big brand names and cheap prices. Mom & Pop shops are finally getting their chance to shine, and the foodies of Brooklyn have spoken: local is better!
When you dine at a locally owned and operated shop, you’re supporting someone’s dream. You’re putting food on the table for a hardworking family, and keeping the spirit of entrepreneurship alive. It’s been said that every dollar you spend is a vote for the kind of world that you want, and dropping those dollars at small, local restaurants and bakeries is a meaningful way to keep your neighborhood alive! Plus, you’ll know that it’s money well spent, every time that you walk in and are greeted like family, and savor the hot, fresh breakfast sandwich that was handmade just for you.
If you want to be a part of the local food revolution, it’s actually pretty simple. Just ask around. Big business can try to commodify food all they want, but the locals of Brooklyn know where to go to find the good stuff. And it’s often right around the corner! Here at the Brooklyn Original Bagel Store, we love our community and are passionate about serving delicious, artisanal food for all of our customers. Come on down and give us a try!
