A Vegan-Friendly Bagel and Pizza Shop Is Opening in Highland Park This Fall

Bagel+Slice is a taste of New York in Los Angeles!

Do you love bagels? Do you love pizza? Do you wish you could order both items from the same place? Well, you’ll be able to do that very soon because a vegan-friendly bagel and pizza shop is opening in Highland Park this fall.

Scratch-Made Bagels, Pizza Pies, and Pizza Slices With Plenty of Vegan Options

Positioned on the oh-so-popular York Boulevard, Bagel+Slice’s “coming soon” sign has caught the attention of those passing by for several months. But what exactly is coming soon? Scratch-made bagels, pizza pies, and pizza slices with plenty of vegan options!

The Bagel+Slice team adheres to the strict bagel-making standards set about 100 years ago by the Local 338 Bagel Bakers Union. The process includes forming the bagels by hand, boiling them, and baking them on a burlap-lined board in a hearth oven. After that, the bagels are decked out in flavor-specific seasonings, spreads, and toppings for customers to enjoy.


Bagel+Slice’s Vegan Pizza and Bagel Options

Bagel+Slice’s bagel, pizza, and gluten-friendly wheat doughs are completely vegan. The vegan bagel toppings range from avocado and nut-based cream cheese to shiitake bacon and vegan cheese. The vegan pizza toppings include classic vegan cheese, almond-based ricotta, and all sorts of veggies. In addition to Bagel+Slice’s vegan pizza and bagel options, the establishment will offer a vegan goddess salad with shiitake bacon as well as coffee and tea.

Bagel+Slice Is Owned by Blaze Pizza’s Head Chef, Brad Kent

Bagel+Slice is owned by Blaze Pizza’s head chef, Brad Kent. He’s been working as a chef and food scientist for the past 30 years, most of which has been spent perfecting New York-style bagel and pizza recipes. With all that came in 2020, Kent sought out a way to serve good food to a local community using sustainable methods which is what inspired Bagel+Slice.

Lowest Possible Prices for the Highest Quality Products

Bagel+Slice sources their ingredients from regenerative organic farms and the restaurant participates in a local composting program. On top of that, the employees are paid comfortable wages and the menu prices are set to be accessible to all. This includes students at Occidental College, who can use their dining cards at Bagel+Slice.

“We are committed to providing jobs for our community that pay better than minimum wage and hope to be able to offer exceptional employment benefits that would not normally be offered in a typical “small business.” We are also committed to charging the lowest possible prices for the highest quality products that incorporate premium ingredients to make our very familiar foods accessible to all. Our commitment to a lower profit margin ensures that we can provide affordable, high-quality meals for ALL our neighbors,” shared Kent.

Bagel+Slice is slated to open later this fall. Follow @bagelandslice on Instagram for the most recent updates.
