Are your bagels boiled?
Yes! We boil them in a malted barley bath before baking them. Read more about our process here.
What flavor bagels do you carry?
We always carry 6-8 flavors -- 6 core flavors offered every week (poppy, sesame, everything, plain, onion, pretzel) and 1-2 rotating specialty flavors like beet (Wednesdays) and pumpernickel (Weekends). We're working hard to expand our offerings, so hang in there for us!
Are your bagels vegan?
Yes they are! (Unless otherwise noted, like our cheesy bagels.) We also offer a cashew-based vegan "cheese" that we make fresh in house weekly!
are you kosher?
No. We make some Jewish Deli staples, like chopped liver and babka, because they are delicious and we tip our hat to their culture.
do you make/plan on making gluten-free bagels?
We have no plans to introduce a gluten-free bagel. Bagels require hi-gluten flour, and we can't guarantee that any goods produced in our kitchen are 100% wheat/gluten free.
Why are you closed on mondays and tuesdays?
Because we have one team who works full time, around 45 hours per week, to make this magic happen. Our owner works 6 days a week. It takes a lot to keep Rebelle alive early in the game and we need rest, like all humans, Thanks for understanding.
can you accommodate allergies?
We do our best to handle food allergies safely, but we are not an allergen-free facility. If you let us know about your allergy, we'll guide you through the menu and make sure your food is prepared on a freshly cleaned and sanitized surface. The kitchen also takes care to avoid cross-contamination during the baking process.
I have an event coming up. Do you take special orders?
As of September 2017, we're taking special orders with a $50 minimum. To see the menu and place an order for pick-up, click here. Delivery available in the East Side and Downtown areas of Providence.
what's with your prices?
We believe you get what you pay for. High quality ingredients, artisanal techniques and doing business with integrity all add up to the prices you see on the menu. We work exclusively with King Arthur flour, a pricey alternative but one we love for its consistent quality and superior taste. We source our coffee from local roaster Borealis Coffee Company, paying a premium for outstanding coffee. We don't rely on minimum-wage workers or unpaid interns to run our kitchen and serve your bagels. We chose not to have a machine that rolls and spits out hundreds of bagels a day and we don't have a steam oven to bypass the boiling process, so we pay skilled members of our community a decent wage to get it done. We want to continue supporting local producers, paying fair wages (and always moving that goalpost in favor of our team!), and giving our customers the best possible product we can make. If you support how we do business, visit us often!
