From an email:

Bullfrog Bagels unleashed a little bit of bagel hysteria when founder Jeremiah Cohen began selling his bagels for two weekends in June.

The bagel-maker returns, this time at CakeLove’s 1506 U St. NW location from July 17 through 27. Flavors include everything, onion, poppy seed, sesame, and plain—all for $1.50 each or $18 per baker’s dozen. Bullfrog also offers bialys plus three types of cream cheese, new smoked whitefish salad, Scottish-style smoked salmon, and pastrami-crusted smoked salmon.

All pre-orders must be placed on Bullfrog’s new online ordering system.

Stay tuned post pop-up for a permanent location in the fall with an expanded menu.

For now (the next two weeks) please pre-order your bagels or come on by to our friends at CakeLove at the U Street location and purchase them in person!

    Queue debates over which neighborhood needs / wants them most…

  • Every prayer has just been answered…bagels w/in walking distance :)

  • Why has it taken bagel makers so long to realize the insane demand for quality bagels in DC?! This is huge news, but the demand in this town could easily support multiple locations. I hope others follow suit. I, of course, would he partial to a bagel place in Columbia Heights or Petworth. Mmmmm….

    • Shitty water in DC. Garbage in, garbage out.

      • justinbc

        What major city in the US has good water?

      • Wrong. It’s not that DC has “shitty water.” It’s just that NYC’s water has some unique characteristics (minerals, etc.) that many believe is needed to make great bagels.

        • I’m sorry, but DC has garbage water. Take a cup of DC tap water and let it evaporate. You’ll have a white chalky residue coating the glass. I’ve never had that with water in NYC, Los Angeles, or San Francisco. The only place I saw that was when I lived in Beijing (and even there you have fresh bottled drinking &cooking water delivered to your apartment every week). The water here in DC is truly awful.

            Wow, that’s some hard hitting science you’re using there in your determination of DC’s water quality. That disgusting, garbage residue is called “minerals,” They’re naturally found in our water supply, like “calcium” and “magnesium.” You’re correct in that they make your water garbage, and basically the same as drinking the run off from a Manilla landfill. Also, it will make your bagels taste terrible and your children become gay and/or republican (the water knows which one your secretly fear).

        • That’s such a huge myth. It’s not the water. Trust me, there are plenty of lousy bagels in New York, too.

  • Sweet – just ordered some bagels for Saturday morning! Will surprise my girlfriend – she’s a HUGE bagel snob ;)

  • Accountering

    Just order 7 for the office for Friday morning. This will be a SOLID choice after Brew at the Zoo Thursday evening.

  • This is a perfect location for Upshur close to the Soldier’s Home because people will go out of their way for good bagels, the rent will be cheaper, and single family households will buy in bulk for the week.

  • AWESOME. i’ve ordered from them twice and the bagels are stellar.

  • I keep trying to place my order and it says ‘outside business hours’ when I go to check out…???

  • That bagel place in Union Market has equally good fresh bagels, and you don’t have to wait in line or pre-order them.

    • i dunno, i think buffalo & bergen’s are fine when they are fresh out of the oven because how could they not be? The taste doesn’t hold up once frozen and thawed. they just like bread…kinda plasticky. such is the problem with most bagels in the area. i like bullfrog’s because they are so well seasoned, crisp, and perfectly sized. i think they are worth pre-ordering, but they’ll definitely be worth a stop once the shop opens.

  • Break out the hula hoop it’s time for the tasty toroid dance!

  • These better be some really good bagels. They don’t even cut you a break on pricing if you get a dozen. Back in CT at the best bagel spot you got a a Baker’s Dozen + 1 (14 total) for 11 bucks.

    • Uh, yes, they do. 13 x 1.5 = 19.5, which is less than 18. It’s great that CT has cheaper bagels, but I’m pretty sure it would cost me more than $7 round trip to go there and back.

  • Eastern market location please!!

  • msmaryedith

    Anyone know what the hours will be at the CakeLove popup? I don’t see it on the website or release but I’m probably overlooking it…

  • Bullfrog should come out Rhode Island Ave! They can set up in the same strip as Zeke’s Coffee and my weekend mornings will never be the same again. I agree that people will go out of their way for good bagels and on that note, I hope they seek to serve as a cornerstone in a unique/up and coming neighborhood- DC has plenty of them!

  • Intrigued by this line:

    “7. All orders will be picked up at 1506 U Street NW (presently the site of CakeLove.)”

    Wonder what “presently” is referring to?
    Maybe this will be the future home of Bullfrog??

    • Well, the one in Silver Spring went belly up, so maybe U Street CakeLove will be no more, also.

    • CakeLove on U Street is NOT closing! We are excited to share our kitchen with Bullfrog Bagels through July 29 and can’t wait to enjoy their scrumptious bagels. CakeLove will have the full menu available and regular store hours throughout the popup and after. Grab your bagels and a cupcake or Cake in a Jar at this one-stop shop!

  • omg omg omg just open in the former Pulp space already

  • These will have to be pretty good for our family to switch from Baked by Yael. She offers them by special order from time to time and it’s to the point that we order four dozen each time and keep them in the freezer.
