new outpost of Bergen Bagels at 285 Court Street, at the corner of Douglass Street, seems to be coming along nicely. The walls have been tiled and the refrigeration equipment moved into this very large storefront. I was able to pop my head in yesterday to asked the name of this new establishment, but the construction workers did not know. However, an internet search revealed a page for "Cobble Hills Bagels" at that address.
Carroll Gardens actually needs a good bagel store. Bagels By The Park just never cut it, as far as I was concerned and (F) Line Bagels at 9th Street is just too far away.
Where have you been buying your bagels in the neighborhood? Are you looking forward to a new option?
Number 285 Court Street used to be a paint store for many years. The storefront has remained empty for quite a while. The building was sold for $2,3000.000 in June 2012.
