But these aren't NYC Bagels...

After spending 12 years in the culinary world, founder Sam Zeitlin realized that finding a quality East Coast-looking bagel in Chicago was tough.

Sam began experimenting with different recipes, drawing inspiration from the best bagel-making techniques throughout the country. He just wanted to make food people love.

Now his Bagels let you taste the comfort of home in just one bite.

Quality ingredients  and
proper times

Hand-crafted artisan recipes take time, as most menu items take multiple days to prepare. We don't take shortcuts.

All our products are prepared with the best ingredients, partnering with local vendors to ensure the best quality.

If you are seeking wholesome food in your life, Zeitlin's has you covered!

Sam has spent a lifetime in the culinary arts focusing on baking. He cooked for many Michelin-star restaurants and won the Star Chefs Rising Baker Award in 2021.

Hal, his younger brother, owns a low-code digital agency and brings the digital infrastructure needed to feed many mouths with only a small team in the kitchen.

Now, Sam and Hal are on a mission: to share their childhood favorites with Chicagoans of all backgrounds.
