New Shop Opening Soon!

We are very happy to report that we will be opening our first permanent shop in the heart of Del Ray at
2307A Mt. Vernon Avenue

We are working through city permitting and hope to open our doors to glutenistas soon.

Doors will open daily at 7am.

C’mon over for a baker’s dozen, a bagel with a schmear, or a B.L.C. (bagel, lox, cream cheese).

Yum? Yes!


About the Uprising


I have a confession.  I didn’t eat my first bagel until I was 12, and I did it all wrong:  grocery store bagel, toasted, with peanut butter, in Denver.  But it was awesome, and I was hooked.

After leaving Denver I experienced bagel utopia for about 10 years in New York City, and then I moved to Del Ray, a neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.  The local bagels were acceptable, but they didn’t live up to the real thing.  So I set out to fill the void.  Over time and with feedback from carb-loving family and friends, I came up with a recipe that does a pretty good job.  (And, because I knew you’d ask: No.  The secret is not the water.)

I use only five ingredients: flour, yeast, salt, malt, and brown sugar.  Like traditional bagels, Bagel Uprising bagels aren’t huge: no 800-calorie monsters the size of a hubcap.  And no fancy flavors, either.  Just the classics:

Everything, Sesame, Poppy, Salt & Plain.

(And cinnamon which, while tasty, is a bit of a moral lapse.)


Bagel Uprising launched at the Four Mile Run Farmers and Artisans Market in September 2015, and is working on permitting for its permanent outpost at 2307A Mt. Vernon Avenue, Alexandria.
