The Bagel Place Is Opening in Newton

A new bagel shop is on its way to the Boston area, and it appears to be a second location of a place located a few hours to the north.

According to a job post within the Craigslist site, The Bagel Place is opening in Newton, with the Needham Street shop apparently being an outlet of a store with the same name in South Burlington, VT. An article in The Other Paper mentions that the original location features bagels that are steamed rather than boiled "to impart that perfect combination of soft and chewy," and that the shop also offers coffee, baked goods, breakfast sandwiches, deli sandwiches, soups, and salads.

If all goes as planned, The Bagel Place could be opening in Newton sometime in November.

[December 7 update: According to a Facebook post from the shop, The Bagel Place should be opening in Newton in the next few weeks.]

[January 22, 2016 update: Eater Boston states that The Bagel Place opens in Newton on Monday (January 25).]

The address for this upcoming bagel shop in Newton is: The Bagel Place, 400 Needham Street, Newton, MA, 02464. The website for the original location can be found at
