Exodus Bagels to Open Retail Shop in Former Canto 6 Space in Jamaica Plain

Last summer, we reported that a local business featuring authentic New York-style bagels was planning to open a brick-and-mortar place in Roslindale. Now we have learned that the plans have changed a bit, and the retail shop will be replacing a now-closed bakery in Jamaica Plain.

According to an article from Universal Hub (via a Facebook post from the business), Exodus Bagels is now looking to open a shop on Washington Street in the former Canto 6 space, with the McCraw Street space in Roslindale that was originally to have been home to a diner, deli, and bagel shop continuing on as their commercial kitchen. No opening date for the store has been given as of yet, so stay tuned for updates.

Canto 6 shut down in August of 2016 after approximately 10 years in business; its closure took place two months after Exodus Bagels announced its initial plans to open a shop in Roslindale.

The address for the upcoming retail shop for Exodus Bagels is 3346 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain, MA, 02130. The website for the company can be found at

[February 10, 2018 update: An Instagram post from the business indicates that Exodus Bagels gives a sneak peek of its new space in Jamaica Plain with free bagels and cheese tomorrow (Sunday, February 11), with its official opening taking place on Tuesday, February 13--and that it is also still looking to open a shop on McCraw Street space in Roslindale at some point in time (that space is also being used for food production).]
