In 1972, my husband Milton and I decided to leave the hustle and bustle of Queens, New York, and move our bagel baking operation, along with our family, to what was then the sleepy town of Hallandale, Florida. In 1973, Sage Bagel and Appetizer became a reality. We were a small store, just bagels and and appetizing case, and a simple theory on quality. If an item wasn't exceptional, we wouldn't sell it.
Forty years later, our formula has not changed. Of course, we've now expanded into a full service deli and restaurant, though our commitment to excellence has not waned. Our smoked fish is of the highest quality, all of our soups and prepared foods are made the way my mother taught me, and our bagels are made the same way they've always been, still our most popular item after all these years.
Some think it strange that we still make most everything from scratch, without fillers or shortcuts, but this is the way we have always done it, and will continue to do. "Just as good" just isn't. So stop by sometime, whether you're picking up for a nice Sunday breakfast, or just a nosh in the restaurant. Sit, Eat, and Enjoy.
