Don’t let the name fool you – R & R Bagels isn’t just for grabbing a bagel and coffee on the go. Instead, think about a fun, new way to cater office meetings (buh-bye, boring lectures!), a delicious, satisfying assortment for any event, or a yummy junk boat trip picnic (yes, please!).
R & R’s deliciously chewy bagels are hand-rolled according to its own in-house recipe, and are heavenly when slathered with one of its whipped cream cheeses or stuffed with fresh ingredients as part of its mouth-watering bagel sandwiches. Its menu also offers crunchy salads and hummus boxes – perfect for when you’re looking for a lighter bite!
The Catering Bundles are delivered straight to your door (or junk boat!) and include a selection of bagel sandwiches, bagels and spreads and options to add cookies, brownies and muffins too (we can tell you from experience, the brownies are every chocoholics dream!). You can even make your own bundle. If you’re a repeat or regular customer (um, who isn’t?) discounts are offered, so it’s a win-win!
