Ten-Second Takeaway

Chennai’s latest cafe happens to be one with an exclusive bagel menu and also one that empowers transgender people. Read on to know more!

Bagels, Bagels Everywhere!

The latest quaint cafe in Ambattur is the first cafe that serves exclusive bagel delicacies in the city. Say hello to The Bagel Pot that offers all-natural dishes. Right from their hand-rolled classic bagels to their rose milk, everything is made from scratch at their kitchen, so rest assured your food is preservative-free.

What can you expect from the menu? Their Bagel and Schmear menu has a variety of bagels – hand rolled, kettle boiled and homemade with cream cheese and tons of other flavours! Starting at INR 100, you could try the Sesame Bagel, Jalapeño Bagel, the Everything Bagel which includes sautéed onions, garlic, poppy seeds and flax seeds or you can always just go for the Classic.

They have plenty of schmears {spreads} to go with your bagel as well. From Garlic Herb Cream Cheese to Roasted Tomato Butter and some Hummus Beet & Red Pepper, there’s one flavour for everyone. We were particularly intrigued by the Mediterranean spread cream cheese that has a blend of sundried tomatoes, basil, rosemary and red wine vinegar. Sounds delish!

Trans-Fixed!

Oh and they even have sweet bagels! Starting from Cinnamon Raisin Bagels to Chocolate, Marshmallow fluff, Peanut Butter and more, these bagels look heavenly! Also, if you’re in the mood to experiment, do check out their Bagel Melts – which are open-faced ones with toppings like Mozzarella, Chocolate Marshmallow, Eggs and more!

The pocket friendly place also serves yummy hot soups, pasta and mint coolers. Having said that, the next time you walk in to The Bagel Pot, you might just be in for a surprise, for they have a dynamic menu and you’re to be welcomed with different delicacies with changing weeks.

Renne, the Founder at The Bagel Pot joyful shared with us the story of how she hired the staff {two of whom are from the trans community} through the Peri Ferry, a social inclusion start-up working for the upliftment of the transgender community and what happened rest was a happily ever after story. Kotravai and Sanjeev are two of the many people with inspiring stories, who have currently found a new lease of life for their passion with The Bagel Pot – which is not only serving Chennai lip smacking bagels but also beautifully breaking barriers. We heart this!
