New bagel shop in town! At the old Sausage Factory
Brooklyn Brothers Bagels was founded with one goal in mind: to bring the iconic taste of Brooklyn, New York to the beautiful island of Ambergris Caye. Joe and Vinny Summa chose Belize as their vacation spot of choice as far back as 1988. The scuba diving, beach-side hang out spots, and laid-back local culture established Ambergris Caye as their location of choice, but even in an island paradise they couldn’t help but miss the taste of home. Now, Brooklyn Brothers Bagels is opening its doors to supply any and all wholesale locations on the island of Ambergris Caye, because the taste of Brooklyn bagels is too good to leave in the small borough of Brooklyn.
Open Monday to Saturday 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
Phone number: 226 – 2222
Their storefront is located in San Pablo area in the old Sausage Factory building next to Caye Coffee. Walk drive or taxi south of downtown about a mile or so. Not long after you make the left turn past the gas station, look for Marina’s turquoise store on your left. Take a right turn just before the store, follow the road till the end and make a left – you cannot miss it.
As I mentioned above I already knew I was going for a sandwich this time around. More specifically ham and Swiss on a garlic and toasted onion bagel fully loaded with lettuce, tomato, mustard and mayo. Anyone who has been to Ambergris Caye knows, unless you make it yourself, it is a challenge to find a good sandwich on the island. Both Jack and I agreed, this one definitely passed the test – he ordered the same with a different bagel choice. We finished off with a yummy spiced cookie for dessert, it was the icing that got me craving it. Linda told us that it was one of her mom’s recipes.Click here
