Our story. It all started on the 4th of February 2015, in Campo de Ourique, a district of Lisbon where we decided to open our first Bagel Shop named Raffi’s Bagels.
Our aim was to look into our family and cultural heritage to share some of the recipes that have been passed on from generation to generation. We chose to produce our bagels ourselves to make sure that the quality, taste and freshness of our products are always up to the highest standards.
Our production process and philosophy. We produce our bagels in Portugal in our own bakery, and follow a traditional family recipe. Our bagels are free from conservatives and additives. We tested our recipe over three months to adapt to the conditions of climate, equipment and ingredients we find in Portugal until we arrived at the original taste and texture, emblematic of New York City. We give the same attention to all the products we make in our bakery always respecting the traditional recipes and ancient know-how.
