Brown Bag Bagels, LLC

About Us

Growing up in New Jersey, the owner of Brown Bag Bagels, LLC regularly enjoyed NYC style bagels.  Norm moved to North Carolina in 1994 to attend Campbell University, and with the exception of a few year stint in Michigan, has lived in Wake County, NC ever since.  The birth of Brown Bag Bagels stems not only out of his love of fresh baked NYC style bagels, but the lack of their availability in the area.  Our mission is to bring authentic NYC style bagels to Clayton, Smithfield, Eastern Wake County and the surrounding area.  

We are family owned and operated. Our mobile food restaurant is equipped to provide your next event with fresh baked bagels and breakfast bagel sandwiches and great coffee. 


Our bagels are made in small batches to ensure maximum freshness. We do not use preservatives of any kind.  Our base ingredients are simply flour, yeast, water, malt and salt.  In true NYC fashion, we hand roll, boil and bake our bagels.  We do not ship in our dough.  We do not buy pre-made or par-baked bagels. We do not use machines to make the holes in our bagels.  We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
