I am so excited to be making my blog post about my Local Food Tour!
I want to support and visit local restaurants, bars, cafes and bakeries around the Buffalo area. During my tour, I will be sharing all the amazing things these establishments have to offer! This is my way of supporting businesses in my hometown while I get to enjoy delicious food and drinks along the way! I am going in alphabetical order with this food tour and I am already having so much fun with this!
For each stop, I will be sharing with you food/drinks, the service and the atmosphere! So let me share with you my visits so far:
A: Alchemy Wine & Beer
B: The Bagel Jar
A: Alchemy Wine & Beer
Alchemy Wine & Beer invited The Bagel Jar to have a popup where I was able to enjoy all different kinds of Bellinis with a flight of bagels! More about Alchemy:
Strawberry and Peach Bellini - the most refreshing Bellinis I could have had all day long! I knew by just looking at the bellinis that they used fresh strawberries to make it which made the drink so much more delicious and refreshing!
Everyone was so kind and patient with me while I made the hard decision - aka placing my crazy order!
Before you even walk in, you notice a beautifully painted mural. When I walked in I fell in love! I love the modern industrial vibe Alchemy has - they made it so cozy and homey feeling. With Covid restrictions, they have signs up that explain how to go about getting a table and ordering, which limited contact with their employees ensuring everyones safety!
Absolutely loved visiting Alchemy! Everyone there made it so enjoyable and fun; I can't wait to go back and enjoy some drinks again!
B: Bagel Jar
Have you ever heard of a flight for bagels??? This was my first time and let me tell you, I don't think I have ever been more excited to order a flight!
I enjoy too many kinds of bagels to have to choose just one - this bagel flight covered all my bagel cravings! My bagel flight included:
🥯 Cinnamon Raisin
🥯 Cinnamon Sugar
🥯 Rosemary Sea Salt
With a side of spread that included:
1️⃣ Cinnamon Walnut Cream Cheese
2️⃣ Plain Cream Cheese
3️⃣ Raspberry Jam
These bagels were so delicious topped with the Bagel Jar's homemade spreads 🤤 I went home with a handful of bagels for my family to have because they were so good! My favorite combination was the cinnamon sugar bagel with either cream cheese (1️⃣ & 2️⃣) topped with the raspberry jam! I bought some jam to go home with and there is not a day that goes by that I am not craving this homemade raspberry jam!!
The bagels were still warm and crispy - even after having to toast 4 different bagel halves! Everything tasted truly delicious! The Bagel Jar employees at Alchemy were so friendly and helpful when I was needy and asking for bagels and spreads to take home!
Just based off of this pop-up at Alchemy - I never thought that some champagne and bagels would go so well together; so now that will have to be a weekend staple brunch!
Be sure to follow The Bagel Jar on social media to follow their pop-up events or even stop at Public Espresso to enjoy their bagels any day! I know when I run out of jam and bagels, I will be making a stop to order more!
