Williamsburg Based Cragel is 50% Bagel, 50% Croissant


Williamsburg is not about be left out of a popular scene. The hipster borough now has a croissant hybrid to call their own thanks to The Bagel Store. Cragels, not to be confused with Crogels or Cronuts are described as a “delicate, flaky, buttery croissant baked into a flavorful tasty bagel, 50% croissant, 50 % bagel.” The Bagel Store actually released their creation back in September but it is Brooklyn so the hipsters probably wanted to keep their precious Cragel under the mainstream radar.


The Cragel has pull-apart layers similar to a croissant but baked in true bagel form whereas the Crogel looks exactly like a Cronut with its tall visible layers but is a bagel. Got it?

Also unlike it’s sweet counterpart The Bagel Store ships Cragels nationwide charging $2.95 for the doughy treat.
