About Bagels 'n Grinds
Welcome to Bagels 'n Grinds located on Arundel Mills Boulevard at The Preserve, just 3/4 miles south of Anne Arundel Mills Mall. At Bagels 'n Grinds you can experience 16 different varieties of hot delicious bagels baked fresh daily from 6:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Our bagels are authentic New York style bagels made just like they were 100 years ago. Bagels 'n Grinds bagels are crispy and crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Our secret to making the perfect bagel is in our 10-step patented process and includes using the highest quality ingredients, ultra purified water and special handling of the dough. Top them off with a choice of 6 homemade spreads.
Bagels 'n Grinds features a glass-enclosed $50,000 water treatment facility that is incorporated into the viewable baking process at the restaurant. "The ability to use ultra-purified water in the bagel-making process enhances the texture and flavor of our bagels." States Greenberg, "The water treatment process does not stop with the bagel recipe. Our water treatment facility makes 3 different types of water. We use this water in our Free-Trade organic coffees at our 18-foot beverage station, so that our patrons receive only the best and purest products available." The beverage station includes: soda, six brews of hot coffee, three brews of ice-coffee that is brewed to be ice-coffee, fresh brewed ice-tea and three creamers, and three fresh chilled dairy choices including soy milk.
Bagels 'n Grinds offers a menu of delicious sandwiches, salads and soups. On the warm side they offer, Eggstreme Omelet Breakfast Sandwiches (toppings mixed right in) like the meaty sausage, bacon, egg and cheese. All the egg sandwiches can be made with egg whites or egg substitutes. Sandwiches include hot baginnis (bagel Panini), as well as wraps. On the cold side, Bagels 'n Grinds delivers a fresh twist on Roast Beef, Turkey, Clubs and Veggie sandwich creations with delightful compliments like feta cheese and herb aioli.
Watching your carbs? Bagels and Grinds offers a lighter carb solution by building their sandwiches, by request, on a "skinny" or "scooped" version of the bagel.
Their extreme salad menu includes a Make-your-own-salad where you can choose your lettuce mix, gourmet dressings and toppings of protein, crunch and dairy. All lettuce and veggies are washed and prepared in-house. Bagels 'n Grinds never uses bagged lettuce and all of our poultry is cooked on-site.
