A New Bagel Cafe Invokes ‘Old Brooklyn’

A new cafe in Rockridge is boiling bagels in-house and claiming — at least by way of its chosen moniker — to offer a taste of Brooklyn.

You may recall that earlier this week I’d noted a tip from Our Oakland, a local blog, that Rockridge’s Cafe Zoe recently morphed into something called Old Brooklyn Bagels & Deli (6000 College Ave.). It’s an interesting development, given the fact that Jason and Mark Scott, the brothers behind Authentic Bagel Company, had originally planned to partner with Cafe Zoe’s owners on a similar concept. (That partnership fell apart, and the Scott brothers have since moved into their own space in Jack London Square.)
