Bagel lovers, cruelty-free meat eaters, there’s a place you need to check out. Sable in Cremorne is a small cafe on the back of the busy street. They have bagels, they have coffee, they even have a book exchange corner. The guys discovered a gap in the area and decided to fill it in. Bagels are an easy, no-fuss option to go and they’re simply delicious. There is a wide range of bagels you can choose from, from plain to wholemeal and rye. The Lox bagel with salmon looks and tastes like a real fish bagel. There’s a hangover cure with bacon to save you on a Saturday morning, avocado with feta if you’re feeling like something classic. Try Aunt Gladdys with apple and cinnamon cream cheese if you’re fond of sweet breakfasts. The meal is not complete at Sable’s if you don’t pick one of a few oversize, melting in your mouth cookies they have available. Their Biscoff cookie reminded me of my days in Belgium where this spread is a national treasure. It’s funny how tasting the food can take you to another place…Let’s not get too nostalgic.
The price ranges between $9 for a simple bagel to $16 if you’re feeling a bit extra (nothing wrong in feeling extra when it comes to good food). The portions are generous and the bagels will leave you full and satisfied. The guys have plenty of milk options for their coffee but not cow’s milk. They decided to encourage people to try different milk alternatives and it’s working great. Who doesn’t like oat milk after all??
There is also a corner where you can get different plants and merch. One whole wall is filled with books where the rule is to bring some, take some. The owners are chill, laid back people who really put an effort to make you feel welcomed. Great vibes, good food, you get to try yummy bagels and pick a new plant for your house in the same place.
