We are thrilled to announce our newest partnership with Rise Bagel Co.! Rise Bagel Co. owners and sisters, Jen & Kate Lloyd started their business selling bagels at local Farmer’s Markets before opening their first storefront in the North Loop in 2017. We are now their first and only retail partner to offer their bagels daily at all three of our retail locations (Wedge Lyndale, Linden Hills and Wedge Table.) Rise is an ideal partner for us as they highly value the same product standards and local sourcing the co-op has always prioritized.
Rise Bagels: A Modern take on an Old-World Craft
Rise Bagel Co. specializes in old-world artisan bagels with a modern twist using organic ingredients. Their made-from-scratch dough is rolled, boiled, topped on both sides and baked—resulting in crisp, chewy and flavorful bagels. From their oven to your taste buds, Rise stands behind an honest, wholesome philosophy to create an elevated bagel experience.
Jen & Kate had a love affair with bagels from an early age. Inspired by their struggle to find a bagel they admired locally, they went on a mission. Traveling from the bagel meccas of New York City and Montreal to San Francisco, they taste tested and learned from the very best—all in an effort to develop a unique recipe that pays homage to old-world-style bagels.
Their organic bagels are proper and far from imposters—not those “rolls with holes” that weigh you down all day. Made the old-fashioned way with time and care, they are crispy with a contrasting interior, chewy with a yank and generously coated (on both sides) with the finest organic ingredients. It’s a true labor of love.

What’s in a name? We love the power of the word rise and all its natural associations. Wheat must rise from the Earth; Dough must rise with yeast; Bagels must rise when boiled; The sun must rise; People must rise from their slumber; Together, we must rise to the occasion.
Are your bagels organic? Yes! As are many of our other products and ingredients.
Are your bagels vegan? Yes, Our bagels are naturally vegan.
What’s the best way to keep your bagels fresh? Bagels not eaten on the day they are purchased should be frozen immediately in a freezer-safe bag. We recommend pre-slicing beforehand. Frozen bagel halves can go straight into the toaster. Alternatively, you can reheat whole frozen bagels by placing them in a cold oven and preheating to 350F. Once the oven reaches 350F, your bagels should be ready to eat or to be sliced and toasted.
