Morning, glory: first look at Humble Bagel’s gentle opening

Posted By on Fri, Apr 4, 2014 at 11:29 AM

There’s something to be said for being understated, especially when it comes to breakfast joints.

When Artz Bagels shuttered for good earlier this year, it was disappointing to lose a go-to spot for quality bagels. It was a bit of a relief, though, to never have to venture into the store’s neon wonderland of greens and pinks ever again.

The peach fuzz and robin’s egg blue color scheme of Freret Street’s much-anticipated Humble Bagel (open through the weekend with limited hours) shows a lot of promise as a place where early risers can eat fresh, warm bagels without feeling like they’ve being dropped into a morning cartoon show.

Opening quietly just days before the onslaught of Freret Street Festival, Humble Bagel’s small-but-mighty menu — including a salt bagel special and fresh strawberry cream cheese — and courteous staff have created an easy-going, welcoming atmosphere that is a natural fit for the neighborhood.
