Bagel masters Joe and Vincent Giraldi have been making bagels the old-fashioned way since 1983. Some might say that the taste of a good bagel is in the water, but at Tasty Bagels, the good taste is in the hands of owners Joe and Vincent.
With no experience at all, Joe decided to leave his position as court officer and open up a bagel store.
“He always wanted his own business,” wife Angel Giraldi told Standing O.
And the bagel store was it. Son Vincent hopped on board and the pair have been boiling and baking ever since.
Angel added, “This is a family-run business and between Joe and Vincent, they have made it a success.”
This past weekend, the Giraldi family celebrated 30 years of boiling and baking by rolling back prices to the halcyon days of 1983, adding gifts for the children, refreshments, and ’80s music.
The Girladi family also believes in giving back, and for the past several years Tasty Bagels has supplied food to the Marines in its Toys for Tots campaign at Christmastime.
Whether you’re jonesing for a plain with a cream cheese schmear or an everything with butter and jelly, Tasty Bagels is the go-to place to satisfy that bagel bug.
