Smoking Gun Bagels is Sydney's only authentic Montreal-style bagelry, and it has been hand-rolling and woodfiring them in Woolloomooloo since 2016. Now, it's heading west — to St Peters.
The bagelry has popped up opposite Sydney Park, in temporary cafe created in collaboration with Sydney's collective coffee roaster, Collective Roasting Solutions. It's serving up an all-star lineup of Sydney roasters, including Edition, Skittle Lane, Harry's Bondi and Grace & Taylor — and, for the next six weeks, standout bagels.
On Smoking Gun's menu, you'll find the likes of Chick Don't Kale My Vibe, with kale cream cheese, candied walnut and poached chicken, and the Netflix and Dill, with house-cured salmon and pickled zucchini.
In a move that should improve your morning commute (if only ever so slightly) the pop-up is right next door to St Peters train station. So you can grab a bagel and a much-needed coffee — and maybe even watch some dogs frolicking in the park — before you head off to your 9-to-5.
The Smoking Gun Bagels pop-up is open from 7am-2pm, Tuesday to Sunday, until Sunday, September 16.
