Josh and Kara Pollack, owners of Roseberg’s Bagels, announced Saturday via Facebook that the restaurant’s re-opening is still a few months away.
“Unfortunately, due to construction delays and other factors out of our control, we do not expect to be back open until at least early September,” they wrote (appropriately capping things off with a sad-face emoji).
The popular New York-style bagel spot in Five Points has been closed since early May. A fire in the upstairs apartments — which police believe was lit to cover up a murder — caused significant water damage in the restaurant.
But here’s the good news: Beginning this Sunday, July 24, Rosenberg’s will be a permanent vendor at The Source Farmers Market, 3350 Brighton Blvd. The Facebook announcement says the new location will offer a limited menu, and will not sell bagels by the dozen.
