Love a Bagel, a bagel café, recently opened on Main Street in Bennington.
Paula and Peter Cross, who own the two-story building that houses Love a Bagel on the first floor, had always talked about opening a bagel shop, said Paula Cross.
“We thought we would try it,” she said. The couple purchased the building in January 2006, records show.
The bagels, which come in 13 varieties including cinnamon, onion, blueberry and sun-dried tomato, are baked on premises and served with a variety of cream cheeses. Some 125 bagels are baked daily.
In addition, the 16-seat eatery serves home-baked goods and features a daily chili, home-made soup, and lunch sandwiches such as a fresh turkey with melted Swiss cheese and broccoli, or slices of Virginia baked ham with green apple and cheddar cheese.
Love a Bagel is located at 704 Main Street, Bennington, VT 05201. The telephone number is 802.681.7465; the e-mail address is crossfour30 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. A business Web site is pending.MORE IN Battenkill Business Briefs
