More than just a bagel shop – NBC Boston

Café Fresh Bagel is a Needham, MA staple that has been serving bagels and New Jersey-style bagels for over 20 years.

Owner James Papadopoulos has worked there since he was 13, assisting his father on weekends. He says it’s being part of the community that counts. “I grew up in the business and it makes me happy to see the same people coming in,” he says.

Whether it’s high school kids down the street grabbing a pre-school sandwich or a mom packing lunch for the week, these locals can count on the fact that every bagel is all-natural.

Over the past few years, Papadopoulos has taken over the family business and strived to keep it authentic to the highest degree possible. He says, “We don’t use any preservatives. We don’t use any type of fillers or oils.”

Whether it’s an egg with bacon or cheese, a nova lox sandwich or even day-to-day toasted bagel chips, Café Fresh has something for everyone.
