Boston’s bagel options are on an upswing, and a forthcoming Medford restaurant seeks to contribute to the trend. Goldilox Bagels will open in what was once a Stone & Skillet storefront at 186 Winthrop St., near Moulton’s, according to founder Lindsey Gaudet.
Along with her husband, Ed, Gaudet has lived in Medford for 10 years.
“We have been tossing around ideas for some kind of food establishment since we moved here,” she told Eater in an email. “We talk constantly about how cool it would be to wake up on the weekend and be able to walk somewhere to get bagels or a sandwich and a nice cup of coffee, and our intention is to become that for our community.”
Gaudet said that they have signed a lease for the future home for Goldilox, which is a standalone space with the infrastructure to support a bagel shop. They will aim to open the bagel shop this coming fall.
Potential menu items shared to social media pages for Goldilox include open-faced bagels topped with lox, a bagel Benedict, pizza bagels, and egg and cheese sandwiches, among other items.
Goldilox will join several other new bagel purveyors to open in recent months within Greater Boston. Black Sheep Bagel Cafe, which serves a mix of open- and closed-faced bagel sandwiches, opened in Cambridge’s Harvard Square last month, and while not solely devoted to peddling bagels, the new Democracy Brewing in Downtown Crossing has a selection of pizza bagels on its menu as well.
