Tampa bagel bakery uses Brooklyn-inspired H2O

The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. brings their specialties such as the Cubsta and flagles to Tampa.

The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. brings their specialties such as the Cubsta and flagles to Tampa.

TAMPA — To replicate the taste and size of North East bagels, the Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. hires scientists who study Brooklyn water.

A special water filtration system breaks down the water to pure H2O.

After the study, the same minerals found in the Brooklyn water are added back into the water that is used to brew coffee and make bagels, muffins, cookies and flagles (a flattened bagel).

"The artisan process means we are touching that product all the way through," Mike Welch, CEO said. "Everything is house-made. No one is sending us anything."

That same thorough process goes into all of their products, even their iced coffee, the Cubsta, which uses frozen coffee for the ice cubes.

The first store opened in 2009 in Delray Beach and on March 4, franchisee Leo Goldman opened one for the Tampa market.

On the corner of S Dale Mabry Highway and Kennedy Boulevard at 111 S Dale Mabry, the storefront offers hot and cold sandwiches, omelettes, hash browns and more.

"We are getting ready in May to come out with a new product that no one has," Welch said.

  3. Coming soon at two Tampa Bay area hospitals: a cancer treatment that could replace chemo

    Health

    A new cancer treatment that could eventually replace chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants — along with their debilitating side effects — soon will be offered at two of Tampa Bay's top-tier hospitals.

    Dr. Frederick Locke at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa is a principal investigator for an experimental therapy that retrains white blood cells in the body's immune system to fight cancer cells. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved these so-called "CAR-T" treatments for adults this month. In trials, 82 percent of cases responded well to the treatment, and 44 percent are still in remission at least eight months later, Locke said. [CHRIS URSO   |   Times]
