(Any awards or industry recognition that the place has received)


  • Started in the late 1960s by Mendel Glick at a previous premises on Kooyong Road, Caulfield.
  • The bagel recipe that Glick's is now renowned for was originally developed from a recipe provided by American soldiers who had served in Germany around the time of World War II.
  • When the original Caulfield premises became too small, Glick's moved to the Balaclava shop.
  • Now most baking occurs at a factory in Carnegie, where about 70,000 bagels are made each week.
