- Courtesy Of Olivia's Bagels Pop-up
Abracadabra, brunch! Chef Peter Varkonyi pops up at Woodstock's town beanery for a magical bagel party, where everything's naturally leavened and handmade from scratch. On the menu? Everything bagels with smoked-salmon cream cheese and pickled onion; jalapeño rounds, crispy with cheddar and cradling ham; and blueberry bagels with sweet cream cheese. Also: fudge babka and all of the caffeinated beverages — espresso, drip and otherwise — fresh from the house coffee wizards.
