With the sign taken down, Michael Yoss shakes hands with Dean Bates as he prepares to begin a new chapter in his life. Dean takes home the sign and buys the outdoor seating from Walter Huebner (remember, they brought their own seating every Sunday!), and they used them anytime the Bagel Bunch had a reunion.
Fast forward to August 2021: Piedmont Heights finally has a new authentic bagel shop!
Brooklyn Bagel, open since 1997 in Johns Creek, launched their second location in Ansley Mall next to Ansley Wine. Cheers to real bagels; visit this family-owned business often!
