Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen

Rosenberg's Bagels & Delicatessen is the best place to get New York style bagels in Denver, Colorado

Founded by Joshua Pollack, Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen in Five Points has quickly become a fixture in Denver’s vibrant breakfast scene.

Pollack’s  journey from New York to Denver reads like a delicious tale of serendipity and determination. Armed with a family recipe and a vision to recreate the authentic flavors of his hometown, he set out to conquer the daunting task of bagel-making at altitude. Joshua mastered the nature of New York bagel making – a labor of love that captured the essence of New York’s iconic delis and brought it to the Rocky Mountains.

Its location in the Five Points neighborhood is – unique. This neighborhood, nestled just northeast of downtown, holds a rich history that pulses through its streets and echoes in its eclectic establishments. Five Points was once dubbed the “Harlem of the West” for its thriving jazz scene.

In the late 19th century, Five Points emerged as a cultural epicenter, drawing black Americans with promises of opportunity and prosperity. What began as a melting pot of diverse cultures soon blossomed into a lively neighborhood teeming with music, art, and culinary delights.

Fast forward to today, and Rosenberg’s placement in Denver marks a shift toward gentrification and “area renewal.” It’s delicious food – but with the knowledge of the history of the area behind every bite.

With all this in mind, I enjoyed THE STANDARD (House-Cured Gravlax, Plain Cream Cheese, Tomato, Capers, Red Onion, on an Everything Bagel) with orange juice and coffee.

If you find yourself in Denver craving a slice of New York style bagel heaven, make sure to swing by Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen.
