We’ve been around the Glebe since 1993, and we thought we’d share some of the common questions we get on a regular basis – and our answers to these questions for those of you curious about the tasty stats. Sometimes we get these questions at 3 a.m. Sometimes we get them on Sunday mornings. Sometimes we get them when people are sampling cream cheeses. When you’re open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – you start to mentally record some of the more regular queries our customers throw our way and you’d be surprised how often we get them.
Great question. We make 6000 bagels a day, or about 42,000 bagels a week, or roughly 168,000 bagels a month. Is that a lot of bagels? The answer is yes.
Q: How many eggs does your store go through in a week?
We go through 225 dozen eggs a week, or about 2700 eggs.
Q: How many customers walk into the store every day?
We average 2000 customers a day.
Q: I love your cream cheeses. How many kinds do you have?
We have 17 kinds of cream cheese – (it’s called a schmear when you put it on a bagel). We make them all on site. The deli style cream cheese is our number 1 seller. Lox or smoked salmon cream cheese is a close second. The most unusual cream cheese we sell is chocolate. Many people have said they think our blueberry cream cheese is one of the most delicious things they’ve ever tasted. If you like our cream cheeses, you can see them all on our website here.
Q: What’s the difference between smoked salmon and lox?
The difference between smoked salmon and lox is that lox is kosher.
Q: Can you cater my Christmas party?
