Capitol Hill bagel shop Westman’s Bagel and Coffee is opening a second location in the University District within a few weeks. Like the Capitol Hill shop, the U District location will serve a solid selection of bagels and schmears, as well as a few sandwiches like lox, whitefish, and bacon, egg, and cheese. Unique to this location will be a sandwich called The Brick Lane, made with corned beef, English mustard, and dill pickles.
The shop’s publicist says the bakery operation will also be moving from Capitol Hill to the new location, and the expansion will allow the business to add new items to the menu in the future. Westman’s Bagel and Coffee will be located in the former Urban Dinner Market space at 5201 University Way Northeast and will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day.
