Roberta's Takeaway Spot Now Offers Bagels, Pastrami Sandwiches, Croissant-Style Garlic Knots

What started as a pizza-only takeout spot now serves breakfast and sandwiches.

Daniel Krieger

Hipster pizza haven Roberta's new takeaway spot started dishing out an early morning breakfast last week. The bakers are offering everything bagels schmeared with cream cheese, plus parfaits, off-menu bialys, and an egg sandwich similar to the one on offer in the restaurant. Back in the days when Melissa Weller was baking for Roberta's, the restaurant was offering some standout bagels, but they disappeared when Weller left to work on her own project with the Torrisi boys. It's unclear if these newbies are made from the same recipe.

When breakfast joined, it seems that so did some garlic knots and pastrami, Italian and meatball sandwiches (at least, they weren't on the menu when the space opened). Pizza expert Adam Kuban tasted the garlic knots late last night and described them "somewhere between a pizza dough and croissant." They don’t appear on the menu online, but a phone call confirms their presence. Tried the new dishes? Send your thoughts to
