Vegan Options at Rise Bagel Co.

Bagel with Vegan Sausage & Cream Cheese

Rise Bagel Co. is in downtown Minneapolis, and all of their bagels are vegan. They also offer vegan cream cheese, sausage, carrot lox, and butter. It’s a cool, modern space where you order at the counter and they call your name when your food is ready.

The first time I visited, I overlooked the vegan sausage on the menu, so I had an Everything Bagel with scallion cream cheese. The cream cheese is really soft, and there was a bit too much for me, but the flavor was good. If you need to talk to people soon after you have the scallion cream cheese, I recommend having a breath mint on hand.

I visited with a friend recently and made sure to get the vegan sausage, and this time I stuck with plain cream cheese. For some reason, the sandwich made me think of the sausage biscuit sandwich from McDonald’s. I loved it!

I’ve also had the carrot lox which isn’t too mushy, and I like that it also comes with tomato and red onion. This is one tasty breakfast sandwich, and I might prefer it over the sausage and cream cheese sandwich.

How wonderful is it that we can go to a bagel shop and get this many options? If you haven’t eaten as Rise Bagel Co. yet, you should try and work it into your schedule sometime soon!

  1. Oh, I envy all of your options! I adore bagel sandwiches, but I’m always stuck to making them at home. (The only vegan bagel topping option at Bruegger’s is their packaged hummus, and it is terrible.)

      1. They really do need to step up their game! The last time I went to Bruegger’s, I opted for the hummus and they nearly sliced my bagel with the same one they had just used to slice one with cream cheese. I’m glad I was watching but ugh.
