About Us

We're Linda and Steve, an American couple who moved to Rome in 1999 to open The Beehive Hostel. Steve always baked and made bread & bagels for the small cafe in our hostel. It all started when our hostel was closed due to the Covid pandemic. An Instagram post offering to make our bagels by special order, exploded, both in demand and in very positive responses, and now repeat customers. Our "pandemic pivot" born out of necessity turned into a whole new business, Beehive Bagels.


About our bagels


We make artisanal bagels in the old-fashioned, NY style. They're hand-rolled & shaped, cold-proofed for at least 12 hours, boiled, topped and then baked. We're bagel purists and don't use preservatives, additives, colorings, animal products or anything that deviates from traditional ingredients.  Steve - having grown up on the East Coast of the US in a Jewish family -  takes his bagels very seriously!
