SARATOGA SPRINGS — Malta’s new breakfast spot, The Twisted Bagel Company, is baking up some fresh twists on a staple breakfast food. 

The Twisted Bagel Company, owned by David Samora and managed by Patty Ernst, opened in late August and is located in The Shops of Malta at 15 Kendall Way. The bagel shop recently held a ribbon cutting in November with the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce. 

On the menu at The Twisted Bagel Co. is a wide variety of made-from-scratch bagels, homemade cream cheese, breakfast sandwiches, and lunch options. 

In addition to the traditional bagel flavors, The Twisted Bagel Co.’s unique creations are becoming quite popular, like the jalapeno cheddar bagel and the bacon, egg, and cheese bagel (the bacon, egg, and cheese is not on the bagel, but baked right into the dough!). They have seasonal items too, like their pumpkin bagel for the fall and a cranberry eggnog twist bagel that will be on the menu soon. They also offer gluten-free bagels for those with a gluten sensitivity. 

And, who said bagels can only be eaten for breakfast? The Twisted Bagel Co. even comes up with lunch creations like a tuna fish sandwich or a burger on a bagel. 

“I just want to make good food, get to know my customers, and make people laugh,” said Ernst, who helped Samora open The Twisted Bagel Co. because she simply wanted to have her own business as a means to express her creativity. 

Name a better way to start your day than a good laugh and a good bagel from The Twisted Bagel Company.
