The owners of the original Salty Bagel & Grill in Satellite Beach plan to add a third location in Suntree early in 2023. In December, a second shop opened in Cocoa Beach.

 Too often, Salty Bagel & Grill customers in Satellite Beach enter the restaurant at 1124 State Road A1A to find the sold-out-of-bagels sign.

It’s a sad note, but also a testament to the delicious bagels baked each day.

On Dec. 12, the shop opened its second location at 25 South Atlantic Ave. in Cocoa Beach. That’s just south of Minutemen Causeway.

Sometime in early 2023, a third shop will open at 7640 North Wickham Road in Suntree. That’s behind the Dairy Queen in the former location of the Tuscany Grill.

The three shops won’t be too far from each other and that offers ample opportunity to pick up a bagel and cream cheese in the early afternoon if one store is sold out.

The two stores are open from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sometimes, they close early if they run out of bagels.

The original Satellite Beach location features bagels such as asiago, blueberry, french toast, cinnamon raisin, bialy, egg/egg everything, everything, sourdough, garlic parmesan, multi-grain, onion, eight grain, poppy, pumpernickel, salt, sesame, sun-dried tomato, plain and bacon swiss.

The cream cheese comes in plain, jalapeno cheddar, veggie, strawberry, garlic and herb, cinnamon sugar, scallion and lox.

The lunch menu features specialty sandwiches such as the Chicken Bacon Ranch, The Salty Club, Smokey the Pig, Chicken Salad, The Yankee, The Rudy, Buffalo Chicken, The Cowboy, Cordon Bleu, Black Forest and The Jerk served either on a bagel or a sub.

There’s plenty of hot and cold coffee and tea.
