Glicks was founded in the late 1960s by Mr Mendel Glick in a small retail shop on Kooyong Road Caulfield. In its early days the shop offered a selection of cakes and biscuits until Mr Glick revived an old European recipe and method for boiled bagels. The product was an instant sensation and word quickly spread throughout the Jewish community. Local milk-bars and delis sought a piece of the action too. Many shop keepers recognised the bagel’s appeal particularly with the development of Sunday trading. The Glicks bagel began to replace other bread items in many homes and Melbourne eateries, making the exclusive Glicks boiled bagel a crowd pleaser since its inception.
Glicks stores are situated at popular shopping and business areas where you can dine, take away or simply enjoy a drink or a coffee. Glicks offer a wide variety of tasty meals and snacks for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast and lunch menus offer extensive choices of delicious toasted bagels, pizzas and other delicious meals.
Customers can also personalise their meal by ordering a customise bagel or other sandwich with a choice of fillings, dips, fresh salads and cheeses. Each of our cafes serve freshly brewed coffee throughout the day including café latte, cappuccino, mochachino, milk shake and hot chocolate. Glicks stores can also cater for business breakfast, lunches or afternoon teas.
Its diverse selection of delicious sweet and savoury products have been enticing customers for decades. Glicks is proud of its reputation as Australia’s largest and finest kosher bakery. As Mr Glick says, “IF IT’S GLICKS IT’S GOOD”.
