Ruby’s Bagels is Milwaukee’s first bagel Pop Up, which opened in 2019. They are committed to offering the greatest quality bagels as well as a one-of-a-kind experience for their customers. Daniela Ruby Varela founded the company after discovering the most delicious bagel in Ohio and teaching herself how to make it. At the end of 2017, she created her own recipe.
She noticed that such a common breakfast item was lacking in Milwaukee. She looked for a commercial kitchen in 2018 but was unsuccessful until January of 2019 when she started doing Pop Ups at a local Makers Market in Walkers Point and Pilcrow Coffee.
“Immensely delicious bagels – their Rosemary Sea Salt bagels are what I look forward to at the end of the week. I used to think I couldn’t find a consumable bagel in Milwaukee and claimed them to be a “vacation food”, but Ruby’s has gone above and beyond and is absolutely worth the stop. Get a Rosemary Sea Salt with Jalapeño spread, you’ll thank me later.” – Lydia K.

“We called Allie Boys to discuss a 40 person breakfast event on very short notice. Staci was fantastic, providing us recommendations for a delightful spread of food and coffee. She made the process so easy and stress-free, and man did they deliver! We had guests from all over the country, and nearly every single person pulled me aside to rave about the quality of the bagels and other food items! Many thanks to Staci and Allie Boys. Do consider them for your event-hosting needs.” – Barry R.

Bagels and Sandwiches
“They have an Ancient grain bagel that is amazing. I have not seen those anywhere else. The vanilla hazelnut is my go-to coffee. My favorite bagel was with Nutella, bananas, and almonds. I love this place because they are quick and you get a breakfast that will keep you full for a long time, and the grain or power proteins bagel is a better breakfast.” – Olivia B.

Ma Fischer’s had two booths, 16 stools, and an upstairs home. Their crew consisted of two servers, her mother, who served as hostess, and her father, who served as chef and short-order cook. The restaurant has been refurbished four times in the last 40 years, which has contributed to its success. They expanded to 11 booths, six tables, and a counter in the early 1980s.
They eventually erected an atrium, which allowed for an additional 12 tables. They closed for three months in 1989, gutted the restaurant, and rebuilt to their current size. Their menu has remained simple over the years, and they have always attempted to please all palates with a range of options at all hours of the day.
Bagel, Croissant, Pancakes, Burrito, and More
“Came from Chicago, IL and tried this place with little expectations, but they really knocked it out of the park for a big breakfast for 2 for about $33 plus tip which included 2 entries, 2 coffees, and 2 biscuits on the side. I made my own sandwich with a biscuit and I’m still drooling over it. We were greeted, seated, and treated quickly to an awesome experience. They clean up the place well and promptly, bathrooms are tidy, waitresses friendly and helpful, food came out within 15 min, and our coffee and water were always topped off by the staff. I highly recommend this place! We will definitely return.” – George Z.
