Our Story

June 2021
Established in 2021
Whilst some people might say that opening a business at the height of a pandemic was a risky move, we believe that fortune favours the bold. Brawsome Bagels was founded by Ian Brooke in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic after being made redundant by his previous employer.

Brawsome photography
We're proud as punch about the photographs that decorate the walls of our Partick bakery. Dylan Lombard, an 18 year old photographer from Shawlands Academy, overcame multiple afflictions to pursue his passion for photography. We were impressed by his skill, passion, and brawsome spirit.

Becoming a living wage employer
We were thrilled to receive a phone call certifying us as a living wage employer. This is something we set out to do right from day one and now we have the badge to prove it! We are as committed to ensuring the well being of our staff as we are the quality of the food and the experience our customers come for.
