UPDATE: Quarry Bagel Still Open, Cafe Up for Auction

The restaurant will remain open, according to Geoff Friedman, owner.

UPDATE (3 p.m. March 25)—Quarry Bagel & Cafe Is Sold

UPDATE (11:45 a.m.)—The future of Quarry Bagel & Cafe is uncertain, as it changes ownership, but the restaurant will remain open.

An auction advertisement on Alex Cooper Chattel Auctions gives some clues as to what's going on at the Shops at Quarry Lake business, a popular local restaurant that earned Pikesville Patch's Readers Choice Award for Best Sandwich.

"Being offered for auction is the business as entirety only," the announcement states. "Partnership dissolution forces immediate auction sale. Exciting opportunity for experienced food operator to purchase full functioning bagel/deli cafe in well-known Quarry Lake in Pikesville."

Read the full auction announcement for how to apply for ownership, ownership eligibility details and a full list of what is being auctioned.

Owner Geoff Friedman said in a comment on this article that the business will remain open.

Included in the sale are: name, goodwill, equipment including Globe SP 20 Mixer, a range, walk-in refrigerator and freezer, and more, it states.

The auction is 1 p.m. Friday, March 22, it states.

What's your favorite menu item at Quarry Bagel? The bagels, whitefish salad, dinner items that they served for a while? When's the last time you were there?

You meant to say the auction is March 22.

Mike, yes, thanks! I made that correction. Lost a 2 somewhere. -Janet.

Janet, we're not closed. Not sure who told you that
Janet Metzner March 11, 2013 at 03:44 PM
Hi Geoff, I didn't say that it was closed for good, only that it was closed earlier Sunday than the normal closing time. I'm sure your customers will be happy to hear that it is going to remain open! -Janet

It was on the Alex Cooper website. Glad it's still open.

Why doesn't someone buy the cafe and make it a kosher bagel shop. Sure would be nice to have another option then the current kosher bagel establishment.
Janet Metzner March 27, 2013 at 08:33 PM
Justin, here's an update. Quarry Bagel & Cafe has been sold. It will remain the same, except they might open for dinners. Check the link in this article. -Janet
