New Bagel Restaurant Set to Open in Ottumwa

Tuesday, June 05, 2018

OTTUMWA-The wait for bagels is over! The Blaine’s Bagels at 101 South Market Street, in downtown Ottumwa opened their doors to the public. Blaine’s Bagels is a dream come true for co-owners Blaine and Danielle Rupe.  “We are excited to finally get underway,” said Blaine.  “We have had overwhelming support from the community and the public to start this business and we look forward to sharing our products with the community we love.”

Blaine and Danielle have been working on renovating the space, giving it a more hometown feeling while making the space family friendly. The bagels, which are known as Iowa-style bagels, are softer than a normal bagel. The shop also has a variety of homemade cream cheeses available to compliment the bagels. Some of the flavors are: chocolate chip, honey pecan, strawberry, vegetable, jalapeño garlic, bacon scallion and many others. Blaine’s Bagels will also be serving lunch favorites like soup and sandwiches.  “The most requested order so far is the cheese bread with nacho cheese sauce,” said Danielle. “But another popular goody is homemade cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting.”

Going forward, you can find them open Monday through Friday from 6 am to 3 pm and, Saturday 7 am to 2 pm. “We are very happy to be a part of the revitalization of the Main Street Ottumwa district,” said Blaine. “This is our hometown and we look forward to the opportunity to grow here.”
