Homegrown coffee and gelato chain Dolcezza will start selling bagels from Call Your Mother, Park View’s popular “Jew-ish” deli, at all of its nine local locations starting this Friday, March 8.

Founder Robb Duncan tells Eater he’s “super stoked” to be collaborating with Andrew Dana and Dani Moreira, whose bagels have commanded crazy crowds since opening last fall.

Dolcezza will carry plain, everything, sesame and za’atar rounds that can be topped with cream cheese (plain, garden herb, candied salmon) or apple and ginger jam. The first two people who order bagels in each Dolcezza location will get free Call Your Mother tote bags. Bagels, priced at $3 each (and $1 extra for cream cheese), will be available all day while supplies last.

As previously announced, Duncan is also importing Dolcezza’s hearty breakfast offerings served on the Wharf to its Logan Circle location starting Wednesday, March 13 (1418 14th Street NW). Expect egg and cheese, bacon egg and cheese, and sausage egg and cheese sandwiches on its biscuits, followed by hot cakes and its signature breakfast croissant sandwich landing there soon.

The choice to expand its food selections comes as more customers are craving “an evolution of the cafe experience” beyond coffee, he told Eater earlier this year.

The 15-year-old coffee brand is big on collaborating with homegrown operations. Dolcezza teamed up with Sweetgreen last year to re-release the salad giant’s tart frozen yogurt, Sweetflow.

This month, Call Your Mother expanded its service model with reservation-only supper clubs. The shop has also signed on to supply bagels for Lost Sock Roasters when the local company opens its first standalone store in Takoma later this year. Dana and Moreira also run Timber Pizza, which is bringing Turu’s to the Quarter Market food hall in Ballston.
