Tucked away on the west side of the small town of Broad Channel in the middle of Jamiaca Bay is a narrow, dead end, street that goes by the name of West 12th Road. Those of us who live there know that the nice part about living in a small town is that when you are not quite sure what is going on, someone else always does!

All-American Bagel & Barista Company II now open in Broad Channel
BC Bagel Shop Reopens
By Dan Guarino
The newly renovated All-America Bagels & Barista Company II, formerly Rock N Roll Bagels, had a very early Sunday morning opening in Broad Channel.Photos by Dan GuarinoAt 6 a.m. on March 20, the glass doors of All-American Bagels & Barista Company II welcomed customers back into the Broad Channel bagel shop.
The store, just past the Cross Bay Bridge toll plaza on Cross Bay Boulevard, had closed on Feb. 26 for several weeks of renovations.
Original owners Rob Pisani and Robert Steiner, who founded the business, later sold it after several successful years. Although it retained the name Rock N Roll Bagels, and had a similar menu, business had begun to dwindle under the new ownership.
Pisani and Steiner bought it back, in the process renaming it to keep it in line with another successful venture, All-American Bagel & Barista Company, inLindenwoodinHoward Beach.
Renovations included several new and changed features inside as well as changes to the exterior and also the parking lot and curb entrances.
The first customers seemed pleased with the new and redone fixtures, cases and menu items.
“It’s really nice to have these guys and all the great staff back!” said one man as he headed out the door.
No plans have yet been announced for a grand reopening date for the store.
