Roland's Closure Creates Carb Deficiency in Lower Haight

  • As of this morning, the corner of Haight and Webster has a little less bagel love.
Carb intake in the Lower Haight is likely taking its biggest dip since June of last year, when Roland's Bakery first shined its ray of East Coast bagel light on the neighborhood. As Eater noted earlier today, the bakery has (temporarily?) shuttered, due to a reported landlord dispute and unpaid rent.

This all comes as quite a shock: Roland's has garnered quite a loyal following for its baked goods, including chewy New York-style bagels ― probably the closest San Francisco's going to get to Big Apple favorites like Ess-A-Bagel and Oasis. Check back for rumblings of a Lower Haight reopening, and the status of Roland's second outpost, rumored to surface in Hayes Valley in April.
