Colorado Bagel Company is expanding and wants to meet the needs of the community with a new Westside Market & Deli

When you walk into Colorado Bagel Company’s new Westside Market & Deli (2851 Riverside Plaza), you’ll find a tantalizing menu, chatting customers and a market that could save you a drive across town.

“We have a ton of different deli salads, including potato and pasta salad, cold sesame noodles and chicken salad to go,” said owner Julia Goldman. “We have a Reuben on marble rye bread, and our chef Patrick (Ayres) is from Louisiana, so we have gumbo and a shrimp po’boy and matzo ball soup.”

The Westside Market & Deli opened a few weeks ago and will complement the Colorado Bagel Company’s Mountainside Sandwich Shop (1815 Central Park Drive).



Goldman said that while the two locations are connected, they will offer different dishes on the menu and each location will have its own identity. She has hired executive chef Patrick Ayres to create a unique menu at the new location.

“You can get a lot of the same things there, but the idea was that I didn’t want to exactly replicate what I do at the bagel shop,” Goldman said.



The Mountainside Sandwich Shop will continue to offer bagels, breakfast sandwiches, smoked fish sandwiches and a selection of deli sandwiches from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. – and recently expanded its offerings to include a Mountain Pizza, serving tavern-style cracker pies and Detroit-style pan pizza from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.

The menu also includes baked ziti, garlic knots, and house and Caesar salads.

Goldman said she spent nearly a year renovating the space for the new Westside Market & Deli, which will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. She bought the Colorado Bagel Company six years ago with her husband, Mark, and said the couple saw a need to expand to the west side and offer food and services not available there.

Ayres offers a fresh menu with plenty of appetizing options and there is also a small market selling things like milk, bacon and other items.

“You can buy frozen bagels in slices to go and things like that,” Ayres said. “There’s delicious fresh produce and they’ve done a great job of sourcing everything at the market with things you can’t find anywhere else. It’s a really unique place.”

Ayres said he will showcase many flavors he brought from his native Louisiana.

“We try to be a New York-style deli, so we have a Reuben, and I’m from Louisiana, so we have a few things from there, like the shrimp po’boy and sausage gumbo. We also do matzo ball soup.”

The market also offers bagels, spreads and vegetables as well as coffee, baked goods and gluten-free and vegan savory snacks.

“So far, it’s been word of mouth,” Goldman said of attracting customers at Westside Market and Deli. “We’re getting really nice, great feedback, which is really nice, and we’re really excited to be here. I’m very happy to be open.”
