About Us

The term “Zimi” is a variation from the Hellenic word for dough.  This dough is made from pure ingredients and baked fresh to be served as a staple with every meal.  In the tradition of old-world artisans, Zimi’s creates hand-rolled hot water bagels which are baked to perfection right in front of you when you visit our cafés.

Zimi Bagel Café is a family owned business that has been serving delicious hand-rolled bagels to the people of New York/New Jersey since 1990. We are a lot more than just a bakery or café selling baked goods. We offer you a variety of healthy meal options, using only the freshest and finest ingredients available.

Once you taste our fresh and delicious bagels or other offerings on our menu, you will know exactly what we are talking about. So, don’t hesitate to drop by and try some of our old world quality hot water bagels. You’ll be amazed.

We’ve experienced decades of satisfying customer relationships.  We feel blessed and are truly grateful to Pearl River, Nanuet and the surrounding towns for their support.  From day one until today we know we are in the customer satisfaction business.  Great food just happens to be what we trade in.
