WOAR’s mission is to eliminate all forms of sexual violence through specialized treatment services, comprehensive prevention education programs, and advocacy for the rights of victims of sexual assault. To accomplish this mission, we fight all forms of oppression including racism and gender-based violence.
“WOAR has long supplemented Temple’s sexual misconduct resources, but now members of the university community will benefit from their on-site presence after regular business hours,” said Andrea Seiss, Temple’s Title IX coordinator. “This safe, confidential reporting option provides 24/7 support and response by one of the nation’s most respected rape crisis centers.”

This place is kind of incredible. From scratch preparations, brail menus & sensory kits for autistic guests, $15.00 starting wage, space available for community needs & events, ethical sourcing & practices and more. At first glance it’s just a delicious breakfast / lunch spot but take a second glance to see the community driven excellence.
The menu is exactly what you want except that you then start finding sandwiches you might think don’t belong on a bagel.
…until you try them.
The staff there is one of the best in terms of friendliness, efficiency and over all awesomeness. And yet, despite an uncriticizeable staff they are a second place to the experience of their food which to describe would require I use common buzz words and hot descriptors. And this place is too good to make sound cliche.
You won’t be disappointed when you get your food and you’ll be elated when you realize how good the business is which you just supported.
Ringo Roseman opened The Bagel Place in the summer of 2017, though he’s been a bagel and a sandwich enthusiast his whole life. With 20 years of restaurant experience and a romantic notion of what a bagel shop can be, he set out to use all of his resources, tools, and expertise to create a comfortable home for the community.
Great food using fresh ingredients, prepared in-house daily, is something that everyone can appreciate. Excellent service and a warm and welcoming, family-friendly, inclusive-to-all, and cozy atmosphere are what you will experience at The Bagel Place.
But we feel that how a business is run is just as important as that product and experience. We strive to be an engaged and contributing member of our community, to do our part in supporting our neighbors. We compost and recycle, and contribute to area schools, churches, and organizations.
We donate leftover bagels 6 days a week to organizations that help feed the homeless. We provide a $15 minimum wage to all of our staff and donate the use of our space to an organization teaching American Sign Language classes.
And we’re just getting warmed up.
