Pernickety Bagels by Leah P.
Located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Pernickety Bagels is a home-based business that strives to create a one of a kind bagel that is the ideal blend of chewy and crisp. Pernickety is defined as “placing too much emphasis on trivial or minor details” and is often synonymous with “fussy”, but we believe that the details matter, especially with food! With every bagel sale, we try to present a combination of classic and distinct bagel flavors.
