Breakfast: The “I Really Need to Find a Quality Bagel Shop in Midtown” Post

photoDuring the weekday breakfast rush, nearly every open food establishment in the city turns into essentially same thing:

A grill, that does some combination of egg sandwiches, omelets, pancakes and french toast; an oatmeal bar; a bakery case with pastries, bagels, croissants; and a refrigerated case with yogurt parfaits, fresh-squeezed juice, etc.

I’m getting a little tired of it. So to find an egg sandwich on an English muffin — as rather than a croissant, roll, or toast — at Teleon Cafe ($3.35) that I punched my fist into the air and shouted, “Yeesss!!

I need to find a really good bagel shop in Midtown, the kind where once a week or a couple times a month I upgrade and get a really fresh bagel piled high with cream cheese, lox, red onion, capers; squeezed with lemon … like they serve at Murray’s, or Zucker’s. The English muffin is definitely just a band-aid to this issue (and not a very good one at that).
