MFT Day 6: Bagel World
Sunday mornings consist of two things at our house: Bagel World bagels and Meet The Press. Meet The Press is always interesting -- especially with it being an election year -- but my favorite part of this is getting a Bagel World bagel.
When I first moved to Salem 4 1/2 years ago, my friend Patti (who was my roommate at that time) told me I needed to eat at two places: Crosby's and Bagel World. I slightly discounted her for the Crosby's recommendation, only because it's a super market, so I never actually went to Bagel World until I met Ricky. This might be one of the many reasons why I love him. Him introducing me to Bagel World was a key turning point. I love Bagel World. Every time we're gearing up for a roadtrip, we get Bagel World coffees and sandwiches. When we're recovering from a late and buy Saturday night, Bagel World egg sandwiches and coffees are the elixir of life (case in point: after Amanda's bachelorette party, we all dragged our tired selves to the Bagel World, and it made Sunday a lot more tolerable).
I asked Ricky what his favorite bagel was from Bagel World, but it was hard to decide on just one, because it's all based on mood and level of hungry. Sweet: chocolate chip. Savory: spinach with smoked salmon spread. Sandwich: Chicken salad with veggies and honey mustard. Every Sunday, it's definitely a long debate as to how hungry we are and what side of Bagel World are we leaning towards.
I also appreciate Bagel World's prices, since we can get two coffees and two bagel sandwiches for well under $20. (are you listening, Jaho?) Today, Ricky got one large coffee, one small coffee, and two bagels with cream cheese for a little under $9. At Jaho, you can buy a banana for $9. And not even a whole banana. (I'm only slightly kidding)
So in short, Bagel World? You're a-okay in my book.
