Editorial Review of Bagel

One might assume by looking at The Bagel's facade that the interior is small and cramped, but nothing could be further from the truth. Booth after booth are adorned with posters of classic musicals, old and new, which provide an authentic diner feel. It looks like the kind of place where the cast of "Happy Days" would feel at home.

The Bagel has a whole lot more than just bagels. The large menu features salad platters, grilled sandwiches, open-faced sandwiches, char-boiled burgers, "savory specials" such as the "Sweet and Sour Cabbage Meat-In-The-Pot," breakfast food, fountain treats and blintzes (handmade crepes); if you can name it, The Bagel probably has it (including chopped liver...really). Most food items cost less than $10, though a few of the pricier entrees are around $12.

The good-ol' bagel-with-cream-cheese standby costs about $1.60; the garlic variety are a personal favorite. Order a Dr. Brown's cream soda and you're good to go.

Average cost: <$10
