Oh, and TJ mentioned Gilpin's Bagel and Deli
(37 E 7th St) a few weeks ago, and I wanted to say it is definitely a good downtown spot to try! For me, it made Brueggers look so very sad!
I've had lunch twice with my hubby in the last 2 weeks, and first plus was that we both ate for under $14. That included bagel sandwiches, chips (they have those yummy Mrs. Vickie's kettle ones too), soda, and a cookie for both
! Almost can't beat that with a stick!
1) Steaming your bagel is nearly a must, but I don't think I recommend it if you get a lot of veggies. They don't steam with the veggies on, but it hubby has convinced me that it ruins the "effect." You can also do your combo on a sub bun, wrap, and as a salad.
2) Almost everything is fresh. Big chunky meats, nice bagels in a ton of varieties. Cookie are soft...GET THEM STEAMED. A cookie will never be the same!
3) The staff is pretty awesome. A bunch of good younger fellas that are polite and friendly and will give you honest feedback about your bagel creation. They know what they are talking about, so if you don't know what to get, ask!
Website is up with menu: http://eatgbad.com/default.php
. Also, they have some customer & staff favorite combos that you can get. Not a whole lot of room to sit, but they have a few bar-style seats in the window. Also, for those who live downtown or frequent the area at night, notice they are open until 3am
on Friday and Saturday night!
Will post pics next time!
Anyone know the status of the Ben & Jerry's
