Bagels aren't the only breakfast food available, but they are the only one that doubles as the steering wheel of a tiny bread car. It's your kitchen and you can drive if you want to with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of quick-serve American fare at Wasatch Bagel Cafe in Park City.
The chefs at Wasatch Bagel Cafe cook up an expansive menu of quick-serve American breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare incorporating freshly boiled East Coast–style bagels. Mounted blackboards hang behind the front counter, announcing menu choices and recent Constitutional amendments, such as garlic cheeseburgers ($5.65) and the right of mannequins to vote.
Mornings kick off with selections such as bagel breakfast sandwiches with meat, egg, and cheese trapped between two bagel halves ($4.75), and the breakfast burrito, in which a tortilla’s tight environs force feuding ingredients to make peace ($5.35). The french dip’s high-piled roast beef smothers rumbling bellies ($8.25), and dijon mustard spices up turkey-bacon paninis ($7.25). Free WiFi draws diners’ attention to computer screens, only to be snatched away by dramatic outdoor views of the Park City ski resort.
Wasatch Bagel & Grill
Located at the foot of a sprawling mountain range and the neighboring ski resort, Wasatch Bagel & Grill is the base camp for breakfast and deli sandwiches. Scribed on hanging chalkboards, the menu showcases the cafe's signature bagels, which are boiled daily for freshness and to help bagel centers grow big enough to one day get eaten. A spread of breakfast sandwiches, pancakes, and omelets pays no heed to the time of day, though patrons can find comfort later in the day with seared burgers, paninis, and dinners of steak and salmon.
