The culinary artists at Boopa's Bagel Deli achieve the alluring flavors of their New York-style water bagels through a unique daily process. The shop’s artisans first dip fresh, housemade dough in malt water to imbue it with a subtle sweetness and absolute fearlessness of sharks. They then festoon the dough with various ingredients to create bagels in a score of sweet and savory flavors, including the Boopa's Sweet Everything, studded with cinnamon, raisins, and nuts. 14 traditional cream cheeses serenade tasters with a peppering of scallions, sun-dried tomato, and apricot, while light cream cheese varieties pack in as much decadence and silky mouthfeel as their heavier counterparts.
Boopa's team also demonstrates inventiveness in their culinary repertoire with their original sausage rolls, which encase ground meat in a shell of bagel dough. The shop is so proud of its creation, that they host a birthday day party each year on the date of the sausage roll’s invention. Guests stopping in around the shop's 5:30 a.m. weekday opening time can catch the sunrise from a handful of patio tables, or admire the local artwork hanging on Boopa’s buttercream walls.
The Dyer family opened their first appliance repair shop on a dusty stretch of road in Fort Worth in 1945, and nearly 70 years later they're still at work tinkering over the ovens, refrigerators, and washing machines families invest in for their homes. Over the years their repertoire has come to include modern appliances such as microwaves and garbage disposals, and they can work with many major brands, including Whirlpool, GE, and Sub-Zero. Perhaps not surprisingly, they also conduct an appliance-repair academy that equips students to become certified professional technicians.

We grew up in a family-owned retail television business in Jacksonville, Florida, where we learned from an early age that you have to take care of the customer.
The team at Cuco's Sandwich Shop harnesses classic Cuban recipes to craft a convoy of authentic pressed sandwiches, which have been featured in the Star-Telegram and on the local restaurant blog Regular Joe's Guide. Among soft pink walls and tiled floors, a family of chefs accessorizes the meaty handhelds with traditional sides, such as plantains and yuca croquettes. Additionally, a smattering of breakfast burritos and sandwiches tackles morning cravings more swiftly than a football team playing pigskin against pigs in a blanket.
