The Breadbox Café welcomes the community into a modern space with exposed brick, fresh-baked bagels, healthy salads, and friendly people. The menu emphasizes freshness, using locally grown and organic produce when possible, grinding their own meat, and baking bagels fresh from scratch each morning. Smother a dough ring in your choice of cream cheese ($1.95+), or pile on the lox, cream cheese, tomato, and onion ($7.95). Sandwiches, including the vegan veggie with avocado, shitake mushrooms, sprouts, and pepper relish on ciabata ($8.95), and the steak house with chopped short rib on a brioche roll ($11.95), fill the empty hollows in hands and bellies. For a refreshing mouthful, forkdive into a salad, such as the tuna nicoise ($11.95) and farmer's country, a plate piled high with lettuce and organic veggies, spiced walnuts, blue cheese, and apples ($9.50). Breakfast is served all day.
Bugatti Cafe fully embraces the warm, charming connotations of an Italian eatery with its earthy cuisine and rich mahogany hues. Originally from Parma, Italy, chef Camillo recreates familiar Old World flavors by importing cheeses and cured meats and relying on time-honored techniques for boiling water on a stovetop. His menu includes slow-cooked lamb shanks, veal- and spinach-stuffed ravioli, and grilled Portuguese octopus in red-wine-vinegar emulsion.
Although the eclectically decorated dining room draws eyes to yellow walls and a pair of turquoise doors, poplar floorboards, custom-designed wooden tables, and exposed brickwork keep the space rooted in rustic tones. A mural fuses the two disparate color schemes with a soft depiction of an urban scene, which includes towering skyscrapers, vintage automobiles, and New York's iconic aqueducts.
Some see traditional bagel making as a dwindling art, but the bakers at Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company remain dedicated to their craft. While most of their neighbors are fast asleep, the staff is hard at work in the shops' kitchens mixing bagel dough from unbleached, unbromated
flour. They hand-roll their bagels before tossing them in a boiling kettle of water, then bake them to a golden finish. This effort pays off: Eat This New York noted the "yeasty, malty smells" upon walking inside, then praised the bagels as "crunchy and warm" with "soft and chewy" insides.
The shops offer plenty of variety, from 100% organic spelt-flour bagels to more than a dozen cream cheese spreads in such tantalizing flavors as diavolo chipotle, bacon scallion, and strawberry. For those philosophically opposed to eating anything in circular form, they also concoct breakfast specialties such as challah French toast and organic steel-cut oatmeal. The staff pours steaming cups of coffee , tea, and espresso, as well as cold-brews iced coffee and squeezes each glass of orange
juice to order. For lunch, diners can chow down on Boar's Head
deli sandwiches, build-your-own salads, and gluten-free wraps.
