Despite what this eatery’s moniker may suggest, the cooks at Baker’s Dozen Bagels serve up a diverse menu. In addition to smearing dough rounds with nine flavors of cream cheese, they stack them high with Boar’s Head cold cuts to create an array of sandwiches. Their breakfast menu reads like a ‘best of’ list of American classics, jumpstarting guests’ days with cheesy breakfast wraps and Greek omelets loaded with tomatoes and feta. Even their baked goods expand beyond circular treats with muffins, croissants, and fruit-filled turnovers.
Though the staff at Oradek's Coffee House make an excellent espresso and serve up delicious desserts and Belgian chocolates, their signature dish easily outstrips the rest for one simple reason: it combines all three. Staff blend together shots of their house espresso with a scoop of ice cream to create their signature shake, the shottie. To this energizing dessert they can add mix-ins of the customer's choice, including chunks of Heath bars or the interweaving flavors of dark chocolate, peanut butter, and banana.
Just because their signature dish is a shake doesn't mean the house baristas don't know the secrets of brewing the proverbial perfect cup of coffee. They grind and brew a rotating selection of single-origin coffees using French-press, pour-over, or cold-brewing techniques, allowing them to control the drink's strength and taste. The nearby chefs complement the house beverages with cafe dishes from a range of cuisines They offer spicy sushi rolls alongside flaky chocolate croissants—uniting Japanese and French influences, like cutting a baguette with a samurai sword.
