Every day at their four locations, they whip up batches of fresh bagels in more than 23 flavors, such as cinnamon crunch and jalapeno bialy. But it's not just the bagels that are made fresh daily?everything from their macaroni to their 12 flavors of house-made cream cheese, available in flavors from honey vanilla to cheesecake, complement each bagel. Bagel World's sub and Kaiser rolls are likewise baked daily, rather than hastily assembled by squishing leftover bagels together. They serve as the foundation to half-pound sandwiches made with Boar's Head meats such as corned beef and cracked pepper turkey. All these can be washed down with coffee brewed from house-roasted beans or freshly-made smoothies.

Prudence Manolov is an artist. But you don't have to stand at a distance when viewing her work. Not even for the pieces that take her up to 20 hours to create.
She wants you to eat them.
Manolov's most-prized works of art are her specialty cakes, whose sculptural, airbrushed designs and unusual flavors have earned her feature spots on Fox-35 News and at events celebrating everything from marriage to a baby's first insulin spike.

Along with elaborate cake creations, which have taken shapes ranging from footballs to seated mermaids, she and her bakery staff create gourmet cupcakes, cream puffs, cannolis, brownies, and other pastries.
