Bolster your morning with an in-house cup of spleen-warming coffee ($2.25) and one of the 30 bagel incarnations, such as apple cinnamon, french toast, or spinach and cheese, topped with a liberal smearing of apple butter ($3.45), avocado ($4.15), or peanut butter ($4.15). For warm-plated protein, opt for an order of sweet cheese blintzes ($7.50) or the eggs benedict, a breakfast platter boasting hollandaise-soused eggs bear-hugging canadian bacon on a bagel bed ($6.50–$9.50). A hearty bagel sandwich, such as the veggie-filled tundra ($8.75) or the corned-beef-stuffed alaskan ($8.95), provides spherical sustenance for midday stomach yodels. The friendly staff serves the hot soup of the day ($3.95+) with a bagel log, which can be dipped into the soup or used as a building block in a future president's humble cabin.
Alaska Bagel Restaurant
It all starts with unbleached flour and a recipe—free from trans fats—that's distinguished Alaska Bagel Restaurant since its original founding in 1994. From there, the restaurant's bakers make more than two dozen varieties of their signature item, bagels, which come in flavors such as asiago cheese, pesto, apple cinnamon, and sun-dried tomato.
Those circles of fresh-baked dough are only the beginning, however. Alaska Bagel's team might top them in a walnut-raisin fruit shmear or use the more savory varieties to construct its signature Mt. McKinley bagel sandwich, which layers together cream cheese, avocado, tomato, onion, and sprouts. The chefs can also grill burgers and load plates high with chicken and waffles.
