Unlike most breads, the bagel contains a strategically placed hole that makes it easy to spy on neighbors, political figures, and unpatriotic birds. Keep an eye out for suspicious characters with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of bagels and drinks at Bagel Brothers of New York, with three locations in Port St. Lucie and one in Stuart.
Joseph Carfino has brought 20 years of New York–style bagel-crafting experience to Florida with a menu of chewy flavors. Chefs bake a host of bagel flavors each day, including french toast, cinnamon raisin, garlic, and jalapeño ($1.10 each; add $0.35 for specialty flavors). As the bagel-shaped sun rises, bagel halves bookend eggs, meat, and cheese in a breakfast sandwich ($4.25) substantial enough to fuel three-legged marathons. Guests bedazzle bagel sandwiches ($7.75) or wraps ($7.75) with Boar's Head meat and cheese in a spectrum of sweet and savory flavors, from honey-maple turkey and genoa salami to muenster and pepper jack cheese. The maple delight panini ($7.75) takes the sandwiches arts a step further by pressing together turkey, swiss cheese, maple-peppered bacon, and honey mustard, and a chicken salad sandwich cools tongues hot from tying cherry stems into Boy Scout knots with sliced grapes, chopped celery, and pecans ($7.75).
