Like black holes, bagels are dense, round, and were originally invented to transport poppy seeds. Ponder the physics of cream cheese with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one dozen bagels or bagel flats, a half pound of plain cream cheese, and a half pound of your choice of flavored cream cheese at The Bagel Club (up to a $21 value). This Groupon is valid at both of The Bagel Club's locations in Bayside.
The Bagel Club constructs circles of boiled-batter delights for bagel believers. In addition to the classic bagel, carb curtailers can load their buckets up with a dozen bagel flats for slicing open and slathering with spreads. More than 10 flavors of cream cheese provide options for all, including savory lox, sweet strawberry, and the double-identity spinach and garlic for those who won't be bound by one type of bite. It's suggested to call ahead for your order and be prepared to pay cash only.
Bagel Club's expansive menu ranges beyond its titular baked good, encompassing specialties such as pretzels and raisin-studded challah bread. Chefs also pile smoked fish—including sturgeon and lox—atop bagels, crack three eggs for each of their omelets, and fill sandwiches with deli meat or seafood salads. They can also add flavor to bagels or depleted scratch 'n' sniff stickers with more than a dozen specialty spreads, including chocolate-chip, spinach-and-garlic, and blueberry varieties of cream cheese.
