As breakfast analogies go, the bagel is to the donut as cream cheese is to wig adhesive. Affix a savory breakfast to your face with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of bagels, sandwiches, salads, and more at Bagel Junction in the Village at Newtown Shopping Center in Newtown.
While the main draw lies in its daily made kettle-boiled bagels, Bagel Junction's menu also features an impressive spread of sandwiches, soups, salads, smoothies, and coffee. Each bagel, like a tasty golden ouroboros, reflects the telltale imperfections of a baked good crafted by a loving human hand rather than a mechanical gargoyle claw. Eat one with a schmear of homemade cream cheese and layer of lox ($3.25) or stacked with turkey, pastrami, corned beef, and all the fixings of a true sandwich ($8.69). A bastion of versatility, Bagel Junction serves sandwiches in panini ($7.99), wrap ($6.99), and hero ($7.50–$14.49) varieties. Breakfast bagel sandwiches ($3.49–$4.49) stuffed with fluffy eggs and gooey cheese pair with piping hot coffee as naturally as Tom Hanks and a French mastiff. Finding endless inspiration in bread dough, Bagel Junction also serves two-person pizza pies ($5.99–$7.99) and a bevy of baked goods, including muffins, cookies, and pretzels. Take your eats to go or pull up to one of the casual café or sidewalk tables and chow down.
