The bagel has been the pristine edible template of quality smearing since the hey-days of Patti LaBelle. Honor the greats with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of bagels, schmears, sandwiches, coffee, and more at Big City Bagels & Deli.

Big City Bagels supports its mathematical generosity with its bagels, made fresh daily in store, and never with fat, cholesterol, additives, or preservatives. Combine an all-star arrangement of mood-boosting bagels from a wide variety of flavors and recipes, including sesame, onion, garlic, jalapeño, everything, nothing, and sun-dried tomato ($0.99/bagel, $7.99/baker's dozen). Upgrade any circular creation with flavored cream cheeses ($2.99) or reinvent the wheel with any bagel sandwich on the menu, such as the veggie-pizza bagel—an open-faced feast dressed in fresh tomatoes, red onions, bell peppers, and gooey melted muenster and cheddar, sprinkled lightly in oregano ($4.49). If your throat tickles with thirst, heed the happy heads-up with a classic espresso ($1.55 for a small), a fair-trade organic coffee ($1.65 for a small), or the liquid tranquility lurking within a 20-ounce blended Reese's drink ($4.25).

In addition to bagels and drinks, the friendly deli workers also prepare plenty of salads, chopped salads, soups, chopped soups, breakfast sandwiches, and more. Due to the restraints of time, character count, and long-distance telephone rates, the breadth of the menu can only be truly appreciated in person. Stop by the shop and peer through the gaping hole of a bagel to reveal the delicious light at the end of the dough-based tunnel.
