Bagels and engagement rings share a common shape, but garner two very different reactions when offered to every coworker in a morning meeting. Start the day off smiling with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a $20 gift card for bagels, donuts, sandwiches, and café fare at St. Pete Bagel Co. in Largo.
Rabbi Uriel Rivkin presides over each day's fresh batch of certified-kosher dough rings, which await creamy spreads at the head of a full café menu. Like a teenage Pillsbury Doughboy, bagels ($1.09 each) from more than a dozen varieties develop complexions riddled with salt, poppy seed, and sesame before hiding beneath lox ($2.57), jalapeño-salsa cream cheese ($3.60), and more than 15 other spreads. In addition to using circular comestibles, chefs stock stomachs with a thousand-island-slathered Reuben ($5.95), gooey cinnamon rolls ($1.90), and grill-branded paninis. A flurry of buzzing espresso infusions ($1.03+), healthy juices, and Blue Mountain coffees ($1.35+) also work hard at St. Pete Bagel Co. as they awaken bagels from nightmares of having to eat their own friends.
Fresh-baked bagels congregate in shelves behind smiling employees, filling orders at a sun-drenched café counter. Diners settle into wood and leather stools to enjoy their sweet and savory bites, complemented by colorful flora and tabletop bagel photos snapped at the food pyramid’s class reunion.
St. Pete Bagel Co.
Since 1987, St. Pete Bagel Co.'s bakers have crafted New York–style bagels and both old-fashioned and yeast-raised donuts every morning. Rabbi Uriel Rivkin presides over each day's batch of certified-kosher dough rings bedecked with salt, onions, and poppy seeds, which share space with sandwiches and assorted spreads on the café menu. Fluffy and sweet specialty donuts such as PB&J, red velvet, and strawberry-glazed bike tire join coffee and espresso drinks for maximum donut slam-dunks. Around the shop, wood and leather stools seat diners, who can pass the time by admiring colorful flora and photos of bagels snapped at the food pyramid’s class reunion.
