Although donuts foolishly experiment with shaping themselves like nonagons, rhombuses, and Gen. Douglas MacArthur, bagels are forever content with circular simplicity. Experience the platonic form of kettle-boiled deliciousness with today's deal: for $4, you get $8 worth of bagels, sandwiches, and more at The Bagel Shop, near the College of Charleston campus.
Locally owned and operated, The Bagel Shop specializes in authentic, New York–style kettle-boiled bagels, made fresh daily in 12 different varieties. Bread-ring biters can make a meal out of a single bagel ($1.10), available in flavors such as pumpernickel, garlic, and poppy seed. Slather plain housemade cream cheese on a multigrain bagel ($2.40), or experiment with exotic cream cheese flavors, freshly folded with such tasty accoutrements as jalapeño cheddar, scallions, and sun-dried tomatoes ($3.50 with bagel). Wash down a mouthful of bagel benevolence with a cup of Intelligentsia direct-trade coffee ($1.85–$2.05) or a loose-leaf organic oolong tea ($2.50 for regular / $3.75 for seasonal), served hot or iced.
The rest of The Bagel Shop's menu features the likely suspects of any classic deli lineup. Morning masticators can munch on omelettes ($3.25) and freshly grilled egg sandwiches ($2.75), while luncheoneers can feast on a cornucopia of salads, sandwiches, and paninis. Signature stackables include the cheesesteak sandwich ($7.95) with sliced rib eye, Vidalia onions, and melty cheese, and the grilled turkey panini ($7.50), which reunites the New World with Rome as effectively as it did on the First Thanksgiving in 1492.
