In the Towne Center Shopping Plaza, the one that has the Shop Rite, in Montgomery, NY there sits a little gem of a restaurant called Blazing Bagels. This has been a favorite of our family for years as they make the best bagels in the area, and some really good sandwiches on those bagels.
I hadn't been there in some time and I wanted a nice breakfast sandwich so I popped in today for a quick bite. I got a bacon, egg and cheese on a jalapeño bagel and a small coffee for $4.65, tax included. The sandwich was delightful, as good as ever and the coffee good (they grind it fresh). They also have Lana's homemade soups and you can get a sandwich on various breads too.
So forget the chains for breakfast (and lunch) and go visit a locally owned restaurant where you can get a great meal for less.
