Bag the deal

A bagel smeared with cream cheese and stacked with veggies offers an unexplainable ala carte lunch satisfaction.

You can pick a suggested sandwich or build your own. Staff pick: a cold turkey with garlic and herb cream cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and cucumber on a wheat everything bagel.

Deal: $9.45 with chips and a drink
