New York Breakfast-- the Bread Factory

The bagel: a European invention perfected by New Yorkers. For me, there is nothing that says New York like an Everything bagel with cream cheese, coffee, and some newspapers. In college and grad school, a bagel at Bruegger's with some coffee and a newspaper made me feel so sophisticated-- there's just something about it.
The Bread Factory, which has three locations in Manhattan, is one of Terry's favorite spots. When he lived in NY during some summers, he would go to the Bread Factory and people watch. Naturally, he took me there to do the same thing. The bagels in New York-- and I've had them at places other than the Bread Factory, of course-- are so different from here. Marx bagels are good, but there's something about the water that makes bagels in New York far superior.
And yes, that's the New York Post. Such a guilty pleasure.
