toasting debacle at Lenny's I've been on the lookout for other bagel breakfast options in midtown. Thanks to some suggestions from the Midtown Lunch crew, I decided to try out Times Square Hot Bagels. This time not for a bagel and cream cheese, but for an egg and cheese on a bagel...
For $3.50 you can get either an two eggs and cheese on a bagel or as I overheard another customer order, egg whites and cheddar on a bagel. Not bad. Most places charge you extra when you want egg whites. I've tried the egg whites with both "cheese"--of the orange deli sliced variety--and cheddar and while I generally prefer cheddar I must admit that the deli cheese gets meltier and makes for a really good gooey cheesy breakfast sandwich.
The whole wheat bagels are chewy and toothsome. I haven't been there yet when they've been fresh out. Perhaps if I got there earlier in the morning...
In any event, for $3.50, it's a sizeable hot breakfast that will keep you going and no toasting surcharge.
