Cheap Eats 2009: Bagels and…

Great food, low prices, lots of fun

Why go: One reason: the bagels and bialys (the bagel’s flatter, holeless cousin). You won’t find better without making a trip to New York—maybe. The place also stocks good-quality lox, whitefish, and sable in the deli case.

What to get: A bagel or bialy with nova or belly lox; a baker’s dozen bagels or bialys to go.

Best for: Stocking up for a week’s breakfasts or a party or other event.

Insider tip: The bialys last barely an hour after the place opens, so show up early.

Open daily for breakfast and lunch.
