We’re not named Big City Bagel Café for no reason; our bagels and bagel sandwiches are some of our most popular, and dare we say, most delicious items. But that’s not to say our menu is lacking! If you find yourself always ordering your go-to bagel and schmear, switch things up and try something new. Here are some of our favorite BCB food items that are sure to make your mouth water.
1. Oatmeal Cup
Chilly mornings call for a warm, comforting breakfast and you can personalize our Oatmeal Cup to make it the perfect start to your day. You can add strawberries, bananas, cranberries, coconut, chocolate chips, almonds, granola, sunflower seeds, honey, or brown sugar to top your oatmeal, and because there are so many choices, you can keep combining for a unique meal every time you visit.
2. The “BCB Fit” Breakfast Sandwich
Not every one of our breakfast sandwiches is dished out on a bagel. Made with egg whites, avocado, turkey bacon, and a dash of hot sauce, you can confidently start your day knowing you made a healthy choice for breakfast.
3. 42nd Street Crepe
Whether you choose to start your day with something sweet or want a sugary pick-me-up later in the day, the 42nd Street Crepe has you covered. It’s made with butter, strawberries, bananas, cinnamon sugar, brown sugar, and topped with whipped cream.
Sure you’ve heard of the BLT, but at BCB we take things up a notch. Our BALT is made with bacon, avocado, lettuce, and tomatoes. That’s not all though, we also add cheddar cheese, mayo, and spicy mustard to create a mouthwatering sandwich that might become your favorite.
5. Cali Reuben
As one of our “High-Rise” sandwiches, you can bet the Cali Reuben is packed with meat. Made with pastrami, red onion, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and spicy mustard on whole grain bread, this sandwich is as good (if not better) as any you could get at a New York City deli.
Our Village veggie sandwich is also piled high—with hummus spread, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, cucumbers, carrots, bell peppers, sprouts, and avocado. So it’s hearty enough to keep you energized throughout the day.
7. Roosevelt Crepe
If you’re trying something different, nix the bagel and the sandwich bread and get your favorite breakfast items inside of a crepe. The Roosevelt Crepe is made with egg, bacon, cheddar cheese, mushroom, spinach, and tomato, so you can consider it a healthy breakfast or hearty lunch, depending on when you’re ordering.
8. The Loft
The tuna melt is a classic sandwich that’s hard to beat. Ours—named The Loft—is made with tuna salad, tomatoes, red onion, and melted cheddar cheese. Grilled and served warm, it’s the perfect compliment to a cup of soup or chilly day.
9. Cheese Pizza Bagel
We realize the cheesy goodness that is our Cheese Pizza Bagel does in fact include a bagel, but hear us out. With pizza sauce, muenster and cheddar cheese, oregano (and pepperoni or veggies if you choose to add those) so good, you’ll feel like you just ordered a slice from your favorite pizza shop.
10. Kale Salad
Those looking for a deliciously healthy option can order our Kale Salad. It’s made with kale, feta cheese, almonds, cranberries, and avocado, and topped with lemon and olive oil dressing, so just because it’s good for you, doesn’t mean it skimps on flavor.
