Bright and early, at 6 a.m. six days a week – 7 a.m. on the seventh – sleepy Oklahomans make their way to a café that serves breakfast and lunch on that most perfect round, chewy, starchy breakfast pastry: the bagel. Old School Bagel Cafe, based in Oklahoma City, operates 11 shops statewide – with two more slated to open this year – and serves thousands of bagels daily. Whether topped simply with cream cheese or sandwiching breakfast or lunch favorites, these traditional, New York-style bagels are a hot commodity. Bagels are boiled to create a chewy outside and a tender crumb inside. Enjoy a breakfast bagel with bacon, egg and cheese and a cup of coffee in the mornings, then come back for lunch. Try a traditional sandwich, like a Reuben on rye, or opt for the tangy egg salad, served with lettuce and tomatoes, on a bagel. Eleven locations statewide. www.oldschoolbagelcafe.com
