Sandwiches

Gezunte, which also goes by the name Books and Bagels, is a cozy kosher bakery serving bagels, sandwiches, and coffee alongside books on Jewish spirituality and food. It's a far cry from the packed bagel shops in commuter-laden areas, as you're invited to sit and enjoy within the cafe. In a unique twist on New York bagel preparation, if you ask for yours toasted you'll be getting it flattened in a panini press. This gives more all-around crunch and warmth to the bagel, so we're not complaining about this unique method.
