If you can't have a big breakfast in the winter months, when can you? Don't miss another a.m. opportunity — direct the steering wheel toward the Bagel Deli, at East Hampden Avenue and South Monaco Parkway, for the signature Eggs Bagel-Dict.
Let the menu description stand for itself: "A toasted fresh bagel or English muffin and a blanket of pastrami, topped with two poached eggs, and covered with hollandaise sauce. $9.95."
Substitute turkey, avocado or lox for the pastrami (lox costs $1 extra), and rest assured you won't need lunch after this meal.
The Bagel Deli is one of Denver's most charming breakfast spots. No frills, just straightforward Jewish deli food (bagels, lox, matzo brei, rugelach, brisket, chicken soup, all the good stuff) served with care, attention and a sense of humor. (Got a party of four or five? Order up The Royal Gorge: "Healthy portions of lox, cod, whitefish, blintzes or potato latkes; sides of egg salad and chopped liver or herring; 1/2 dozen toasted bagels with butter & cream cheese, garnished with olives, onions, tomatoes, pickles & capers. $59.95").
On your way out, pick up some halvah or a loaf of challah.
