If you're looking for a New York-style breakfast in the college town of Athens, look no further than Ideal Bagel Co., set inside a former toy store. On any given morning, you'll see students and townies lingering over their morning bagel and cup of strong Counter Culture coffee.
Choose your variety of bagel with all the fixings like shmear, lox and capers or pick one of the signature bagels with toppings like pastrami, eggs and cheese. For lunch, grab one of their deli sandwiches on bread from their own bakery.
Ideal Bagel is open from 7 am to 3 pm Monday to Friday, 8 am to 3 pm on Saturday and closed on Sunday.
