L’Chayim Breakfast Bagels

By Ross Boissoneau | March 9, 2019

Fast-food breakfast? No thank you — not when you can get a freshly baked hot bagel sandwich to kick off your day. The crunchy crust of the bagels (made in-house, of course) keep the heat in, so the last bite is every bit as warm and tasty as the first. As for the other kind of heat, try the pepper jack cheese and chorizo — yowza! Owners David Scott and Jonathan Clark are happy to add to the egg and cheese whatever else they have on hand (hint: try the roasted red peppers). If you sleep in till lunchtime, you might want to opt for something more lunch-like: We love the Sinai (pastrami, veggie cream cheese, deli mustard, and red onion on an onion bagel) and the Tripoli (turkey, ham, and hard salami with provolone, lettuce, tomato, and mayo on Jewish rye. Nope, not a bagel). Many of the sandwiches are named for people or places in the Mideast, continuing the theme the owners use to add intrigue and deliver delight. “I think a lot of people wonder why there’s a Jewish deli in Beulah,” said Clark. “So they come in — and then we’ve got them.” We got ours at 274 S. Benzie Blvd., in Beulah. (231) 882-5221. You can also visit L’Chayim on Facebook, and (May–October only) in Frankfort.
