With still-warm breads and bagels, this small local chain is a carb-lover's heaven-on-earth.. In Short Locally-owned, these eateries sport a crisp clean style with their brushed steel tables and matching countertops. (An eclectic mix of richly colored vintage prints warms the cool interiors.) While the bakery's rep rests solidly on its variety of breads, oversized bagels, huge muffins and buttery croissants, the menu also includes sandwiches, salads and homemade soups. Vegetarian and low-fat options balance out the offerings in conflict with the Atkins and South Beach diets.
