Restaurant Road Trip: Bagel Crust Cafe

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day, and after eating at the Bagel Crust Cafe, there is no doubt it's the most delicious!

The cafe has been rolling out hundreds of homemade bagels since it opened its doors a few months ago.

Bagel Crust Cafe Manager Sarah Hill said, "We bake our bagels here. So, they are fresh everyday, and they are New York Style bagels."

Traditionally, New York bagels are boiled before they are baked, to give them that soft center.

"We have a lady who does all the cream cheeses. We mix that by hand and everything then we do added ingredients," Hill added.

Regular bagels are $1.10 each, or $11 for a dozen.

Our anchor, Marisa Matyola's inner Jersey girl, was itching to ask the most important question, "Do you guys sell pork roll?"

Hill responded, "We do! A lot of the college students that come in and others as well, will say "I'm so happy that you are here. We have been wanting a really good bagel place. Do you sell pork roll?"

Now, for those not familiar with pork roll, it's a processed pork product made with a mix of spices, salt and preservatives that is smoked before being packaged. If that's not your thing, the breakfast sandwich menu is full of variety.

"The hangover is one of our specialty sandwiches for breakfast, and we do sell breakfast all day long as well. That seems to be very popular. It has two eggs, sausage, bacon and cheese on a bagel of your choice," said Hill.

Service at Bagel Crust Cafe is quick and efficient. 

Alex McFarland, cafe employee said, "Every week, we do specials. We do contests for retweets. You could win a free bagel. We also do polls. It's just an easy way to stay connected with everybody."
