Three Hearty and Delicious Sandwich Combinations from Leo’s Bagels

Nothing beats a good New York City bagel, and Lower Manhattan’s own Leo’s Bagels makes some of the best in the city. (We’re biased, but it’s true!). You can’t go wrong with any of their offerings, even if you opt for a lox and caper concoction on a cinnamon bagel like Cynthia Nixon. In addition to all the classic spreads and shmears, Leo’s makes some fun specialty sandwiches featuring everything from eggs to latkes to more latkes. 

Consider these three the next time you swing by 3 Hanover Square. 

The Hanover Hangover

A breakfast sandwich for the heavy hitters, this jam-packed twist on the bacon, egg and cheese comes with quite a few toppings: two eggs, bacon, sausage, cheddar cheese and a potato latke. While this isn’t what we’d consider a daily sammy — although, hey, you do you — as the name suggests, that protein-and-carb combo will definitely come in handy when you’ve imbibed a tad too much the night before. 

The Boychick

Another mouth-waterer, this hefty bad boy comes with two eggs, Nova Scotia salmon, potato latke and a shmear of cream cheese. The salty salmon pairs exceptionally well with the latke and eggs, and the sandwich is so flavorful that it makes even a plain bagel stand out. 

The Whole Shebang

Making your bubbe proud, this baby is a cream-cheese-and-lox concoction with all the fixings: “Everything” Nova Scotia salmon, scallion cream cheese, tomatoes, Bermuda onions, cucumbers and capers, helpfully sandwiched by an everything bagel (natch). This is how Leo’s owner Adam Pomerantz likes to eat his bagel, and he’s a bagel wizard, so trust him. 

One final note: Bagel sandwiches are always delicious, but a great bagel doesn’t necessarily need a bunch of fillings to fill you up. The bagels at Leo’s are their own centerpiece, and taste just as good with a shmear of plain or scallion cream cheese as they do with all the fixings.
