Bagel Breakfast Sandwich, Shine

A warm and delicious breakfast sandwich from Shine cafe is a great way to kick off the work week. Each order is customizable depending on what Bella Bru bagels are available, plus choice of cheese and protein. The combo I craved was a spinach bagel with soyrizo, eggs and cheddar. The sandwich ($7) is lightly panini-pressed so the bagel comes out soft and chewy, making it the perfect vessel for a generous layer of spicy soyrizo, the fluffiest eggs and plenty of melted cheddar. Bonus: The woman who’s usually behind the food station proportions every component perfectly so that each bite has a little bit of everything. It’s a portable breakfast that will liven up the Monday blues. 1400 E St.,
