The bagel may have originated in Poland a few decades ago, but there’s no doubt that Main Street Bagel Café in Folsom has mastered making the world famous roll-with-a-hole.

My trip to the café went something like this: I walked in unsure of what I wanted to suppress my hunger and was baffled by the grand bagel variations. With a selection of more than 25 different flavored bagels to choose from, I was sure the combinations for creating the ultimate sandwich were infinite. So I took the employee’s suggestion to try the Turkey Avocado Sandwich on a Spinach-Parmesan Bagel. When the sandwich was placed before me, the mouthwatering look of my favorite ingredients stacked inside a warm, toasted bagel was irresistible. It contained layers of turkey, crisp lettuce, slices of tomato, cucumber, green peppers, red onions, avocado and fresh pepperoncinis. With the added taste of mayonnaise and mustard (are you convinced yet?), the bagel sandwich had more zest than I bargained for. The combination of so many ingredients made every bite tasty. After indulging in the meal, my taste buds were left highly satisfied; I left the café confident I’d return for more. Main Street Bagel Café, 1125 Riley Street, Folsom, 916-983-6444.
