This Ohio-loving, toaster-shunning shop steams every bagel it serves, and if that sounds weird, you obviously haven’t had one of its warm, soft sandwiches yet. Steaming the bagels (or, if you must, wraps and sub rolls) makes ambitious sandwiches like the “Crunch & Munch” (stuffed with turkey, smoked cheddar, lettuce, honey mustard, parmesan peppercorn dressing and nacho cheese doritos) and “Mikey’s Munch” (roast beef, pepperjack, avocado and peppercorn dressing) soft and manageable to eat. If it’s a crisp bagel you prefer, though, you’re out of luck.
