Uwishunu just tipped us off to the cream cream cheese and pesto topped bagel at the Satellite Cafe in deep West Philly and damn it sounds good:
The “Bike Shop Special” takes its name from Firehouse Bicycles, above Satellite Cafe, but that’s as far as the connection goes, as far as I can tell. It turns out it’s a bagel– I chose poppyseed– spread with both cream cheese and pesto, and topped with spinach and roasted red peppers. The fresh leaves of spinach and the rich blend of basil and cheese make for one satisfying sandwich.
