Coffeeneuring - Seventh Cup

I locked my bike to a picnic table.

Seventh Cup - Monday, November 11 - Burlington Bagel Bakery
My final coffeeneuring run was tacked onto a ride to Lowes for paint. On my way home I stopped by Burlington Bagel Bakery in South Burlington where I could get lunch and coffeeneur. Once the only bagel provider in the region, the business expanded, outgrowing it's original location in downtown Burlington. It has, however, gone through growing pains; the business branched out into several locations, but then competition took hold—we are big bagel fans here—and currently only the South Burlington shop remains.

There are numerous businesses along busy auto-centric Route 7. Most lack adequate bike parking and the bagel shop was no exception. Surrounded by asphalt, the property is devoid of trees or fencing that might double as post for locking a bike. Ugh. I was lucky that it was a brisk afternoon; picnic tables were empty and provided ample space for my bike.

Parking difficulty aside, the bagels are still first rate. I drank a tall Oregon Chai Latte, accompanied by chicken salad on rosemary bagel. The filling was fresh, oozing out, reminding me how it's a mouth workout to consume a bagel sandwich. The latte could've had more flavor, but I drank every bit and struggled homeward with a full belly.

Total mileage: 9 miles.
