Toasted Bagel: For the Cinderellas in Brickell
Khalid and Islam Mohammed look almost identical wearing plaid button ups loosened at the top with striped ties. They almost don't look like they should be making bread products, but rather driving the Hogwarts express. While the brothers opt for a different kind of magic, their bagel shop is still strangely charming. We previewed it this past May, and it opened recently at the stroke of midnight, just in time for the Cinderellas of Brickell. While that may seem like an odd hour to open, it's actually the time Toasted Bagel Company will begin operation every Saturday.

Monday thru Friday, Toasted operates on more normal working hours -- for breakfast anyway -- from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays -- or late night Friday and Saturday, really -- midnight to 4 p.m is bagel time. Bagels are made fresh, from the water to the dough, to the actual baked bread product, and you can even watch Khalid as from the outside window of the shop or as you order and eat our bagel - should he be bageling at that time.
