JP’s Bagel Place (Hollywood)
***** JP’s Bagel Place, 2649 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, Florida 33020 (954) 921-9483.
My money says…that every “neighborhood” in America has a joint just like JP’s Bagel Place…for sure, the names are different, but the decor-ambiance-food-service-prices are basically the same.
JP’s Bagel Place in Hollywood, has been around since 1982. This joint is a “neighborhood” diner and seats maybe 20. JP’s does breakfast-lunch, Monday-Friday 7am-2pm and Saturday-Sunday 7am-1pm. Take a look at its website at www.jpbagel.com for menu/prices.
JP’s Bagel is not a “typical” South Florida bagel-deli with 522 types of bagels and 91 different cream cheese spreads…but rather, shall we say, a mini-diner/lunchonette…very similar to those that dotted the United States in the 1950’s-1980’s…long before guys like Starbuck’s arrived on the scene. Guaranteed, this joint’s waitresses will “remember” you after you have eaten there once or twice.
I love joints like JP’s…real easy going atmosphere, terrific wait-staff and cheeseburgers/fries that go for $4.75 and chicken parm subs for $6.25.
If you live in JP’s neighborhood, you now know about a great place for a casual-inexpensive breakfast or lunch.
By the way, as a kid growing up in Brooklyn in the 1950’s-1960’s “my” JP’s were, The Federal Restaurant, George’s Restaurant and Sammy’s Lunchonette…and that $4.75 cheeseburger/fries cost 40 cents…but, that’s a story for another day.
