Part 2 in a Series.
Every morning at 6 a.m., genuine New York bagels bake in the oven as Dina and Harry Mucovic open their cafĂ© and grill. In the glass cases appear bagels, homemade cookies, muffins and other sweets to await customers at the newly opened My Girls CafĂ© & Grill, 1121 Northern Blvd, Clarks Summit.
The cafĂ©, named after the couple's three daughters is one of several new businesses locally to open its doors.
Dina Mucovic opened the business Sept. 17 in the former site of Euro CafĂ©, and with help from husband, Harry, offers a variety of menu items for breakfast including pancakes, stuffed French toast, Belgian waffles and omelets. Don't forget a morning cup of joe. On the lunch menu, customers will find hot and cold sandwiches, children's meal options, sides and salads using Boar's Head deli meats and cheeses. Uncle Sal's, for example, is one of the specialty sandwiches named after family members, and features Boar's Head roast beef with gravy, caramelized onions, mozzarella cheese and mashed potatoes.
We're here to listen to the customers' requests and what they want, said Dina Mucovic. Vegetarian and meatless options and homemade soups are available. Their hours: Tuesday to Friday, 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We're trying to bring a little bit of that flavor (New York deli) here, said Harry Mucovic. To order takeout items, trays of cookies and larger quantities of bagels, or for more information regarding daily specials, call 570.586.8860.
