Frugal Floozie Friday: Revive

This toasty, creamy, gooey treat is the Nutella Bagel - Nutella and sliced bananas on a toasted cinnamon raisin bagel - that you can find at Revive, today's Frugal Floozie Friday feature.  A luscious snack, I've been craving it since the day I tried it.  At only $3.95, it falls well within our mandatory budget of only $5 per person, too ... that's pretty hard to resist!

But if you'd like to eat more nobly when you visit this bright and welcoming spot that offers light meals and snacks, then enjoy a creamy yogurt parfait - a sweet concoction of vanilla yogurt combined with lovely cut fruits and organic granola - that you can find for only $3.50.  It was rich and brightly flavored, a perfect size without either being too generous or causing me to wish it were larger.

Fresh fruit, bagels with cream cheese, a wide variety of pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and many beverages (coffees, tea, sodas, and smoothies) are also available for less than $5 each.  Many of these are provided by local businesses, too, from Mighty Good Coffee, Barry BagelsZingerman's Bakehouse, and the Pastry Peddler.

There's even a "create your own salad" option, starting with a base of $2.95 for greens and dressing; then you can choose from a wide variety of fresh options (priced individually) - vegetables, cheeses, proteins, nuts, fruits - to make your own unique dish.  Revive is very vegetarian- and vegan-friendly, and also serves beer and wine, which are 50% off from 3-6 p.m.

So stop by this bright, friendly, welcoming spot conveniently located on Central Campus to revive and refresh yourself with a treat or a beverage or a light meal.  You'll be so glad that you did!

I've said it before and I'll say it again.. I love that you have not run out of the places to highlight for the mandatory $5 a person! It's nice to know there are so many place that still have reasonably priced food!

Oh my! I love Nutella and bagels. This sounds like a dream!

That place looks great! If I'd been there I would have ordered a yogurt granola fruit parfait. As it is, well, I hate to say it, but I had last night's dessert for breakfast. I know I know ... but I couldn't help it. Actually, I thought of YOU because of what I was eating. Cherry upside-down cake, which I'm posting next Friday. I always think of Michigan when I have cherries!

What a fantastic looking bagel! I love Nutella so much. I wish we had a place that had a salad bar like that one. It's so hard for me to find something healthy and delicious for lunch if I don't bring my own. That would be a wonderful addition to restaurant scene. And such good deals too!
