We ordered breakfast in the cafe/counter service side of Zabar's (the entrance on the corner of the building,) and were disappointed with the pre-packaged bagels and salmon. The bagels tasted of olive juice (from the olive stuffed into the center) and were pre-smeared with cream cheese then wrapped in cling film. The blintz were warmed in the microwave. The place...

I want to compliment you and your staff on their professional and efficient service and packaging. From the ordering at 11:30 PM Wednesday night to the email communications and very cold delivery this morning at 9:30 AM. The white fish is delish and we cannot wait to try the Osetra caviar. Everything else will also gets its due. I'm sure... More

I was sent for the hot, NY pastrami sandwich. After maps.googlescum first took me to E.A.T. (owned by Eli Zabar) where there is no pastrami, I walked to the real Zabar's. The sandwich shop is right on the corner. NO PASTRAMI HERE EITHER. I walked out the door to check the other part of Zabar's (the grocery) but I saw... More

Zabar's is New York, New York is Zabar's. We have been customers for years when we lived in Manhattan, and love to revisit. For us it is a trip into the past. Family owned - three generations business is thriving on the Upper West Side for over eighty years...and there is a good reason for it. The freshness of everything... More

Also featured in "You've Got Mail", Zabar's has amazing deals, great coffee, heavenly babka and a luncheonette next door with amazing matzo ball soup and the best black & white cookies I have ever had (the size of a salad plate). Worth the trip and the chaos (both the store and luncheonette are tiny). A must visit for anyone looking... More

An institution for more than 80 years, Zabar's offers a true New York coffee/deli experience in the Upper West Side. Breakfast sandwiches, bagels, sweets and more - and visit the wonderful Zabar's market with an incredible smoked fish section and bakery right next door.

I really liked Zabar's. I bought a few things from the upstairs kitchen store, where the selection is amazing and the prices are not bad. I also enjoyed buying from the bakery and gourmet food store. I bought a delicious blueberry crumble cake, which was fresh and addictive. I also bought coffee beans, tea, and cookies to bring back to... More

Wanted to experience the typical NYC breakfast, bagels, coffee and OJ. So doing research found Zabars. Instead experienced grumpy attitude, hey I'm from London, trying to figure stuff out. Got a great Rueban panini but coffee was weak. Not a welcoming place and over rated. 2 blocks from my apartment, didn't bother going back.

Guests insist I bring them to Zabar's for chocolate crossaints (I'm often asked to bring Zabar's chocolate crossaints when I'm traveling to see friends/family), though there's plenty of other great baked goods (e.g., rugulah, babka, muffins) & pre-prepared foods to satisfy any hunger pain. The busy & often-crowded corner cafe carries some products not found in the store (& visa-versa)... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
