I have never had a better bagel before; fresh bagels with the variety of toppings. Coffee was decent. Highly recommended!

Excellent cream cheese and salmon on an onion bagel. I haven't been here for about four years and it was better than I remembered. I came at 6:05am on a Friday, quiet and no queue. Got my order to go in less than 5 minutes.

Still the best bagel in NYC. I go here every time I am in NYC. They got my order perfect and as always load up my bagel with plenty of lox. I went back the next day to get a dozen bagels to take all...the way back to VA. If you do go to pick up a dozen bagels, be sure to bring at least 3 zip lock gallon bags with you, but definitely get them! I can’t wait to come back.More

My favorite spot in the city for a lox and bagel. Super friendly staff, and incredibly quick service despite it almost always being packed!

Great ingredients, delicious food, plentiful fillings. This is definitely worth a try! But it’s really set up for take away as very few tables inside and no restrooms. Try the smoked salmon …it’s an institution

We found this place on a side street around the corner from Macys. Loved the breakfast plates and bagels. I had the everything bagel, and my daughter loved her blueberry bagel, both with cream cheese. We ate bagels almost every morning of our NYC trip,...and these were among the best!More

We had a really good breakfast here. It was crowded but they moved us through quickly. The bagel with lox sandwich was huge and the salmon was really fresh. It's worth a stop for a New York bagel.

I took my son for his first NYC bagel. We got there and the line was out the door. He suggested we go elsewhere and this is when he learned that you wait in line when there is a line for food. The options for...cream cheese and bagel flavors are extensive. They were warm and delicious. If you're not starving share a bagel sandwich, they're huge. Best salt bagel I've had in yearsMore
