We love the hustle and bustle dining experience. No one can beat their bagels and chicken salad. When we want to stay in our pj’s pick-up is the best way to go!

There is nothing I would not order on the huge menu from the scrumptious matzo ball soup to the scoop of California Tuna Salad on the Garden Salad ( try the amazing vinaigrette dressing!) to corned beef on rye, to the stellar bagels (a bargain at $5.95 a dozen after 4:00 daily). It's all tasty, fresh and fabulous. Did I mention the chocolate chip and pretzel balls? Oh, my! This place is Foodie Heaven.

Very good breakfast in a noisy restaurant with very tight spacing between tables. Self service pretty much.

They have an extensive menu. It would be extremely hard to go here and not find something to order that you would enjoy. Everything that I have ever had here has been delicious. Not fine dining, but really good food. I have been here at least a dozen times without disappointment.

This place will not disappoint. Close your eyes and you are transformed into a NYC Jewish deli with all the fixins. The bagels are heavenly and most midwesterners don't know what a bialey is but you must try one.
You order at the counter and they bring you the food to your table. Sandwiches are piled high with meat and cheese. The bread and bakery items melt in your mouth. This place is a lil piece of NYC heaven.
From the outside, it looks like a lil unassuming strip center restaurant BUT when you open the door the smells and amazing treats in the deli counter will have your taste buds jumping!
Enjoy and take some bagels or other treats home!
