The place offer a wide choice of bagel and bialy. They make there own bagel on site. Difficult to be understood by one of the waitress, who could easily be qualified of being rude with customers

Waited in line for a bit, but this allowed us to finalize our orders - there is a decent selection of bagels/bialys and toppings to choose from - the whitefish was very delicious. The service was efficient and friendly. The bagels were great, and the...More

Visited based on other reviews and this shop's ranking on best bagel lists but found the bagels a bit lackluster. Service was friendly. Be aware that's there's virtually no seating so don't plan on being able to eat in.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
