Fantastic selection of bagels, just what you want for breakfast in NYC. Gets big queues, so be prepared to wait.

This was our first experience of a ‘proper’ bagel shop in NYC. The staff were really helpful and explained the otherwise overwhelming choice of bagels and fillings. The bagels are amazing but it will be a long time before I am able to eat another poor British equivalent! These are amazing and nothing like what we Brits think of as a bagel so proceed with caution if you want to continue to enjoy them in England!

Had heard so much about this place before my visit I had to try! Not the cheapest but definitely the best!

Great place for quick meal but long wait at rush hours 8-10. 12-2. And 5 pm. They are awesome and worth. Large moist bagel and other bread products like bialys. They have all spreads and toppings you can think of including the Elvis. Great spot for brown bagging and decent java. As well. Priced to sell

while in NYC recently, we googled "best bagel in NYC" and was directed to this place. Coincidentally enough, we were already out walking and very close so we headed for it. We rounded a nearby corner to see a line out the door and down the block. Well, we figured, "why not" and waited in line. The line took about 30 minutes until we finally had bagels in hand. They were fresh and toasty and airy and delicious! Now, would I wait in this line daily for one? No. Was it great to experience? yes. would I recommend this place? yes. but, be warned that in the morning hours, you are going to wait a substantial amount of time to get your food.
