This was one of the three bagel places that we tried on our recent trip to NYC. It was the first, but turned out to be the best! I appreciated that their bagels are vegan, and that they had so many vegan cream cheese options....More

I stayed few weeks next to this gem. Almost every morning this was my go to place. It has this some rustic NYC feeling you don't get in many places anymore. Tourist queuing, YES. So prepare to that. I usually was really early, before work...More

Our first bagel in NYC and we weren’t disappointed. I had the chive cream cheese, nova lox, snd onions on a poppy seed. It was very filling and held me through a day of sightseeing.

The service is what I would describe as cliche New York; kind of impatient and irritated. They were out the kind of bagel I wanted (there at lunch time). Lots of options though for breakfast sandwiches, regular sandwiches, pretzels and cream cheese, etc. Honestly, I...More

This is a must stop each time I go to NYC. And I bring some home. Huge selection of bagels and spread. Watch them bake them on -site. Eat them while they are warm. My favorite are Everything and Sesame.

Yes their bagels are good but they seem to be more excited about maintaining a huge line. Tremendously inefficient!!!! They process online orders first even when line out the door so order online. Most lines will take 45 min to get a bagels. There are...More

Too exhausted to go out to eat, we ordered in. It wasn’t hard to meet the minimum order value, and although the delivery charge was outrageous, it’s made clear before you order. The bagels were very good, if a little hard crusted, but the brownie...More

The hype over this place is amazing. Each morning a waiting line of 15-20 people (not a place to try if you are in a rush) getting morning coffee and sandwich. My kids really liked this place and we ate here a few times -...More
