Be prepared to wait...easily twenty minutes if 1) there's a long enough line and 2) if the people in front of you order bagels like they order coffee at Starbucks.
Be prepared to not regret it. With a wide variety of bagels from which to choose and a million ingredients to fill them, you'll need a statistician to calculate the combinations.
Though the interior is quite small for the large following, just take it to go and enjoy your treasure at your (other) destination. There are stools inside, but this is New York: no one's rushing through their breakfast so you can get nice and comfy. I had the bagel and lox--holey moley, these people know what they're doing! So much flavor! So much food!
The service isn't the speediest, but remember the whole thing about not regretting it?

Whilst the language skills of the staff are not the best the food was good. Popped in for breakfast and asked for a bacon bagel. It seemed that was not on a set list and so I had to go with a bacon, egg, etc What do I care it was great and substantial. In fact I could have eaten just half of one a felt ready for a day of sightseeing. Perhaps share one with a friend?

We went on a Sunday mid-morning and there was a queue but it moved quickly. Takeaway service (very small counter to sit at but the place was really busy) - we ate around the corner in the square. In hindsight we should have ordered a simple toasted bagel with cream cheese. What we ordered was huge and way too much for us. Roast beef with coleslaw; chicken with salad and lox with cream cheese. The bagels were fresh but really chewy so can't really comment as am guessing toasted would have been better. Staff were quick and efficient.

We found this off the beaten path bagel shop thru our Google App. Wow! what a selection and these are the best I've had ever. This shop is right in the heart of the financial district in NYC. We loved their bagels so much that we went back the next day as well!!
