Foursquare Tips

  • It's like eating a small, delicious Jewish child.
  • Best bagels in the City in my humble opinion
  • Jew tip: Don't get the white fish sandwich, get a bagel with cream cheese and 1/4 lb. white fish on the side. $2.00 less, with more fish!
  • if you are just getting bagels (just bagels), avoid the crazy line and go straight to where the bagels are and buy them there.
  • They don't toast.
  • great but almost too much cream cheese. was falling off. good stuff though
  • The best bagels in New York. I'm an "everything with scallion cream cheese" kind of guy myself, but that's pure breath hubris. Just don't ask for it toasted, you noob.
  • Get the everything bagel here. You'll never eat anything else.
  • It's all about the spreads here. Try a fresh batch of the Raisin Walnut cream cheese with Lox.
  • Bagels are coming out so hot and fresh you don't need to toast the bagel! Well, they wouldn't toast if for you anyway :p
  • I wait patiently/ on long lines for great bagels/ totally worth it.
  • I pass 15+ bagel places en route to this spot, but it's totally worth it. Weekend mornings, expect it to take 10 mins or so.
  • Good stuff but God help you if you are not ready or have questions. No bagels for you!
  • If you come later in the morning, be sure to ask which bagels are still warm. 9 grain w raisin cream cheese = to die for
  • eggs aren't their best. lox are solid though.
  • Smaller operation than the 51st / 3rd Ave location, but the bagels are just as perfect. Ask for what's warm, ask for 'em scooped, but don't ask for a toast.
  • Try the hand cut smoked salmon on scooped out pumpernickel with lettuce, tomato and shrimp salad.
  • Whole wheat everything with light scallion... Always a winner
  • Best bagels in nyc and outside of Florida hands down
  • They don't toast their bagels.
