It's like eating a small, delicious Jewish child.

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.

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.

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 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
