Foursquare Tips

  • Recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.
  • Take your hot bagel & schmear around the corner to the cafe tables in Greenacre Park & score a free cup of coffee at Jack's with first check-in. Enjoy the waterfall! 217 E 51st St
  • Don't be that jerk that sits down before you have a bagel. You ruin it for everyone. Think about it.
  • Want to delve into a traditional NY bagel? The fluffy bagels at this Midtown East establishment are not only delicious, but very cheap. Get it with some cream cheese and lox for the classic sandwich.
  • Great bagels but horrible customer service at the register.
  • If you want bagels only, go around the line, straight to the bagel bins, and order there.
  • Is it me or is that guy Richard the most miserable crumudgeon you've ever seen? Holy shit.
  • Some people need to relax and realize that for a good New York bagel, there is going to be a line during peak-hours. Hands down, the best bagel in Manhattan, especially whole-wheat everything bagels.
  • Skip the line and buy the hot bagels and get the cream cheese on the side. Its quicker!
  • Their bagels are one of the best! Classic lox and cream cheese is still box office hit. Come early if u don't wanna be in a long standing queue
  • Get your bagels here, but your coffee somewhere else. Their stuff is undrinkable.
  • Some claim Ess-A-Bagel's offerings are too big. We beg to differ, and will continue to indulge in a crispy, colossal everything bagel loaded with scallion cream cheese, lox and tomato.
  • Try an Ashkenazi delicacy, such as chopped liver.
  • Best Bagels in NYC - old school. Try the scotia with cream cheese on everything.
  • If you can ignore the slow service, interesting hiring practices, and the employee in the back screaming out orders, then you can have yourself a pretty decent bagel. Skip the coffee. Go to Orens.
  • Yum yum yum!!! BAGELS!
  • Best lox & bagel I have ever tasted!
  • Great NY bagel shop, there's a huge queue for a reason. But it's worth it!
  • The everything bagel is the best bagel in NYC, making our list of "The Tastes That Make the City: NYC Edition."
  • bagel with smoked salmon (or lox) & scallion cream cheese everything bageland lox is yummy too! good cream cheese selection, love it!!
