  • Rocco DiSpirito wants it all at Tal Bagels in New York, NY, on Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate, where his favorite is the Everything Bagel. Find more tips at Food Network Local.
  • Fantastic lox
  • Go with the yogurt chocolate chocolate chip muffin. Absolutely amazing!
  • Very, very good bagels. Usually no line (unlike ess-a bagel), but still the same quality. Open today on Christmas too!
  • Great bagels!
  • Lox is extremely fresh. A bagel with lox & a few toppings is about $10.50, but they take credit card for purchases over $10.
  • Migrating excessively out of your way on a Sunday morning for a Tal's bagel is well worth it.
  • Best bagels in NYC!
  • Variety. Tasty.
  • Great for a quick toasted bagel w/ eggs and toppings. Not my favorite bagel on its own. MR: 7.4
  • Beware of the $10 minimum. The manager won't budge on it.
  • No bacon or eggs here
  • Skip Ess-a-Bagel lines and come here.
  • Bagels are not as good as essa but definitely worth going if you don't want to wait in that line
  • Toasted everything with scallion cream cheese or butter or buy the chocolate babka.
  • They toasted my bagel when I didn't ask for it. Fresh bagels don't need toasting.
  • Great bagels....always.
  • Get a bagel with cream cheese, smoked salmon, tomato and onion. Don't forget to wash it down with an iced coffee.
  • Delicious! A million different cream cheese flavours and space to sit down.
  • Their cream cheese IS pasteurized. The behind the counter told me *it's just Philadelphia Cream Cheese* :0/
