From the moment I walked in I felt like I was in Heaven. The delicious smell of the olives hits you as soon as you enter the store. I could have spent several hours there. Unfortunately I had only one to spare. They have every kind of food know to man. Next time I will make sure that I have... More

Came to Zabar's cafe after seeing it recommended in a guide book. My boyfriend and I both had a huge slice of pizza with drink and shared a black and white cookie. It was really good food and everything came to $10! The Zabar's shop looked very good f you need to buy food to take home.

There's Zabar's! And then there's Zabar's! This Upper West Side food emporium is not like any other anywhere. I recently took a friend from Virginia there and we spent 2 hours moving about this relatively small, but exquisite food store featuring bagels, lox, sturgeon, whitefish, and every kind of smoked fish imaginable. There is an amazing selection of ordinary, yet... More

Visited on a very cold morning and had the salmon bagels with coffee and juice, very busy, lots of locals of all ages. My boyfriend loved the bagel so much he ordered a second! We then visited the store which was lovely and picked up some souvenirs. I would highly recommend this place x

A great shop for foodies. I love their freshly roasted coffee beans. My husband loves the great selection of cheeses. There is always something to sample.

We were fortunate enough to be staying 2 blocks away from Zabar's on a recent visit to NYC, and it quickly became our daily stop off for breakfast and coffee in the morning, and our supper in the evening. There is so much choice here you would be hard pushed not to find anything, everything is made fresh daily on... More

Love everything in this store, cheeses, olives, seafood, prepared food, baked goods,etc. I have to put myself on a time limit as I... More

Zabar's has been expanding since it's early days in the 1930's. They are on the same corner at Broadway and W. 80th St. Why cook when you can take out the delicious food from Zabar's. Although the food is not kosher it presents a New York style food which includes wonderful smoked fishes. If you want a local flavor just... More

Zabar's is well worth the trip to 80th street!!! The grocery is amazing with a COMPLETE cheese shop. The pastries are wonderful (try the crumb cake!!). Upstairs is a VERY crowded kitchen store that is worth getting lost in for as long as you can!!!

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
