Originally born and bred in Brooklyn, I can never remember a time when Zabars wasn't part of our lives. Living in upstate NY for almost 50 years, I keep in touch online and every time I am in the City.

Service — Quick and friendly. Rushed... but the atmosphere demanded it! Food — Coffee and a bagel. Cappuccino and a pastry. Everything was good or better. Value — Prices were moderate; especially when considering location. Atmosphere — Informal and comfortable for a quick bite. Not a place to 'hang out.'

Every trip to NYC I visit Zabars. I love the market and the kitchen ware upstairs. You can grab a bagel and salmon or a egg custard! Dont miss this place.

Zabar's has everything you could possibly want to eat. 000's of cheese varieties, salads, smoked and fresh fish, lots of artisan breads tro die for, baked on site. A least a dozen different types of cavier, not bought any - yet! We always buy too much and then walk across to Central Park and have a picnic and people watch.... More

They just sling our a lot of really tasty food at what is by New York City standards a good price. They are a classic and deserve to be so.

Truly authentic New York style food ! LOTS of history here - wanna feel like a New Yorker then check out Zabar's ! Their sandwiches and paninis are awesome and try their Mahtzo ball soup.

If you want a totally unique New York experience, get yourself to Zabars deli on the Upper West; a local Jewish neighbourhood deli, jam packed with freshly baked strudels, bagels, special blend coffee, cheeses, olives......you name it.

Zabar's has been a top place to purchase food in NY for decades. A visit to the city should include a walk on Broadway from Fairway at 74th, to Citarella next door at 75th to Zabar's at 80th. However, Zabar's is resting on its laurels and has grown lazy. You must check the fresh-date stamps in the diary as some... More
