A feast for the senses

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

This is our best food store ever. Whenever we come to NYC we always bring a cooler to stock up with goodies from Zabar's We live in CT and wish we had a store like this nearby. 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!!!

I can't begin to really describe it you really have to experience it . I go the for the fresh baked pastries and they have the best selection of gourmet cheese that I... More

Loved the store, had wonderful foods at fair price. Ate in deli, and was unclean. Found hair on my plate. Wound up with stomachache after eating here, so beware. Maybe get the food from the grocery part and make yourself at home!

My husband and I have been shopping at Zabar's for more than 30 years. Although I live in CT, I still go to Zabar's about a dozen times a year or more. There have been periods of my life when we visited weekly. We have had our coffee, delicious Kona, delivered fresh from Zabar's for years and years. Zabars is... More

You might look at all of these reviews and ask "What's the deal? It's just a grocery store". That's technically true. Zabar's is a just a grocery store like New York is just a city. You will find (at affordable prices) a wide assortment of cheeses, meats, prepared foods, coffee, tea, spices, chocolate, and baked goods here. These are perfect... More
