Not 'Posh', just good

The shop was a few minutes away from where I staying and didn't even notice it the first time round. it is quite small inside with a dining area but a great choice of bagels and fillings. I asked for a weird combination, not on their list, and had to ask a few times before it was understood... read more

Got two great wraps for takeaway. Deeply filled, fresh , tasty and juicy ! Over $15 for the two - but worth it- not over priced for that area. Would definitely recommend ! Bagels looked good too. Would give them a try .

I liked the location of this restaurant. I did not like the prices and there was nothing special about the flavor of the cream cheese. I would not eat there again.

Went on a Saturday morning, so many people came and went in a short amount of time. HUGE menu, more options than you could possibly imagine. Also sells their spreads in containers.

Like your local New York style deli, run by Asian folks. Not too much conversation -- just snappy bagel with a shmear or sandwich to go.

Whichever Posh Bagel you choose, you can't go wrong. We enjoyed a baker's dozen of mixed bagels including cream cheeses and were not disappointed! Easy access to cable car line.

Oh no, I am from Boston and I did not realize that there is such a thing as a "Cronut" and I did not get one! I got tuna salad on a bagel and it was decent. They are located near Union Square and they had lots of varieties of bagels. Looks like a neighborhood staple and definitely better than... More

The restaurant itself is fairly dark and could probably use a good scrub down, but it's a good place for a quick bite if shopping in the area or need a drink. In terms of food quality, it's what one would expect out of a chain-bagel spot. It's good, but nothing that you should go out of your way for.... More
