We are visiting our daughter at her new place in NYC -- how lucky for us to be able to walk a block and have authentic and delicious New York Bagels. Service with a smile, and quick too! Been back 3 times, highly recommended

Stopped here for a quick lunch while visiting my friend who works in the financial district. Such good bagels and so many options! Great location, too.

We stopped in here because the day prior the line was outside the door, that's usually a good sign! There were so many delicious options for cream cheese spreads. I opted for an everything bagel with jalapeno cream cheese, and we also ordered a lox sandwich. The server was new and had to ask us what went on the sandwich,... More

Leo's had good rating, but the experience we got did not coincide. The staff was not service minded. We got much meat on the bagels, but they did not add any of their great variety of cream cheese or any vegetables. Leo's had the raw material, but not the attitude.

Tried Leo's as it was in the area where we were staying. Although the bagels were good, not great, the staff is unorganized and the cashier needs to work on her people skills. They have several people working but don't have a system. It's only bagels, so not a big deal. I'd go back if I was in the area... More

The first time I discovered Leo's was by pure luck. We saw a line of people around the corner, so we randomly lined up, just to see what the fuss was about. This changed my life! I never knew bagels could be so tasty and chewy and fresh! The second time I went back recently, I was better prepared, and... More

Great selection of flavoured bagels and even bigger selection of fillings! Maybe too much. They seem to talk a different language and thought I was pretty clear and precise with what I ordered albeit with a bit of a cockney accent. The bloke just stood there, clearly not sure what I said. I repeated myself, he mumbled something and I... More

The bagels are amazing , so much choice which we did find hard to decide , never had so much choice. Found the staff a little bit on the rude side , but guess they run a efficient business and found four British people a little annoying with choosing from a vast menu .

I spent 6 days in New York with my family and once we discovered Leo's, we returned almost daily. Definitely worth hunting out if you are visiting anywhere in the financial district. So much choice (almost too much!!) I would however recommend looking at the menu before you go, otherwise it could be a bit overwhelming. Something there for everyone,... More

Plenty of bagel options! Has my favorite bagel topping - tofu cream cheese (it's impossible to tell it from dairy cream cheese - how do they make it?!). Good, quick service. Like most NYC bagel shops, there's not really a way to eat inside (three stools by the door), but a great place to grab a bagel to go!
