Brisk service, but what else do you expect from Wall Street?!

Great bagels and huge range to chose from. I'm a Brit so the bagel is a relatively unknown quantity to me, but from what I can gather these are excellent bagels and the range of different bagels is pretty extensive! My sister lives round the corner and says they're among the best she's had while... read more

There are a wide range of fresh bagels with an even wider range of fillings. The staff are friendly and attentive. There is room to sit down in the window for about 5 people, bar stool style. Only go for a toasted bagel if you are having them with plain butter on them or if you prefer them that way... More

The bagels and coffee are very fresh in the morning (they serve Gimme coffee). Nice assortment of tofu spreads and smoked fish (my preferred toppings). Don't let them toast your fresh bagel (they always ask). Service is usually quite fast and cheerful, although the cashier is occasionally grouchy. Definitely the best place to get a bagel in the neighborhood.

We stopped by here to grab a bagel. Lox choices were excellent varied and I had a hard time choosing but the result was good. The bagels were good and fresh BUT not the best NY bagels. Not as chewy as NY bagels should be. Decent and good though. Spouse recommends H&H uptown for the best though.

This place had the bagels that you expect when you visit NYC. There was nice park around the corner that we sat and ate.

My partner and I visited here after the 9/11 memorial as its only a 5 min walk away. There is a huge selection so if you're not sure what to have as the friendly staff. We had an 'everything bagel' which means it's got all the grains in the bread, my husband had the Leo classic (crispy bacon, Turkey, tomato)... More

While our hotel supplied a complimentary breakfast, my fresh, hot NYC bagel craving took over and we went to Leo's. It's a tiny place (only 4 stools to sit on overlooking the front window/street) so mostly it's a takeout place. Busy for a Sunday morning so I can imagine what kind of business it does during the week! Well staffed... More

Fancy being a New Yorker? What you need is a bagel to start your day! and there is nowhere better than this place. If you can put up with the queues that go around the store and out the door, even when it is raining, then you will certainly be happy. I would recommend the two eggs and canadian bacon,... More

You heard that review title correctly. These bagels are the best. They're on the expensive side, but they're worth it. They make all the pastries in-house, have an intimidatingly spectacular selection of meats to top your bagel, and again, these are the best bagels I've ever had. I take every visiting friend and relative here, and go here at least... More

Pretty good bagel overall. The pumpernickel was just chewy enough and the salmon tasty. Just tell the staff to hold half of the usual onion amount if you don't want to end up feeling the onion flavour as it enters your blood stream. The tomato could have been riper/better. The bialys are very good - probably the best choice for... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
