Not the best New York bagels but they were good and fresh

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

Hard to Find but good bagels!!! We wanted a good bagel and walked all around looking for this place and finally turned the corner and walked into it. Streets are weird in this area. Small place but gets crowded because the bagels are good. Nice crispy crust NU bagel. I got jalapeno cream cheese with tomato. Really good. Highly recommend.

The bagels here were tasty and there was a really good selection of fillings available. I found the staff to be quite abrupt but in fairness to them they are incredibly busy and are trying to serve as many customers as possible.

Leo's bagels is easy to overlook. It's a small shop in a back lane that's not obvious if you don't know about it beforehand. What is obvious however is the queue outside of people who know it's well worth the wait. Fortunately the queue moves quickly. Leo's has an array of freshly made bagels and a great selection of fillings... More
