Bagels are good, but the breakfast platter and sandwhiches we ordered were below average. Left egg, potatos and bacon nearly untouched. Clearly better places nearby. In particular if you walk Columbus avenue downwards.

Just a block from Central Park...we sat right by the front window and had one of our best NYC lunches. Very friendly service and great sandwiches.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
