“Great Stop for Great Snacks and More!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We ran into Essen on Mdison Avenue just as we were getting hungry for breakfast.
The place is spotlessly clean and serves a huge selection of breakfast and lunch dishes.
The food all looks great and is fresh and very well prepared.
We took a dish of excellent fresh and warm oatmeal with lots of extras on top, followed by two of the best bagel sandwiches I remember, with cream cheese and lox - Divine!!
The salad bar is fresh and varied and everything else we saw people around us eating looked great.
This is certainly a place we shall return to!! If you are anywhere around, go for it!!!!! You'll love it!!!
