Very good deli. Freshly baked bagels and bialys and pastries. Homemade soup is good, especially split pea. Can dine in or take out. Good lox platter. Nice trays made to order and cookies for special occasions.

The cooks/waitresses are incredibly friendly and seem to know most regulars by name. Accommodating as possible to special dietary requests. Everything prepared fresh daily.

I have been coming here for years. This family owned restaurant does not receive the attention it deserves. The staff always gets my order right and Harold and his wife always have a smile on their face. If you dont know what to order, just go for a sesame bagel with chive, toasted. You can never go wrong with that.... More

This was a very friendly, hometown feel restaurant. The food selection for breakfast was great! The ladies at the counter were super friendly and smiley. I had a cinnamon bagel with cream cheese and my husband had the egg and bacon sandwich with hash browns. Everything was delicious!

Usually there 3-4times per week for lunch and once on weekends. Corn Beef is the best I've ever had. Try the brisket but get there early as it will be gone.

Whatever the nosh in need, this is the place. Great Nova Lox, herring, bagels, bialys, and corned beef. OY, and we always nab a pound of fatty hot corned beef to snack on during the drive home. It never survives the trip. Also, their chocolate crock coffee cake is to die for.

Thank William H
