Had a breakfast bagel (bacon, egg, American cheese on everything bagel) on our first morning in NYC last week. Never had anything like it. Then had one every morning we were there. An absolute must when in The Big Apple!

Yes there was a line on a random Thursday around 9 am but it moved quickly. Got an Everything bagel with garlic cream cheese! Perfect start to a full day of walking the streets of NYC on a chilly day in November! Very filling and...hearty start to my day at only $5.25!More

Wow these bagels are amazing! By far the best thing I ate in New York! I had the Ruben on poppy seed bagel and it was delicious! If I could I would have gone back for more but we didn’t have time! You must try!!

Bagels are amazing! So many options. Suggest review the menu in advance so you have an idea of what to order. Baked and toasted to perfection

I was staying only a block away and would eat breakfast every morning here. They serve anything you want on a bagel. Be prepared as there could be a very long line to get your order placed. If you are staying at a nearby hotel,...or are planning on visiting, i would highly suggest ordering online ON THEIR WEBSITE (not doordash) and you simply walk in and grab your order. I saved about 20-25 minutes of standing in line by doing this. You can customize your order anyway you want. I ordered a few bagels to bring back home with me. There are a lot of different cream cheeses and bagels to choose from, so the options are endless. If you prefer breakfast sandwiches,or lunch sandwiches, they have those too!!More

These are awesome bagels (although I prefer Liberty Bagels across the street) but the experience of obtaining said bagel was a downer. Placing the order and paying was fast enough but I waited at least 15 minutes for my order (which was a plain bagel...not toasted - nothing). The place was mobbed, it was about 10:30am. When I ordered I asked what was hot and he said everything but by the time I got my bagel it was not hot and had already started getting that "not fresh out of the oven" feel. But I still give this place 5 stars because the bagels are huge and they have the right texture - oh and they taste good too.More

These were the best bagels we had on our visit to NYC. The bagels are huge and will keep you full up for hours! The BLT is absolutely divine and so is the bacon, egg and cheese bagel.

This is the only place that we visit almost every time we visit NYC. We’ve tried other bagels and they are good. But this is our favorite. Great bagels, whether you get a shmear or a sandwich and just chewy enough. This time got the...Power Breakfast Sandwich on whole wheat Once again it didn’t fail. And we always take ours to Herald Square and sit in the park which is about 2 blocks away.More

Truly the best bagel in the world, not sure about the coffee though. Very busy but orders are ready in a flash. Second visit first one was over a year ago. Dining-in is not a special experience since you’re right were the lineup is, but...their sandwiches are exquisite. Short visit to NYC but leave without passing by for my favorite smoked salmon all grain bagel sandwich and my half dozen bagel takeaway “Highly recommended”More

Nice selection of Bagels and spread, and they are good. Dont like the line but i guess it mean that they are really good. If you dont like the line there is a bagel store just across from them with no line, but trust me...you lll regret it. It is really worth standing 20 mins or more in the lineMore

The Egg, Bacon and cheese bagel was one of the best I have ever tasted. It was less dry than Liberty bagels, which meant that we were far more satisfied by the food. A must have for breakfast when you’re in the city and local...to Times Square.More

Excellent cream cheese and salmon on an onion bagel. I haven't been here for about four years and it was better than I remembered. I came at 6:05am on a Friday, quiet and no queue. Got my order to go in less than 5 minutes.
