Bagels & Schmear was right beside my hotel. This was my first time in NYC and I was seeking a legit New York bagel experience. I was certainly excited to see that the place next door was in the top #100 out of 10k+ restaurants....More

Authentic NY bagels - long lines, but the staff moves you through quickly. Wall counter seats are fine for eating the wonderful bagels. Location is great as well

The bagels and toppings were very good. They also have a really good breakfast menu. But there is no room for a lot a people. We had to have breakfast standing.

Came here for the first time, ordered a dozen bagels (which were fresh and still hot) a few muffins and a bagel sandwich with lox spread and tomato, and a cup of iced hazelnut coffee. Absolutely amazing!!!
