We were staying next door at the Park South and they recommended Bagels & Schmear. We loved it! The folks there are so courteous and friendly and the food is delicious. I woke up at 6 am every morning to get coffee and breakfast.

This is a “must stop” place each time I’m in NYC. The breakfast bagel sandwiches are awesome and we bought muffins to eat the next day and they were still super fresh. They’re always busy but the orders are always fast and accurate. Prices are...excellent too. The staff is always so friendly and welcoming.More

All I can say is WOW. By far our favourite place for breakfast place for our entire trip to New York. The bagel itself are so fresh and do a huge variety of options to choose from. Our favourite was a breakfast bagel (Bacon/Ham Egg...and Cheese) they are to die for. Not only are the bagel options amazing but the sweet treats too! Highly recommend both the chocolate brownies and the large chocolate cookie's both some of the best I’ve ever tasted and so fresh. There was a line most of the time but they get through it very quick so not a long wait at all and glad they’re doing so well! Sad I can’t take this place home with me but will hopefully be back for more soon!More

I LOVE the bagels/breakfast sandwiches here; always fresh and tasty! Even more impressive is the staff- they are friendly/funny/kind and work vigorously to keep the line moving. Highly recommend a visit and don’t forget to tip the staff well if you appreciate their stellar service!

We were wondering why there are always so many people queuing up there so we had to try it out. They have amazing food and I loved my tuna spread bagle, must try.

This place was so crazy busy and we had no idea where to order or pick up because there were so many people just standing and waiting for their orders. Thank goodness for some very friendly locals who explained everything to us 😊 We ordered...the breakfast sandwich’s and of course bagels with cream cheese schemear and it was all so yummy! It took us a good amount of time to order and then wait for our order so give yourself plenty of time I promise you will not be disappointed!More

This became my wife and I’d go-to breakfast spot while we were in NYC for our 2nd anniversary. Loud, packed, a little hectic, but so New York that we loved the experience, and the food was excellent too! We tried four different bagel breakfast sandwiches...over our time in the city—the house special on an everything bagel was my wife’s favorite and the pastrami, egg, and cheese on a plain bagel was my favorite. The crumb cake was also superb—so buttery! The only reason I went with 4 stars is because the menu is pretty confusing to look at—fortunately, the employees were helpful and explained things to us, because we definitely looked like confused tourists.More
