Black Seeds Bagels are scattered around New York. Their bagels are delicious, the smoked salmon w cream cheese, capers and onions was my favourite!

Black Seed Bagels are fantastic. I loved my breakfast sandwich but was disappointed they had run out of turkey (must be popular).

Absolutely love the concept: Honey boiled wood fired bagels. However the execution did not live up to the expectation. Bagels were good but a bit dense.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way out of town. The coffee and bagels were okay, not great, but the price was up there. We spent $25 for two plain coffees and two bagels. One had bacon-jalapeno cream cheese and the other had smoked...More

Heard good things about Black Seed and was curious to try it. We were wandering around the city and all of a sudden, there it was. Interesting menu on the chalkboard and had to take a minute to take it all in. Bagel is crunchy...More

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
