We had breakfast here this morning and I was unimpressed with the Western Omelette.

Eating here is a lot of work. You order in one line, pay in another and pick up your food at yet another place. There is really no place to sit and eat, the silverware is plastic and there is no condiments like catsup for the potatoes or hot sauce for the eggs.

Should we stop in again, I'll limit myself to a sandwich.

Visited for breakfast one morning, amazing choice of bagels and very busy, but they have a very efficient system and you don't have to wait too long, well worth a visit

Freshly baked every day on the premises, their bagels are second to none. Big and packed with you favourite fillings. Nice coffee too and lots of cold drinks. The choice of fillings is amazing and the multigrain bagel was perfect. Do try the Reuben with the onion bagel, it is worth flying in from Europe just for that! Not many tables, but on a nice day you can eat in the nearby park.

In town for World Pride and sought out a "New York bagel shop". A search brought up "Best Bagel and Coffee" (which had great reviews) so decided to check it out even though I know that rarely does a restaurant describing itself as "Best" live up to the name.

Well, "Best Bagel and Coffee" did not disappoint. We arrived to find a line out on the walk about 10 people deep, and the interior was PACKED! An employee was directing entry, as one person left, one was admitted. We were in no hurry and took the crowd as a good sign.

Once inside the staff efficiently took orders at one station, then directed you elsewhere to pay and pickup your order. The process was efficiently executed and we were on our way in about :10. Unfortunately we were not lucky enough to snag an inside table, but headed out to a park to eat.

Bagels were fresh and perfectly chewy. The bagel sandwich ingredients were plentiful, fresh and appealing. To be fair, the coffee is not in fact "the best", but perhaps that is too subjective to truly rate.

Definitely worth the trip/wait, and fully satisfied my expectations of a "New York Bagel.

Lines out the door especially in the morning rush hour but get in the line - it moves quickly. Process is confusing at first as there is a separate line for ordering and then pickup. Delicious and generous breakfast bagel sandwiches. I love the everything bagel with bacon and egg. I want one now.
