The marble bread is fantastic. Bagels are good and fresh tasting, just not the best NY bagels. It was definitely busy in the morning and the cream cheese is yummy.

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!!!

Service was incredibly fast, staff is pleasant and polite. It was too crowded to get a seat inside though since it's a small place. But it didn't bother us, we got coffee around the corner and sat and ate there. Lot of delicious pastries and goodies to tempt you as you wait in line too. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a tasty and generously sized bagel for a fair price

It was so busy for breakfast that it felt like a n episode of Seinfeld where you need to know your order and get in through the line. But it was fast service and the wraps were good to get you on the go fast.

The place is a Tight squeeze so --- best not to go on a cold rainy day with big coats and umbrellas and the team of south american speedy fixers and maker chefs are really in a hurry to make up your bagel so boy - you had better be on top of your order but once you know what you want - and it may be a case of trial and error as some of the mixes are not so great - stick to the traditionals and yum yum - super yummy! in your tummy!! New York prices but a cheap meal comparitively.
