Went to Zucker's twice during a recent trip to NYC.

First, during high-traffic lunch hour on a Thursday. Long line, but staff was still patient with me as newbie reading the board and trying to figure out what I wanted. Finally ordered tuna on pumpernickel bagel with provolone cheese and lettuce. Also ordered a toasted cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese, and a small chai latte.Total was around $14.

Second visit was Saturday around 12noon. Order/pick-up/pay set-up was different, but again staff was patient as we figured that out. Very un-crowded on Saturday afternoon. I ordered smoked turkey sandwich with muenster and lettuce. Meat was piled on -- wish I could say the same for cheese (2 slices) and lettuce (1 leaf). Also ordered dry, untoasted cinnamon raisin bagel -- huge.

My wife and I had breakfast (coffee, bagels, lox, and cream cheese - what else?) at Zucker's on two mornings during a recent visit to the city. We thoroughly enjoyed both meals. The staff was efficient and friendly and the restaurant clean. There's free WIFI too. We'll go back the next time we're in New York.

If you love fresh handmade bagels and piles of pastrami or brisket you have got to eat here. Come hungry, you'll need to be as the fillings are epic. Also managed a fairly decent cup of tea too!

Really liked this place. Ambiance is unique & classic. Bagels are delicious. The "breakfast special" ($2.75, I believe, for a bagel & cream cheese, and coffee) is a bargain. All around great spot for breakfast.
