Favorite bagel while in NYC. The breakfast special (bacon, egg, cheese bagel) was only $3.50 and was super yummy. The coffee was also really good. It's a small place without a lot of seating. We happened to find a bench outdoors nearby. I'd definitely go back next time I'm in NYC.

I was walking in the area and since I read excellent reviews about this place, I decided to stop for a quick lunch. It is a no frills place - you won't give it a try if you just stop and look at the entrance door but once you are in you will quickly change your mind. You will find a great variety of freshly baked bagels and plenty of toppings alike - from many different kinds of meat to lots of different cream cheeses. The place is popular with locals and you might have to queu but the service is very quick. There are also few tables where you can sit and eat your big, delicious bagel. If you are in the area, it is definitely worth stopping here.

Great variety of bagels and cream cheese! Long line moved very fast and people were friendly. Easy walk to Central Park West.

Very good, but salmon and cheese bagels cost 8.50, too much even if delicious. Place is very small and you want't like that much to stay in to eat
