    Seriously there is always a line. But the bagels are soft and warm, so worth a couple minutes of waiting

    Don't be an asshat and claim a table for 6 when there is a line out the door and none of your party has ordered yet. You're not special.

    Serious Bagel spot! Lots of options including soy based spreads. Service is excellent. Real espresso machine and if you have an open mind - read the suggestions posted all over the front counter.

    Recommendation for anyone with a sweet tooth: cinnamon raisin bagel w/ raisin walnut schmear.

    The bagel sandwiches are not worth the wait. Just buy bagels and cream cheese and walk out! Oh, and they have the grumpiest staff ever.

    Bagels are delicious but the line is always SO LONG, so be prepared to wait about an hour.

    Olive cream cheese. They give too much cream cheese for me, consider asking for a smaller amount.

    Unlike their 21st St/1st Av location, when you get to the front of the main line, they will not tell you what their hottest bagels are. To do so, you must first go to where their bagel window is.

    Can't get over the hot everything bagel with chicken salad. Surprisingly good combination... maybe the best bagel or sandwich I've ever had for lunch in my life.

    Want a killer bagel without waiting in line for 20 min? Walk to the back and go to the 'bagel only' line, then schmear at home. And they're only a dollar! #whoa

    So annoying that their bagels taste so good. Need to be ok with waiting in slow, inefficient lines on weekends though. And waiting again in another line to pay. It helps to tag team.

    If you are just getting a bagel (nothing on it, not toasted) you can skip the line and go right to the counter with the bagels.

    Ordering line starts at the back of the store so you can make your way up to the front cash register.

    I found myself in midtown and decided to go 10 blocks and an avenue out of my way for a bagel here. I wasn't disappointed.

    You can skip the line if you are just ordering plain bagels - head to the back to order

    They're even slower on the draw at 7am. Be first, skip the line and order your bagel AND topping at the back.
