There's more to our bagels than a crispy outside, a fresh, chewy inside and a tasty, tangy schmear. And no, we're not just talking about a smooth slice of Nova (although we only serve the freshest available)... ... we are talking about SOUL.

    Whole wheat? Tofu? What are you, meshuggah? Get a nice lox with a schmear, maybe, on a nice regular bagel? Don't be a schmuck and ask them to toast it... Eat, eat! You're all skin and bones!

    Bagels and New York, is there a better pair!? Have a bagel with lox at New York’s best bagel shop.

    Don't ask to toast. You will be denied and regulars will snicker.

    Sugarfree in the cold cooler. On a balmy day, try it mixed with coco water + a health bagel.

    ... ask for the whole wheat everything bagel -- it's made with whole wheat flour so it's good and good-for-you ...

    Ken Glass · December 26, 2010
  • Natalia P.

    Best bagels in NYC. Line gets long on weekends but worth the wait.

    Natalia Pudzisz · October 23, 2010

    If you can do without coffee, the fresh squeezed OJ (typically on ice by the register) is fantastic.

    Jalapeno cream cheese oh yes.

    Don't you dare ask them to toast your bagel.

    A solid bagel shop for the Chelsea area, despite their refusal to toast their bagels.

    Serious Eats · September 23, 2013
  • Damien B.

    The best bagels in NYC live here. They don't toast so don't even think about asking. Weekend lines are long but it's worth the wait.

    Whole wheat everything with low fat scallion and tomato. A del Cohen staple.

    Aaron Cohen · March 13, 2010
  • Albert W.

    Don't ask for toasted. They don't do it and you will appear like a tourist.

    Albert Wenger · September 15, 2013

    This is sausage egg and cheese on a bagel and its awesome. That is all

    Samantha Mushnick · July 16, 2013

    This is the slowest establishment in the city of New York.

    The best bagel since I have got. .

    Delicious bagels. Wear North Face to fit in with everyone else.

    James J · December 4, 2011
  • Dinah F.

    Make sure to get here before 2 on the weekend or you'll miss the eggs on bagels!

    Dinah Fay · September 18, 2011
  • David S.

    Apparently asking for your bagels to be toasted is insulting. Lox and cream cheese is amazing, but be prepared to spend $12 on bagels and a coffee.

    David Simon · March 27, 2011
  • Samantha B.

    The line can be long but it moves pretty quick & is worth it

    Whole wheat everything is the way to go...

    The place to go for lovers of the crunchy bagel. No soft, doughy business over here. And they don't toast.

    Mike H · March 30, 2013
  • Darls

    I don't get why it's insulting to ask for a toasted bagel here. My bagel was not warm and fresh like he told me it would be and they have disgusting iced chai which they made me wait 10 min for.

    Amazing food, lousy service. Accept it, relish it, enjoy it.

    Scott · July 17, 2012

    Whole wheat everything with scallion cream cheese. Worth the wait every time.

    Lesley Forrester · December 19, 2011

    health bagel + strawberry cream cheese = happiness!

    Sarah Sweeney · August 22, 2011

    Go for a BLT on a bagel... a lot of bacon and no shredded lettuce

    The Health Bagel is the only bagel.

    Brooklyn bagel is a block north and sooo much better. This place is incredibly overrated.

    They don't toast them, so ask them which ones are hot and then get busy!

    Gus Waite · December 27, 2011

    get there early and maaaybe they'll have deviled eggs left!

    Margaux R · December 16, 2011

    Hope you don't want your bagel toasted. They don't believe in that here.

    The Health bagel is very good

    OMG, lentil soup! And I'm usually not a lentil fan!

    Avoid a line by going earlier on weekends. 12 pm huge line!!

    Killer breakfast special. $2.95 for awesome bagel w/ Cream Cheese / butter & small coffee

    Satisfying burn on the jalapeño cream cheese. Always have mine on a whole wheat everything.

    Anthony Iaffaldano · May 3, 2011

    Haven't tried the smoked salmon yet, but for a couple bucks, you can't really go wrong with an everything bagel and cream cheese. Just don't ask for it toasted.

    David Taintor · November 19, 2010

    Great Nova bagel.

    M Cubano · July 30, 2010

    Tradition bagel is their best seller...and for good reason! Recommended.

    Travis Deptola · July 21, 2010
  • Doug R.

    The lunch specials -- sandwich and soda -- are a deal at $5.99, and Wednesday's grilled chicken sandwich is especially delicious...

    Doug Rule · May 19, 2010

    ask for the bagel to be warmed up
