    I grew up around the corner from here. Huge selection of bagels and cream cheese - the perfect place to get a quick breakfast in the morning. There's usually a line but it moves quickly.

    Honestly, really disappointed. Wholewheat everything bagels were hard and chewy, lox was thin and a little flavourless and everything needed seasoning. Plenty of better options elsewhere!

    Not my favorite bagel place on the UWS but their cream cheeses all have a lot of great flavor!

    Egg and pastrami on an onion bagel. Best decision you'll make today.

    It's a good neighborhood bagel shop. Often have deals for a dozen bagels, if you're so inclined.

    Great bagels - very rude, intense staff - and no toaster, which is their pretentious choice to "not ruin their perfect bagels"

    I could see how these bagels would make for decent sandwiches but for just cream cheese and tomato they fall short...not enough dough or bite.

    Delish bagels, but get them for take-away, coffee is very ordinary.

    Really good bagel, and wide array of cream cheeses, but the fact that they don't toast bagels is annoying.

    A mainstay on the Upper West Side and a true neighborhood spot, go for a bagel w/ smoked salmon, capers, red onions, tomatoes and plain cream cheese.

    Don't ask for your bagel to be toasted! They refuse to do it. Solid bagel spot on the UWS otherwise.

    They use coffee ice cubes in their iced coffee. Nice touch.

    Go for the nova special. Delicious fish + fresh squeezed orange juice and a coffee = YUM.

    Since H&H's demise, this has been our go-to spot for excellent bagels. We particularly love their bagel sandwiches - bacon, egg, and cheese, yum!

    recently renovations took away the grimy charm and they no longer are willing to toast your bagel but it is still the best place in the neighborhood to get a morning bagel

    Best bagels now that H&H is closed. Get a toasted bagel with lettuce, tomato, and cream cheese.

    Best bagels in my hood. Nothing exciting in the coffee department but a few wobbly formica tables with stuffing sprung chair give the place a grimy charm.

    bagels rival those of H+H. Yes, it looks a little sketchy, but never disappointed!
