    Come early. Or better, band forces and order for a group. B/c that line ain't a joke. But, ohh the whole wheat everything with bacon, egg n cheese is worth it.

    Quick service. We found a place to sit and eat our bagels a few blocks away. We had the iced hazelnut coffee and a bacon, egg, and scallion cream cheese on an everything bagel. Yum!

    Best bagels near Penn Station, hands-down. The lines get crazy during peak hours, but the multi-grain and sesame bagels don't disappoint. They actually listen if you ask for light butter or toasting.

    Their name does justice!! Definitely the best bagel I've eaten in NYC. I stumbled across this place after following my nose (they make their bagels fresh on the premises). One word; HEAVEN!

    Real New York bagels. They toast and don't skimp on the cream cheese. The freshly squeezed OJ is awesome. They keep the line moving even on super-crowded mornings.

    You know it's a good place if it's all locals. In this case, it's all young office professionals in their 20s ordering breakfast bagel sandwiches and gossiping about their work/social lives.

    Great bagels! Lots of toppings available, but honestly a hot cinnamon raisin bagel with nothing on it really gives you the flavor of the bagel itself - and it's good.

    Amazing bagels. Don't go close to closing, they close the kitchen early (just bagels and cream cheeses after that). Their cheese spreads are as good as their bagels!

    The bagels are insanely good. The place is rightly named. I've had the California sandwich and a plain bagel with cinnamon raisin walnut cream cheese. Both were stellar.

    Best bagels in NYC, but quite possibly the worst coffee. The owners should change the name. Best Bagels & Worst Coffee!!! Walk outside & hang a left, cross 7th Ave just past the fruit stand is coffee!
