    This is absolutely the best bagel place anywhere in the area. My favorite is their poppy seed bagel, perfectly baked with poppy seeds top and bottom. Runner ups - orange/cranberry, sport, everything

    Do not get an egg sandwich... They put some egg mixture in the microwave. If they call themselves "New York style" they should fry the eggs!

    Excellent bagels here, I recommend the bacon, egg, and cheese on an everything bagel.

    They have rushes so the line can be long but there are so many bagel choices and spreads!

    You can't beat these bagels. The pumpernickel stuffed with corned beef is a brunch in a bagel sandwich. Don't be intimidated by the line because there's an army of workers inside.

    Chive cream cheese + whitefish salad on an everything. Not NYC but still delicious.

    Huge serving size! Great value. The "minis" are the size of your average bagel.
