    Our weekend game plan: Get there as early as we can, buy one egg omelette, one with fresh fish, a couple plain bagels for later in the day, and then get home before the queue forms around ten.

    Great bagels! The bialy is a bagel that's cooked differently than the others. Wikipedia steered me wrongly into thinking it would have stuff in the middle. Get it with spread with some flavor!

    Keep this on the down low, but rumor has it Leo's is serving the same delicious bagels as the ever popular Murray's bagels. They even have the same specials listed. Shh...

    My go-to breakfast spot in fidi. Solid bagels. Impressive lox selection. My favorite is the Shimmy. Whitefish salad and lox on a bagel = heavenly ❤️

    Everything bagel with scallion cream cheese / bacon, egg & cheese on an everything bagel are my go-to choices. Worth the long wait on the weekends. Coffee, on the other hand, is mediocre at best.

    Possibly the best bagels in New York, so that's saying a lot. Whitefish salad on an everything bagel totally rocks.

    One of my favorite places for a bagel. It's tiny inside, but the options are great! Staff can be... Ugh, "snippy"... At times. But a fresh bagel makes up for it.

    I had a turkey and bacon bagel. So so good. Will definitely return and work my way through menu, but have to agree with other comments - the coffee is truly awful and service doesn't come with a smile

    I'm obsessed with finding the best sausage, egg, and cheese on toasted everything. This one is pretty damn good. Bagels are fresh and soft. Add avocado.

    It is okay to get the tofu spread (scallions, too?) once in a while instead of the real big cream cheese. I used to eat the Orchard Street sandwich consistently, but I switched to just lox only. Alas

    Bagels are great. Egg sandwiches-not so much. They fry the egg like an omelette rather than break the yolk in pan, & it comes out kind of hockey pucky. They don't melt cheese either. Just get a bagel.
