    Beautiful shop and the salmon and cream cheese are delicious, but my bagel was a bit hard

    You can get a better value salmon bagel anywhere, so skip it and definitely get the Super Heebster instead. It really is amazing.

    There's no better place for real Jewish comfort food. As Laurie Anderson says, "The horseradish cream cheese is insanely good." Read more

    It's like stepping into a time warp! Could be 1920, but .... you know otherwise. Pristine smoked fish along with all the proper accompaniments. Truly, "A Blast From The Past". . . .

    Get the Scottish smoked salmon - it has the strongest rich and smoky flavor.

    Flying fish roe wasabi smoked salmon bagel. Do a few of their maracoons for a bite after, too.

    Russ & Daughters's Super Heebster is the stuff of legend, a mammoth $12 masterpiece packed with whitefish and baked salmon salad. The whole thing is held together by a bagel sourced from Bagel Hole. Read more

    Difficult what to chose as everything is delicious. The most delicious lox bagel I've ever had. Bagels are unique - they're on the small side but so chewy and tasty.

    The original store is a much better value than the cafe. The smoked salmon and herring here will forever ruin your enjoyment of store-bought smoked salmon.

    Cured salmon, caviar...aaaaah

    Lives up to the hype - this location is not for sitting, take out only. Head over to Orchard St spot, but prepare to wait. Get the Classic Sandwich!

    Get the Irish Smoked Salmon. Best salmon in the world.

    Go with Scottish salmon loin (the superior cut) and scallion cream cheese on your bagel sandwich.

    Wasabi roe, whitefish, usually long wait, but always worth it

    Once you enter, grab the number tag to your left. Otherwise you won't be served!

    The best lox I've ever had! The line moves at a decent speed on the weekends, but it is definitely worth the wait.

    Amber Vittoria · November 17, 2014
  • Justin O.

    Get a bagel with lox. The salmon is rich and fatty with all that delicious fish oil. They also let you try their selection of cured fish. The creamed herring is good.

    Justin Ordoveza · November 15, 2014
  • Irma Z.

    A bit of a zoo. I much prefer their new cafe on orchid street. Great selection.

    Great place to buy Green's babka

    Caitlin Clements · November 4, 2014
  • Anne T.

    I usually go for the mild Scottish smoked salmon, the king salmon fish eggs (ikura), the smoked trout mousse, and the dill cream cheese. Sometimes I throw in a herring or two.

    Anne Taillandier · November 1, 2014
  • Omer Z.

    At $12+ the lox sandwiches are a little hard to justify, but for $3.75 get a bagel or bialy with their incredible lox cream cheese.

    Omer Zach · October 28, 2014
  • Hannah S.

    Obviously the lox. They are so thin and delicious 👍

    Best smoked salmon. Talk to them about your taste to get the right cut. Recommend buying a bagel elsewhere though and making your sandwich at home.

    Tohm Sansani · August 24, 2014

    Try one of everything ;) in particular, the pastrami cured salmon
