    Definitely not the best bagels in NYC, as they claim. H&H is MUCH better (and friendlier)

    Decent bagels but the service is terrible and the credit card minimum is less than ideal. They do deliver though!

    Bacon egg and cheese is good. They don't have sausage.

    Everything bagel

    Rude, rude, rude! I always ask my sister to buy for me jnstead because I cannot stand their attitude! Worst customer service! Go somewhere else.

    The bagels and convenience are worth the rude service and credit card minimum.

    Slow, they need help getting people out the door quickly. But the bagels are good.

    $10 credit min. Good bagel, not too chewy, not too crunchy. Just right.

    Tracey Churray · February 19, 2014
  • Sarah H.

    Plain bagel with plain cream cheese. Can't go wrong.

    Sarah Hodges · April 4, 2013
  • Jen L.

    They offer tofu cream cheese but no milk options for vegans. That lacks logic.

    Love their pumpernickel bagel toasted with vegetable cream cheese + a small morning cuppa joe.

    Best Bagels on the upper east side

    Slow service but the bagels are okay. Not the best by any means

    Elizabeth Lukasiewicz · October 13, 2012
  • Conor W.

    Long wait for mediocre overpriced bagels.

    Conor Welter · June 5, 2012
  • Katie N.

    The flat bagels here are great. Try flat whole wheat everything.

    Katie Nadler · June 3, 2012
  • Steve C.

    Best bagels in NYC. You heard it here first. ;-)

    Steve Campbell · June 2, 2012
  • Brian C.

    I love the beagles. I hate the customer service. Consistently slow and rude.

    Brian Cristiano · March 23, 2012
  • Brian C.

    Possibly the worlds WORST customer service... If their bagels didn't taste so good I would never eat here.

    The skinny workers will think you're fat. Asked for a Coke and an everything bagels with tofu cream cheese: given a Diet Coke.

    Travis Anderson · November 13, 2011

    Fresh, delicious traditional New York bagels here. Hits the spot on the morning walk to the subway and after work before dinner too. Love! Love! Love!

    DeShaun Harris · November 9, 2011

    Be prepared to order aggressively and repeat yourself, but the bagels are worth it

    Monte Babington · September 11, 2011
  • Michael W.

    Toasted flat bagels are crunchy and delicious.

    Michael Wallerstein · June 26, 2011
  • Ross S.

    Inconsistency hurts this great bagel place, so make sure to ask if the bagel is fresh and soft before ordering your bagel. The everything bagel with vegetable cream cheese is the best.

    Free wifi. Really wide selection. Love the Taj special.

    Underrated egg cheese sandwich - not on menu, you need to ask for it. Only before 11 am.
