    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.

    Legit the slowest bagel store in manhattan. Took 25 mins for 3 sandwiches. Also their signature flavor of burnt coffee is heinous.

    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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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