    A Manhattan landmark, Zabar’s is part Jewish deli, part specialty store, and part home goods retailer. Go for the cheese, olives, and SodaStream carbonator refills (and the free rugelach samples). Read more

    To ensure you are always invited back for bagel breakfast and you've finally tasted the best lox in NYC, head to the one and only Zabar's for some double smoked nova, it's simple the best.

    A true Upper West Side staple--you want it? They've got it! Try any of their specialized sections or if you just want a quick bite you can get your bagel fix next door @ their express counter.

    The upper west side best food and cookware market. Go there for amazing salmon, the best and famous salmon and cream cheese bagel!

    Props for having the big jar of salted capers that no other store wants to carry. Also great stinky, gooey, washed rind cheese section. One of the few groceries in town that does not disappoint.

    Great place for expats to find their favourite food from around the world. And don't forget to tell the grumpy cashier it's her turn to wish you "Happy Thanksgiving back" ;)

    Known for its bagels, smoked fish, and cheeses, this traditional Jewish specialty food store in the Upper West Side is a local favorite. It can get crowded though so get there early!

    Fabulous gourmet food market. The selection of prepared foods, delicacies, coffees, and appetizing are a feast for the eyes and senses . They offer discounted parking across the street.

    Go to the deli, get the #1: Corned beef, pastrami, and tongue with Russian dressing and cole slaw on rye. Tender and piled high for $12. Delicious.

    The regular coffee is fantastic and a bargain: only $1.15 for a 12 oz cup! And if you're hungry for lunch, the turkey panini is a symphony of delicious flavours.

    A very nice market south of campus. It's worth a visit, even if just to experience it's cuteness! Great for kitchenitems and utensils on the upper level.

    They have the best chocolate chip scones. If you go to the bread counter near closing time they will often sell you lots of pastries for a reduced price. Like 6 bagels for $1.

    I didn't like the spinach knish very much and thought the spinach and feta croissant was ok. The croissant was buttery and delicious but the filling was too watery and goopy. Maybe went on off day?
