    As a New Yorker, I have pretty High standards for bagels. But this place is great! They've got a huge selection of bagels and artisanal cream cheeses. The sriracha guava cream cheese is amazing.

    The new Breakfast Sandwich is AWESOME! The pumpernickle bread is ridiculously good and the side of potatoes are delicious! And only for $7.50. Just found my new break from shopping spot.

    I’m not sure if “stuffed” is a reference to the dish or how I felt after eating, but I’ll take a food coma for the cornflake-crusted challah slices layered with whipped strawberry cream cheese. Read more

    For the “Italian,” a ciabatta is piled high with Genoa salami, capicola, mortadella and provolone, glistening with an enjoyably acidic red wine vinaigrette. Read more

    The food here is great: if you're looking for a delicious lunch spot, try the goat cheese BLT, the avocado salad, or any of the flagels.

    Unsure how long it will last, but $5.99 lunch special including drink from 12 to 3 during the week is about a $4.50 savings.

    The corn beef hash is a tad mushy; 11th City Diner's is much better.

    This place was my fav 2 years ago but not anymore. My bagel was not toasted today. And potatoes as side dish with my omelette were just frozen cold.

    Not recommended. The Ruben was lacking sauerkraut and coleslaw was horrible. The breakfast potatoes must have been from a week ago!

    Avoid this place. They served a moldy poppy bagel. Didn't apologize, didn't offer even a replacement or refund. Four Points disavowed a link
