    No one makes a pumpernickel bagel like Ess-a-Bagel. Also, whole wheat everything.

    Ok but overhyped! Been coming here on & off ~16 yrs. Eggs are not made to order & ONLY served scrambled =not fresh. Also,last delivery took 2 HRS! Not worth wait. There are much better bagels in NYC.

    Do not come here for the egg sandwiches. They put egg and bacon in a bowl and microwave it. I expect that from dunkin donuts not a real bagel shop!

    Seems like a New York staple but hardly feels worth it to wait in a long line just to get yelled at by the staff. This bagel better be amazing....

    Bagel sandwiches are not worth the wait or the $. I got less than two layers of smoked salmon! Just get the bagels

    Maybe the best bagels. But they don't toast! Get take out so you can toast at home.

    You can get a bagel anywhere in NYC, but why the hell would you bother with anywhere else?

    As good as the bagels are, the line is always out the door due to slow servers.

    Didn't like it at all. They put my fruit salad in a way it leaked all over my roast beef bagel, and the watermelon in it was spoiled. They don't give you password despite they have two WiFi networks

    Definitely not the city's best bagels, and they are way too slow for NYC, but the best choice for midtown

    Skip the long line and go through the door to the right. The only difference is they won't slice or toast the bagel for you. Saves so much time!!

    If you're just getting plain bagels to go, don't wait in the main line, head to the back to the pickup counter.

    Very much overrated. Omelettes are made in a microwave, which is wired, and not surprisingly not tasty.
