Fresh bagels with whatever topping you desire. Decent tea selection. Saw others were having bagel sandwiches, but I'm a purist and just wanted mine with creme cheese. Nice people. Cozy spot to sit down and enjoy.

This is a truly authentic place... Bagels are delicious, do nut miss the one with Salmon, Cream Cheese, Tomato and Onions, it is fantastic! Please is a little bit pricy, be careful, we picked up an "organic" lemonade from the fridge and it was 9 DOLLARS! So better a glass of water or a good coffee, but the bagels are... More

Stopped in for a breakfast. Nice range of choices and very tasty bagels. The latte was the best we had during our NYC trip.

I was a little taken aback by the price of the of a bagel with lox spread but I must say it is the best lox spread I have ever had. Instead of a purée of Lox and cream cheese it had nice pieces of Lox in it. The flavor was excellent. Of course the bagels are great too, but... More

In most of these bagel places, seating is a commodity. Always a good idea to scope out a seating area while ordering or have your partner take the seat. We got our usual Everything bagel and were somewhat disappointed. The flavor was slightly sweet and you really couldn't taste the different flavors of the Everything. The bagel was a little... More

The best bagels in town. Variety of spreads and bagels are great. It is quite busy but they have a system in place that makes it work like a well oiled machine. I have been there three times, my only critic is that the people who take orders are not capable of handling custom orders. Twice i ordered bagel double... More

A local told me about this place. I am not a new yorker, so granted, I'm not an expert. But this bagel did not really meet me expectations. It seemed stiff, not as flavorful as I was hoping - and a bagel with lox is over 10$. It's been around a long time, so it has that rustic charm. But... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
