496 Albany Ave, Kingston
I moved to Philadelphia from the Hudson Valley 12 years ago. Because the bagels here are so terrible, often, I will wake up in a cold sweat just screaming “SUNRISE BAGELS!” My wife kept asking me, why I do yell about a bagel shop from my childhood in my sleep. I told her I couldn’t explain. I would just have to show her. So we packed up the kids and the dog and drove all the way home...a pilgrimage of sorts.As we crested the ridge of Ulster Avenue, the sun literally rose above Sunrise; a testament and a tribute all in one. We placed our orders and sat down as a family. As excited as I was, I balked on taking the first bite...I wanted to see the reaction in my family’s eye as they bit into their very first bite, something I wish I could experience for the first time.What happened next was a defining moment in my life. As my wife looked at me dead in my eyes and said “...it’s good,” a pregnant pause overcame the table. I feigned an excuse of leaving my phone in the car and as I pulled out of the parking lot and got back on 87, my dog and I never looked back.If you see my wife or kids, tell them this story. If you ain’t Sunrisin’ you’re Sunsettin’ ya dig?
If you're looking for big, soft, and fresh bagels, this is your place.
Best bagel I have ever had and the cheapest. The bagels are huge and have a great chew. The line out the door says it all! Bring cash,no cards accepted although there is an ATM in the cafe.
They have rye bagels!!!!!! And they are ginormous and amazing.
Best bagel sandwiches period. If you want to amaze your taste buds and you have a few hundred calories to spare, just repeat this to one of the friendly counter staff:Sausage egg and extra cheese on an everything bagel. Scooped out, toasted, extra butter, salt pepper ketchup...Boom! Pair it with their fresh gourmet coffee or a Boices Dairy chocolate milk and you're gonna have a good day!
Originally from nassau long Island where I grew up a few blocks from one of the nationally ranked bagel places.With that being said Sunrise has some of the best, and freshest bagels I've ever had the pleasure of having.Thanks for reminding me of home!
I've been wanting to try authentic NY style bagels and was finally brought here for breakfast, The bagels are truly amazing: crunchy on the outside, and soft and fluffy on the inside. I'll definitely have to pop in the next time I'm in Kingston.
If it was up to me I would eat here everyday. Literally I tell everyone about this place its AMAZING.
The best bagels I have ever had. Huge & soft. Very friendly people. Cash only. They do have an ATM tho. Very large drink selection as well.
Sunrise has the best bagels I have ever eaten! They are always fresh and they are generous with the cream cheese. That being said, they seem very unorganized. I have been going there for years and they have never established an "order here" and "pay here" system which is implied but not made obvious. Patrons frequently ask each other, "have you ordered yet?" Also orders are not always accurate so if getting food to go, CHECK YOUR ORDER BEFORE YOU LEAVE! Lastly, as a courtesy to those who have never visited; THEY ARE A CASH ONLY BUSINESS.
Delicious bagels! Our only complaint is how busy it is!! Get there early ;)
Incredibly delicious and HUGE bagels for a fair price. These guys know how to make a bagel and no matter what you put on it they always get it right. I've noticed a lot of places will mess up your order if it's out of the ordinary but I often come here and load up my bagels with everything from pesto cream cheese to roasted red peppers and sliced cheese. They have lox and cream cheese bagels of course or just grab a breakfast sandwich.
Sunrise is a Kingston institution. Their bagel selection is classic. The size is like a mini loaf of bread. Cream cheese varieties are also available for take out. Breakfast samies are a must here. Try the pastrami and Swiss cheese omelet on the bagel if your choice. You'll return again and again!
Hands down the best bagels EVER. I have yet to find anything to compare. The staff are always so friendly and the food is ALWAYS delicious. Thank you so much for all you do. I've been coming here since high school, and I have probably told a million people about the place as well. When I hear someone has never been to sunrise, I ask "Are you crazy?" You don't know what your missing. ???
