Reviews for Ess-a-Bagel

When I hear about the New York bagel, you really don't know what the New Yorkers are talking about until you get one. What a difference. And this is one of the classic bagel shops in the city. Excellent everything bagel. With crispness and tenderness with gerous schmeer!

This bagel spot is a must when visiting New York City! They are always welcoming and quick with orders. Their bagels are fresh, delicious and a perfect pair with their many flavors of cream cheese or the classic egg and cheese. My favorite was the pumpernickel or cinnamon raisin bagel with cinnamon apple cream cheese!

Thought I'd try this place as it's in my nearby neighborhood and heard a lot of hype about it, and I think it was worth a visit! Got here on a Friday morning at ~10:30 AM and it was really crowded inside (definitely no social distancing), maybe around 15 people in line. The line moves fast, so you should definitely be ready with your order. I got a bacon, egg, and cheese on an everything bagel and it was prepared pretty timely and tasted really good even though had to get it full review
