During this crazy time, finally made it out to the bettered bagel. Not sure I've had a better bagel on the island. So much flavor in the bagel alone you just don't always taste....but the best part was they have pork roll! Thought it's only in jersey. Delicious.. highly recommend.

Stopped in this place after leaving the DMV starving, all I’m gonna say it was the damn Chicken Cutlet sandwich I ever had.

This place is a joke the lady at the cashier is just plain rude. She kept yelling at the cook in front of everyone and he kept trying to politely explain what happed but she wouldn’t have it . I have a family business and this is not the way you treat your employees I thought it was unacceptable that she spoke to him in a condescending manner and trying make him look dumb and stupid in front of everyone.

I ordered a salad to go. I did take a little too long to pick it up, and when I came back the girl told me they hadn't even started it. Fine. I wait another 20 minutes to give them plenty of time to prepare it, but when I come back, it's still not ready, and the only thing the girl did was mix the greens and put cold chicken on top. They could have done all of that before I picked it up, but I had to wait for them to do it all while I was in a rush. She could have asked me before I got the salad what dressing I wanted or how I wanted the chicken but she didnt ask me until the second time i when to pick up my salad. Bad service.

One star because I can't give zero stars overpriced subpar food the only place in town so they can charge $2.36 for a large coffee that's very bitter

Was a great place but under the new management since the previous owner unfortunately passed away, the front has been a mess. Constant employees in and out and prices for the same items always being charged differently. A coffee and a bagel costed 4.80 one day and $5+ the next is ridiculous.... Furthermore, they upsale a lot of costco items as their own and resell the little brownie bites....STAY AWAY

Sucked! Really not a good bagel place . Don't know how it got good reviews. This stupid review won't let me write a short and to the point review. The place isn't good that's that

Love their Jalapeno Cheddar spread!

This place is packed . Very long wait. The guy on the grill was so nasty . Food and the cashier Linda are the Only good things about this place. She was running around like crazy but was still kind and friendly

Definitely the worst sandwich shop I've ever been to. I ordered a chicken cutlet with lettuce, tomato, onion, mozzarella and mayo. Somehow they messed up the mozzarella with provolone ( they probably thought I wouldn't notice the difference between the two), the lettuce looked old and the chicken looked all dried out as if it's been in the fridge for days and to make matters worse, they put the whole sandwich together horribly. It was such a mess to eat! Don't come here if you want a fresh and actually tasty sandwich.

This place intentionally scams everyone. I came in and ordered a small coffee. The guy purposely charged me for the medium thinking I will not notice. After charging me, I tell him to just give me a medium coffee. So he pours the small coffee in my cup into a medium size cup... and it turns out, they are exactly the same size.. one is just taller! SCAM! I also asked for coffee with no sugar and he gave it extra sweet and it was also burnt, had to throw it out. Stay away.

I just walked out of this place. I was waiting on line for a small coffee for over ten minutes. There was only one person in front of me. The cashier kept on getting her order wrong and adding items to it. It was a very frustrating customer service experience. There is a sign on the door for a cashier. Looks like they need one.

Great place for some bagels. Fast service

Pretty good place. Fast service, decent quality food, and good customer service. Pricing is not cheap, but not too expensive.

Decided to get a bagel egg/cheese substitute steak-um for bacon while waiting for DMV to open Low and behold I was charged $8.75 for the bagel and another $2.10 for a coffee. WTF What a shame. Sandwich tasted like shi#, threw it away.

This place is an absolute gem. The best bagels in Staten Island. I drive 10 min out of my way just to eat there. Staff is super friendly and the place is always spotless. Food is amazing! I would give it 10 stars if I could.

Oleg Chernov

I had a very satisfying bagel and coffee here. Quick and friendly service too.

Mike Brinskelle

Very friendly and professional staff. Bagels are great also

NYC Reviews

Food here is great. I ordered via doordash and usually when I out special instructions to customize my food, my requests are ignored, but this place made my order perfectly and everything was cooked perfectly. It is hard to find a place like this with fresh ingredients and a good menu.

Joseph Esposito

A little on the expensive side but good food n always fresh

Ian N.

Everyone here was friendly and on their game speed wise. Ordered a bacon egg and cheese on an everything and she asked if I wanted the bagel toasted and if I want saltpepperketchup. Perfect. The sandwich itself was good, but the bagel could have been a bit better. I long for that almost crusty outer shell with the soft inside... this bagel was just soft. That said, it wasn't chewy or stale, so still pretty good... just not the best bagel I've ever had in my life. Friendly, clean, close to my office... all good.

Great sandwiches and friendly customer service.

Went in to the store for the first time for breakfast and for a run of the mill bacon, egg and cheese on garlic bagel. Maybe because I was hungry I thought that was the best one I ever had in my thirty years in the Five Boroughs. They made the bacon crispy without burning it and they put so much bacon that I saved some for my lunch salad. Have to go back. Must go back to try other stuff. To be continued......

Just had bee here and mind blown. Reasonable prices. Amazing menu. Nice staff. Clean establishment. Hidden in the back of south avenue. I will definitely be back. Well worth the drive and effort to get to. Everything was so fresh. Check this place it.

Had bagels for day after my sons wedding. Best ever! Worth a drive from Ohio back to Staten Island some time

Dale S.

This is definitely the best bagel place in Staten Island. They treat you nicely. They have a good selection. As good as it gets. Wish there could one in port Richmond Staten Island.

I walked in after waiting hours in the DMV and was pleasantly surprised. The woman at the register was fantastic! she made my coffee perfectly, after I told her I was going through a diabetic low. She has a wonderful personality, thank you! I also had a perfectly made egg and cheese bagel that was delicious. Thank you guys!
