I love this place! I am from Toronto, ON and any time I think about visiting NYC, B & H is one of the first things that comes to mind. I also love their Challah bread, it's great! I will eat here as much as I can when I am in town. The staff are incredibly friendly and I find the atmosphere charming.

this is my boyfriend's favorite place in the city (he ate here about 4 times a week before I started cooking for him)! he took me here after just 2 dates and I fell in love as well. the guys that work here are hilarious and attentive and the woman that cook in the back are amazing to watch. I love the split pea soup and french toast. his favorite thing is the carrot cake and caprese sandwich. we like to bring our own coffee for breakfast (B&H's coffee is a bit lackingbut that's the only thing). I havent tried the chili and grains yet, but it looks delish. I dont' want to recommend it too much (selfishly), as it can get a bit crowded with just a few customers, but i think everyone should check it out.

Their Challah Bread is out of this world. I love their soup! The split pea and the mushroom barley are my 2 favorites. If I have their soup and I knish I'm full for the day. They use a little more oil than I like when cooking the eggs, but that's a personal thing. All I can say is I keep going back. It's fast, reasonable and a lot of food. It's very, very small though. So if you are looking for a place to strech your legs out, this isn't it.

The food is so good. I discovered this place last week. I have been back twice. I had mac and cheese yesterday and my mom had the split pea soup and perogies. Everything was so so so good. It is the ultimate in comfort food. Nothing on the menu is more than 7.50. You must try their challah bread with butter. It is too die for. I am not a vegatarian and was VERY satisfied with the selections.

I love this narrow, little hole in the wall! The borscht was delicious and came with a pile of buttered bread (which reminded me of Catholic grade school lunch). Then I had a slab of flounder casserole, which I couldn't finish, but really wanted to. Very simple, hearty fare. And all for $7.50.

I first ate at the B&H in the early 80's -- a nice Jewish boy from the midwest who, in my first month at NYU fell in love with New York, got a mohawk on St. Marks, and adopted the B&H as a second home. I ate several times a week at the B&H, and I still count thier challah french toast and cabbage soup among my favorite foods. The croquettes were a luxury reserved for special occasions. The lox omelette was too. The menu may not change a lot, and that is ok with me. Consistancy can be a virtue. Especially when we are talking about freshness, value, and taste. I never travel to New York without making it to the B&H!

I have been coming to B&H for 32 Years now and little has changed. The food is as good as ever and as it has always been, it's still the people behind the counter that makes this plain looking place the special piece of the city that it is. They serve a slice of the Soul of this city.
