Bagels & Co.

I love this place's bagels and their choices of spreads. The only problem is that everytime I go in there and order something they get my order wrong and then get annoyed at me because I'm telling them they got my order wrong and telling them over and over what my order is. Nobody listens to you and gets pissed when you order anything that has more than one syllable. I only go here because their bagels are awesome but the attitude has got to go. That's another thing, you are a bagel place that doesn't toast bagels?! And they don't take cash either. If it weren't for the bagels, the annoyance of going here is would probably put them out of business.

Used to go there a lot, bagels were always pretty fresh. More expensive than other neighborhood places, but better quality. A good crew working there.

Five Years ago, I spent the summer working in NYC and lived next door to Bagels & Co. The folks there became dear friends and generous providers for my hungry stomach each day following many long hours of work. Their hospitality and pure desire to bring joy to their customer's lives is obvious from the minute you cross the threshold to the moment you leave. Four years later, I found myself in the city and made it a point to visit my long lost friends. I was sure that they would not remember me, but was soon proven wrong. Without any hesitation, I was recognized and we picked up right where we left off. I have now been back a third time and received the same welcome and was given yet another wonderful meal. I am thankful for souls such as these that bring life to Manhattan. It is they who remind us to keep living with persistance and a glad heart. So take a stroll uptown and enjoy a slice of the kosher life.

I have ordered appetizing and bagels from alot of places in the neighborhood and nothing compares to how fresh and delicious everything was. The bagels were still warm when I got them and the salads, lox, and cheese platters I ordered were presented really nice. They were very polite and accomodating. It was also a good price considering the quality of the food. My guests were happy, my husband was happy and I highly recommend them.

I live upstairs from this place, and let me tell you, it is a godsend...open later hours, and the food is so good. Plus, it is kosher, a plus if you are Jewish and follow those rules. In the warmer weather, the doors are open and ready for lounging and pondering...

We had the break fast on Yom Kippur and I ordered fish platters, fruit platters, and assorted cheeses, not to mention bagels, and rugulech. Their bagels are like the ones I used to get growing up. The presentation of the platters was amazing and it tasted as good as it looked. I didnt lift a finger yet I got all the credit. Highly recommended.

The staffs are friendly and attentive, even sometimes offer a freebie like a free piece of bagel or extra cookie for tasting. I am not a big fan of bagels (except H&H's), but one time I got one for free (came with the spread I ordered), and it was very fresh and tasty--outside is crusty, inside is soft yet chewy, with lots of flavor. It was a great surprise. In next visit, I ordered a lox bagel and I liked it a lot. Price could be ideally a bit lower for sandwiches and salads, but I guess they have to be in that way as they close all day Sat. No need to mention whether food is fresh as their Rabbi is watching...
