I've been going to Lenny's for years. The fresh lox is a fantastic way to start the weekend and the roast beef sandwiches are prime for nights I want a quick, filling dinner after work. As an unofficial bagel connoisseur, I have to address the previous review because the bagels at Lenny's are not undercooked. It's quite common for freshly baked bagels that come straight out of the oven to the baskets to experience osmotic pressure, especially in the more humid days of summer. Therefore, I accept that it's perfectly natural for some varieties to "sweat." I don't mind it cuz it indicates to me that the bagels are fresh.

I love Lennys bagels, but the last few times I have gone there the bagels have been undercooked -- certain parts have to be cut away because they are mush, and the rest of the bagel has a wetness to it that is unappealing. I dont like my bagels baked like bread -- and appreciate that these are real bagels, but unfortunately I have to comment that the quality seems to have gone down lately.

Lenny's Bagels Rock! And their coffee isn't bad either.

I grew up on lenny's bagels. You would think that one would get sick of having it over 20 years but this is the only place that I can go back to and know I will be more than satisfied. Their lemon-poppy and blueberry mini muffins are amazing! I get them every time with my bagel. They are so friendly and nice, just that alone makes me want to go back, not to mention their great bagels and even better prices.

They toast the bagels, it's much appreciated. Good place to read the paper and have a cheap eat.

Lenny's Bagels is the only place with a great variety of bagels--try to "My Ex" for jalapeno cheese flavor, or "My 2 Son" for a poppy, sesame seed, and sunflower seed bagel. Unlike some bagel shops, this one happily toasts the bagel for you--a must for me, who likes a warm treat for breakfast. They also have great bagel sandwiches and lunch specials. The prices are a steal compared to ritzier more boring options.

Yummmmy for a great value. Their salmon saved me during the holidays when family came to town. I love sitting near the big windows of this corner restaurant, munching on the bagels with a hot coffee on a winter day. The whole wheat with cream cheese gets me going in the mornings, and I usually pick up a few cookies when I leave work.
