I have a rolling suitcase dedicated to Tal bagels/bialys/ and prune danish. The bagels are fabulous. I buy about 6 dozen to take back to DC everytime I visit NYC. They are nice people and always smile when I come in even if it is 6 months since my last visit. Whoever said they got a bad bagel there has rocks in their heads! Most people have no idea of how to evaluate a bagel. Best bagels and bialys! I shipped 4 doz prune danish to my Dad for his 80th birthday. That is all he wanted. His Mom was a fabulous pastry maker from Vienna. He knew the best. I love Tal's bagels and the people who run it. There are a lot of kooks out there who just love bashing eateries. I bet they never ate a Tal's bagel if they said they were anything less than superb. Please, I am a food freak, a quality freak, a master baker...... I know of what I speak. Enjoy!

This has been my go-to bagel place for the past 2 years, but lately every single time I order from there the bagels are so stale!! If toasted they're hard as rocks. I only order from them on weekends which is their busiest time, so you would think the bagels would be fresh! Very disappointed.

The bagels taste like they bought them from a grocery store, the service is subpar and the price is absurd. I order an everything bagel with eggwhite egg salad and lettuce, tomatoes and onions and it came out to $6.45. The bagels are so thin and small when I took a bite the whole sandwich fell apart. I would never ever go here or recommend anyone do.

The employees in this place do not pay attention to any of your requests. Even if you have a food allergy and specifically ask them to make sure there are no nuts or seeds, you may still have an allergic reaction (as I did). They asked 4 times what I wanted to order and still got it wrong. The quality of the food is great, but $10 for a bagel with meat is way overpriced. They should care more about food allergies and less about being Kosher.

Food is very good. Worth trying if you don't mind being treated with total disrespect and don't mind being cheated. One of my favorite things there is when the yell "next" they look away and you have no idea who said it or who they are talking to. They love to give you more than you order (on purpose) and when you comment they get annoyed. However, because of location and food quality they do business.

I ordered breakfast delivery from here and when it arrived, instead of the whole wheat everything bagel toasted with scallion cream cheese, sliced tomatoes and onions (yum) that I was looking forward to, I got a rock hard burnt bagel with LOX, runny tomatoes and lots of onions... Even if they had gotten the cream cheese part right, it would still be inedible. No thanks.
