    The best ever

    I have been brought up on Yonah Schimmel knishes for 69 years. My parents introduced them in Coney Island in the 40's and to this day when we are back in NYC the priority is getting to Yonah and buying enough to take home (which is now in Arizona). We als

    Best knishes

    I lived my whole life (until 10 years ago) in NY, and was raised on gefilte fish, knishes, perogies, and all foods "Jewish, " so I KNOW. These are the best knishes in the entire universe. Now I live in NH and have them sent. What? You think they have knis

    I'm giving a fiver on the atmosphere

    Everything thats been said about the food (which on the date of this review was 100% favorable) is true. You may disagree w/ me on the atmosphere . . . unless, you want to experience NYC of the 40s or further. You'll sit at a long bench, the stools (yes

    If you want old New York, this is it. The Knish is a New York icon, and there are very few places left that know how to do it. Yonah Schimmels do it to perfection, with pride. All their flavors..I just ate a cabbage one recently that was delicious. I

    The best there is!

    I grew up with these and Mrs. Stahl's, and rediscovered them when I moved back. So insanely good. Cheap, friendly service, nostalgic dining area, and amazing egg creams.
