Love their bagel with cream cheese, so much cream cheese, the bagel is big and chewy. The clam chowder was tasty but not enough clam. The line was long but they were very fast and friend, very helpful with our order.

Whenever I go to NYC, I get bagels at this place. The cream cheese is mixed that morning with fresh ingredients, and their tofu cream cheeses taste just like the real thing! It's a bit pricey compared to most bagel shops, but you're definitely paying for the quality. My favorite cream cheese is the vegetable tofu, and my second favorite... More

Loved this shop. So many choices. My choice was a plain bagel, toasted, with scallion cream cheese. We ate in the restaurant, which was quite busy around 9am on a weekday during the holidays.

I like to think of myself as a bagel connoisseur, and Brooklyn Bagels are definitely up there in my rankings. The bagels tasted very fresh and had a good density, but where my disappointment lies, was with the lack of spread selections. It appears they have a ton when you walk in, but many are tofu spreads. I wanted to... More

Nice bagels and had a good spot to sit and eat breakfast. Went around 930 and there were tables available. The bagels are fresh and there is a mink option with so many different filling options. Friendly service, clean and well kept.

The Bagels and pastries were amazing! The place has seating if you can find a seat. So much to pick from. Definitely recommend this place if you want to experience the NYC bagels.

We visit NYC for the bagels among many other things. The last time we were at this joint was a year ago. Indeed, the quality and service are still excellent. This still will be our “go-to bagel shop” until we find another one better, which we doubt.

Great big selection of bagels and of what to put inside. The constant clientele traffic ensures everything is always fresh. Better to take away as seating is minimal. Quick service, typical NY.

Not all bagels are created equal. And these - oh they are delicious! A variety of bagels with a plethora of cream cheese spreads, the combinations are mind boggling - each one I've had, however, was better than the last. During this past trip, we got Oreo cream cheese - a real splurge, but so fantastic that I think we... More

I was looking for a bagel place close to my hotel and this place popped up. I'm so glad it did. The variety of spreads is huge and the bagels taste exactly like I expect a ny bagel to taste. Definitely going there again next time.
