My husband is from Long Island and I lived in Manhattan long enough to know what's worth the carbs. This a great traditional kosher bagel shop. We love their bagels and bialys. I'm usually an everything bagel toasted with lox spread girl and have never been disappointed. The only reason that this review isn't a 5 is that the service can sometimes be slow (but worth the wait) and they've given me the wrong bagel before a few times (but I eat it and always go back). It's always a nice local crowd!
