Blogger Reviews of Ess-a-Bagel

  • Passport Eater on Apr 24, 2014

    There is an extensive selection of spreads and accompaniments. Take the cream cheese options: some of the more unusual offerings include apple cinnamon, berry berry, olive, and chocolate chip. The strawberry cream cheese is a personal favorite, its sweet, fruity punch harmonizing with the mild, creamy base.

  • Brad G.“The New York bagel is a classic, a must. Ess-a-Bagel would be an impeccable choice, either Midtown or downtown. Find a better bagel in your town? Not bloody likely.” 2 locations (midtown or downtown)

  • Alex F.Whole wheat everything with light scallion... Always a winner

    55555 by Alex F.


  • Bri G.I pass 15+ bagel places en route to this spot, but it's totally worth it. Weekend mornings, expect it to take 10 mins or so.

    55555 by Bri G.


  • Jesse T.They do not toast bagels! But it's fun to ask and see their reaction anyway :)

    55555 by Jesse T.


  • Bri B.I was excited to try the bagels here, but never got the chance because no one offered to take my order after standing at the counter for about 1-2 min. Never going to return.

  • Danielle Z.Nothing compares to the deliciousness that is an everything bagel with olive cream cheese. The et bagels have a savory, crunchy, seedy coating with a soft and doughy delicious inside.

    55555 by Danielle Z.


  • Red F.The best bagels in New York. I'm an "everything with scallion cream cheese" kind of guy myself, but that's pure breath hubris. Just don't ask for it toasted, you noob.

    55555 by Red F.


  • Dominique B.Get the everything bagel here. You'll never eat anything else.
