Absolute Bagels Reviews
If ordering two bagels, order one bagel with the (vegan) cream cheese and the other without, then split. They give plenty to share on each bagel.
by Seth W.
Best bagel I've ever had in my life...and I don't even like bagels!
by Kathleen V.
Try the Everything Bagel - One of the best (via @Foodspotting)
by Mike C.
The salmon and chive cream cheese is delicious!
by Jenn N.
Finally found the best bagel joint in NYC. Toasted everything with herb cream cheese is perfection. FYI cash only.
by Steven L.
A tester absolument...un vaste choix de cream cheese ou de tofu dans des bagels qui sortent du four! Le tout pour un prix défiant toute concurrence.
by Claire G.
In loveeee with this place (:
by Julie A.
Bagel was delicious! Just be prepared to wait in a long line before ordering. The weekend is the best time to go - line is around the block on weekday mornings.
by Shani A.
If your bagels are sweating through the brown paper bag, that's a very good sign.
by jessica m. h.
Cinnamon raisin bagel toasted with raisin walnut cream cheese. Best bagels in NYC, no doubt.
by Kate C.
Not really what we expected!!
by Ron v.
Always ask for the bagels that are fresh out of the oven.
by Johnnie C.
Have the Tofutti cream cheese!
by Seth W.
Simply the best in the area and one of the best in Manhattan. Fist-bumped an employee this morning and sat down to enjoy my poppy seed w/ plain cream cheese bagel.

Do it, then don't stop doing it

One of New York's finest bagel spots.
by Serious Eats
Delicious in every way. Lox spread on sesame as always. Plugs are in the southwest corner of the room and such friendly staff won't kik you out for using them all afternoon :D
by Josh C.
Best bagel in NYC!
by Mark F.
Amazing pumpernickel, great with nova (super fresh) & cream cheese. Order everything at once (bagels and coffee) before you hit the register or be prepared to be screamed at...soup nazi style.
by Shannon V.
Omg thai iced tea AND bagels im crying tears of joy
by Annabelle F.
Heavenly. Nuff said.
by Elie B.
The health board has let them reopen. Thankfully.
by Roger S.
Sign on the shuttered door says "Be back on Wednesday." I hope that is true.
by Roger S.
Pas facile de commander tant il y a de possibilités différentes, mais c'est un vrai délice! Pensez à leur demander de ne pas mettre trop de cream cheese. Paiement en cash uniquement.

the best, no doubt
by Benjamin A.
Arrive early and eat straight from the oven. Serious Eats' best bagel on manhattan
by Olivia V.
Whole wheat everything bagels rival those at 72nd st bagels (which are ultimately better)
by Roger S.
If you see a line, don't worry. It goes by super quick. Straight out the oven freshness. Everything & Sesame is the best in NYC.
by Carla M.
Whole wheat everything with garlic and herb spread. Worth waiting in line for.
by Susan B.
The earlier you go. The longer the line.
by George R.
Yum!! Lox spread on a sesame bagel was an amazing way to start off my day. My tourist colors show...I didn't know I had to ask to get it toasted... next time!
by meredith w.
The best bagels in New York period.
by Trevor S.
Charges 10 cents for toasting. Truth it the bagels are always coming out fresh you don't need a toast. Coffee could be better.
by Matthew C.
Excellent bagels and they have a whole menu of tofutti cream cheese options if you are vegan or dairy free.
by Etan H.
Great bagels, fast service but it's cash only so be prepared. You don't want to be #thatguy that only has a credit card.
by John B.
The herb cream cheese is amazing!
by Monica K.
The best bagel I've ever had, hasn't changed an iota in 15 years.
by Sam F.
Outstanding bagels, a gem in the upper west side. Full review...
Abso-fuckin-lutely the best bagel on the UWS
by Caitlin R.
Get there early so you don't wait. Early is like 8am...not 9am. Oops.
by Holden K.
Pumpernickle Bagel- White Fish , slice of Onion

Bread pudding made from bagels is a treat.
by Sandy C.
by Proper Idleness
Egg bagels are extraordinary fresh and they freeze well too.
by L S.
wait for a fresh batch - it turns a B grade bagel into an A+
by jessica m. h.
Wait for a poppy freshly made. Worth the extra wait!
by jeremy s.
1 buck for a small coffee and another buck for a bagel "as is." Great breakfast stop for the money saving new York kid like me!
by Barbara P.
