I get tired of Panera bagels which aren't made the proper way. So when I went to New York recently, it was important to get REAL bagels. When I read about Bagel and Schmear I had to go because it was close to where i was staying. I was not disappointed! For about four days I went to get a... More

There is a good variety for breakfast, muffins, cakes etc. Also very reasonable for a quick lunch. Small soup and crackers $4.08 I go there often.

A little expensive $24.00 for two bagels with smoked salmon - that being said they were delicious. Coffee was good

We picked up a quick breakfast from here several times in the last week, partly because it was so convenient to where we were staying but also the food is fresh and of good quality. We tried the breakfast burrito, plain croissant, and a bagel and lox - all were very nice. They have a big menu and aren't very... More

Grab a bagel or breakfast sandwich (and later meals as well) with the locals heading to work in this small shop. Nice folks, convenient service and great bagels.

This is the only thing I had because it was so good I went back for the same the next day. Everything else looked good too.

they are open early for breakfast and have some great choices. Prices are fair and sandwiches are plenty full. The pastries are fresh and very tasty.

Wife and I had two bagels - both salmon and cream cheese. Had mine toasted. All OK. Service was just OK. We were both clearly novice bagel orderers (being British) and overwhelmed by the choice. Man behind counter was passive and not particularly helpful. So the whole experience was a bit average.

Very short walk from the Gansevoort Hotel on 28 ave. You will get a great selection of tailor made bagel sandwiches and special cookies. Try this out! You will not be dissapointed. But check opening hours!

Two doors up from the Park South Hotel, Bagels & Schmear provides the best breakfast near the hotel. The bagels are the best you can find in NYC and you can get them with various cream cheeses, lox, bacon or eggs. Coffee service is typical New York style that provides that morning lift. Top off breakfast or return after an... More
