Stopped here each day to pick-up bagels for breakfast and Starbucks just down the street. Hot, tasty bagels that were freshly made. If you are in the area, don't miss it!! Very helpful staff.

It makes me sad to write this because I really do like their bagels & cream cheeses. I have been a frequent customer of this establishment since they opened their doors, and the truth is, they really do not deserve it. I used to be a walk-in customer, but with the exception of a manager or two, I stopped walking-in... More

Great place to grab a bite on the go. Just a few tables to sit. I was on my way to grand central so picked up a bagel sandwich on my way. Friendly people working and just what I needed on the go.

My boyfriend and I came here practically everyday for breakfast. Food is always fresh and hot, and on top of that taste great. We're from miami, and we both said never have we've eaten anything so tasty. The employees are so kind and welcoming.

Wow great fresh bagels of many types (whole wheat everything is our fav) with dollops of your topping of choice - (regular cream cheese and the sundries tomato are our favs) Coffee here is very good as well!

Bagel Express has a lot of bagel flavors and a lot of options for topping them. Try to stick with popular bagels, though--the plain bagel was great, but the whole wheat bagel was the last one in the basket and was hard.

200 metres from the hotel, fresh baked bagels with so much choice. We had breakfast ones and the cream cheese with smoked salmon which was on point.. plus it's reasonable priced. Recommended

Love all the variety of fillings, the staff are very efficient, and the location was, perfect, right around the corner from our hotel (Pod 39) and close to the Central station.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
