Ess-a-Bagel, New York, NY

Ess-a-Bagel Restaurant Review

: Many bagel aficionados argue that Ess-a-Bagel makes the best bagels in New York. We're inclined to agree --- except for when, once in a while, we get one that isn't quite baked through. Cut and rolled by hand, the bagels are low in salt and preservative- and sugar-free. They're also huge. Flavors run the usual gamut, as do the many cream cheese spreads. They also make bagel sandwiches galore, and serve specialty coffee drinks. Ess-a-Bagel's bagels are kosher.
