I don't know why this is listed as empire this establishment has been renamed to bagel cafe & was renovated twice from what Ive seen. I also don't understand the high pricing for bagels & coffee it is only a bagel spot not a restaurant. The lines were moving real slow don't wish to be back here.

My wife & myself walked from Columbia st to try this place out, considering the fact that this use to be called empire now it is named bagel cafe considering the fact we go to la bagel delight more often. We both had 4 different visits trying there food out everything we tried tasted terrible & the prices were colossal. The orders took a while to receive rather go to la bagel delight from now on sorry we gave you quite a few visits to improve your game.

I tried this place out before the name changed to bagel cafe a week ago. Bistro tried but bagels fell below my expectations & prices were too high considering the area. I have seen better bagels. It was a good try to renovate & alter the name to Bagel cafe but still not convinced same problems are still there with staff & prices sorry will not return.

I tried to give this cafe the benefit of the chance, unfortunately it didn't impress me. I remember when they first opened they were called Empire bistro since they changed to Bagel cafe yesterday figured let me give them another chance despite the bad experience I had with bistro. The only good thing this place has going for them is that they added lots of new things to the menu despite the fact the lines dont move fast enough & the coffee I had tasted really watery. My bagel was kind of stale tried the blueberry muffin to see if there would be a difference tasted too buttery. Honestly don't feel like I was impressed wont be returning bagel world on Court st is so much better in terms of quality & service.

I had two visits here when I come to the heights to visit a friend, had different sandwiches and bagels it was alright but not the greatest.
I also found it a bit expensive compared to bagel world on Court st.

I'm a bagel person eat bagels everywhere thought I try this place out big mistake. I had only the two people in front of me and my order took 25 min for a bagel and a turkey sandwich. The bagel tasted OK but not super good. My coffee was cold after taking two sips had to ask for another one young lady behind the counter gave it to me. whoever likes it it is OK with me but to me its not worth going over and over again.

First off i would defiantly say that the 1star reviews dont make any sense at all. I have been coming here for the past 6 months now and this place keeps getting better and better, there prices are not what people are saying. $15 for a bagel, bialy and a coffee? those are obviously the business owners of the cafes they list they rather go to so its defiantly a fraud.

They have really amazing bagels which they make fresh daily which taste amazing. I truly have to admit they're bagels taste superior to regular NY style bagels we get in our other local bagel shops. I was very impressed the first time i tried them and I keep coming back all the way from Sheepshead bay.They just came out with awesome new sandwiches which run my pockets for around $8 which is very reasonable considering the size of them.

This is a great place to go for a quick lunch or to grab a nice bite to eat when you are hungry, and would recommend it to other people in the area to try. The place is super clean and the staff is always friendly and get me in and out of there quick.

This place catered our party today and everybody was so happy! First, they actually delivered everything we ordered, whereas other places confuse the orders. Second, everything they delivered was still hot, fresh, and delicious. Finally, it was cheap!!!

I came here with my kids before work and the staff was nice enough to take us in the back and show us how the bagels are baked. I didn't try the bagels before today, but I'm a believer now. They are much, much, MUCH more flavorful than any other bagel I've tried. They are not sweet, but the after taste is really something else. It is pretty funny that someone can make BAGELS so great. Kudos!

This place is such a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. The other reviews here look fake, honestly, because this place is super-well organized. The food is excellent, the bagels are always fresh, and to die for. The service is super-friendly. Sometime it takes a little to get the food but it is always worth it. Also, I think this place has actually spoiled me with their coffee.

I have never been to a bagel cafe this horrible before in my life. I have been hanging out in the heights for years never seen anything like it. I ask for a bagel with cream cheese and end up with a bagel that has butter, coffee was really freezing what a way to start a Mon morning when I was there last Monday. The store wasn't busy there were only 2 people in front of me and it took close to 25 min to get my order. The bagel tasted really lousy and had no flavor to it. Iam lucky Montague st bagel is still open next to key food just go back to them from now on its been a while any way will never go back to B&B again. To really top it off they don't keep the store clean there is a bad odor in there.

There was alot of talk about a bagel cafe from Montreal opening up soon. I walk around the heights there it is. I walked in sat down ordered a herb tuna salad sandwich, with a coffee and a sesame bagel. My order was a fouled up a few times asked for cream cheese and received butter instead. It took a while to get my order in the first place, my tuna salad sandwich tasted really horrid and it cost me $8.00 altogether. The thing that really got me about this bagel cafe is the fact that it doesn't feel like your in a bagel store. They have colossal prices as though your in a diner. My coffee was $2.00, bagel with cream cheese was $2.50 and eight for the sandwich this is really a bad joke and the place is not kept clean either have seen litter and garbage all over the place. rather support court st bagels instead they are better quality bagels and prices are more fair.

It didn't surprise me that Empire bagel cafe has been closed for the past month, establishment was not kept clean go to the bathroom find two dead water bugs on the floor. I had one of there sandwiches with a cup of coffee plus a refill. This store is an outrage ended up spending more compared to an ordinary bagel store or cafe for the prices I was charged vastly expensive. The service can be rude depending on whose there a girl I know who works down the block from Empire told me the female cashier can be sarcastic at times and boy was she right she embarrassed me in front of people will never come back here.

There was considerable talk about B&B when they first opened in the area, it is my understanding that they are from Montreal Canada. Despite all the hype B&B empire didn't do it for me even though the same owner altered his name to bagel cafe two weeks ago. I felt like I was eating in a diner instead of a bagel store. My coffee, bagel & a donuts were really expensive. The service was a joke and a travesty moving way too slow. I don't think I will be back too expensive to spend.

My boyfriend and I on occasion hang out in the heights. We came across Empire and decided to check it out, wasn't thrilled with it. There Bealle and a coffee cost us diner prices for the two of us it came out to $15.00. I tried one of there cappuccinos just to see what it was like it tasted like water and for $4.00 how retarded. I would recommend going to Montague street bagels better cheaper and better products.

It was my understanding this business started in Montreal Canada,
based on the hype that was going around when the place opened for business. I half to be quite frank wasn't happy with what I saw and ate. I don't know how these people will stay open.
I had a cream cheese and jelly bagel with a coffee. It did not taste fresh at all it felt two days old. I had to change my coffee because
top of the container was dirty. I went through vast aggravation for a
$8.00 order. There hours are never consistent I remember making a second trip to try there espresso to go around 2pm, even though the sign says close at 4 they weren't open anyway, If you close at 2 change the sign its common sense so people don't make the trip for nothing. I live in the same building as empire and I would rather walk to Montague st bagels anytime.

Me and my brother do work for the water dept in the heights. We are always a fan of pancakes thought we try the buttermilk pancakes not only did they came out very soggy but distasteful. I only drank my coffee and left it cost 22 for two people really mediocre pricing for breakfast. I will start to go back to bagel market better food for cheaper prices on 7 ave. We ordered two coffees to go afterwards and
it came out to another five bucks. This is not a store for breakfast.

I was not too impressed with empire bagels. I had the lox with cream cheese with a coffee. It cost me too much for what I ordered ridiculously priced. The coffee tasted like water bagel tasted really stale. $2.00 for a 10 oz coffee I felt like I was in Starbucks. The chocolate chip cookie tasted like a rock. I dont think I will be eating here again. I cant believe I came from sunset pk just to eat here even though I hang out here once in a while with a buddy of mine.
