You've got to love the bagels at this place. They're huge. Like, astronomically huge. Like, seriously huge. Amazingly huge. Perfectly huge. Yeah, they're that good.

And the toppings ain't half bad either.

You know the old saying "never eat in an empty restaurant"
Well the opposite is true too... if you have to wait 15-20 min on line to get a bagel they are doing something right.
I think these are the best bagels in the city... and what they

This place has good bagels 1) If you get them when they're still hot and 2) if they somehow don't screw up your order.

I've been there several times. The line is always a disaster and no one seems to care. There are a lot of employees standing around, but god knows what they're doing. Today the guy literally asked me to repeat my order FOUR TIMES (and asked every customer several times...not just me). I watched more than one employee screw up order after order--and customers coming back for corrections. PAY ATTENTION. THIS ISN'T BRAIN SURGERY. They charge a lot, and I got home today and once again my order was wrong, missing all the ingredients i paid for. The bagels were bland because they weren't fresh out of the oven...I know people like a good bagel that doesn't have to be toasted, but I'd rather go two blocks south to David's and get a toasted bagel, and know that my order will be correct without fail 100% of the time.

Pros: Good bagels, when they get your order right

Cons: Service, prices, intelligence level

Bagels are more expensive but are hearty.

You know a bagel is good when toasting it does it no justice.

Order it fresh, NOT toasted and enjoy the texture of one of the few LEGIT bagel places, left in the city.

If you're feeling aggressive order an everything bagel with a cold cut or any salad.

This place is awesome! They have great bagels and the best Vegetable Cream Cheese (DO NOT get the low-fat kind - it does not taste the same). They deliver for office parties and are very prompt and provide accurate orders. The staff is top notch!

My favorite bagels in NY. They are absolutely fresh and chewy with a nice crust. The only problem is they are too big. This is an old school bagel joint, no atmosphere, service isn't particularly friendly, but these are bagels they way they were meant to be.

Bagels the size of basketballs are served with all possible schmears including some tofu options for the health-conscious. The man behind the counter adds a colorful touch to the experience and he often talks to and mocks the crowd waiting on the never-ending weekend line. But the food and the experience are well worth the wait. Order in to avoid the line.

I went to Ess A Bagel expecting the rude counter service written about in many of these past reviews but I was treated very nicely even though it was painfully clear I was a first time customer, and I'm a guy! I had a basic bagel with lox and creamcheese which was quite frankly, the best bagel I have ever eaten. Sure, it is a bit pricey but they do use top quality ingredients. The lox had a deliciously smokey taste and was of Russ & Daughter's quality. The creamcheese was smooth and rich, the perfect accompaniment to their substantial and crusty bagel. I can't wait to go back and try some of their other bagel sandwich offerings. From what I could see from what others were eating, they all looked great.

Cons: Others say rude counter service but I didn't encounter this

I recently visited a friend in New York. One morning she suggested we go here for Breakfast/Lunch. I was exactly excited about it, but when she said that they had Lox I was in. It was a little overwhelming as far as order and I had her boyfriend order for me-It was kind of like the Soup Natzi. But they had both been there and knew the ordering situation. At first I thought it was a little pricey, but taking into consideration its in New York, and it was HUGE, I got over that quickly. It was so good. I had an Onion Bagel with Scallion Cream cheese, Lox, tomato, onion and lettuce. It was so good, I was very impressed. I wish my city had something like this, but since then I have actually been looking into opening a shop similar to it in my town. I would recommend trying it out. Just be prepared to deal with a little New York attitude, but the return is well worth it!!!!!

Cons: Very small shop and we took our bagels outside to eat

When I read reviews about this place, I couldnt wait to go try it out. I read that the bagels were so "Fluffy" on the inside and "Crispy" on the out, I was excited. Never being to New York before, I couldnt wait to try out this "Delicious" bagel. It was small inside, but we found a space to sit down and eat. The people who work there are a little rude. If you have ever watched Seinfeld, you will know who the Soup Nasi is. Thats how I felt when I was there. They expect you to know what it is you are ordering, and they expect you to move along quick. Never being in there before, I wasnt sure what I exactly wanted. They also talk so fast, and are a little edgy if you dont answer them right away. I saw the bin of bagels they had there, but they didnt look as fresh as the past reviews have been raving about on here. They looked as though there was a heat lamp keeping them warm. They were a little nicer to me, since I am female, But they were really rude to my Boyfriend. I got a turkey sandwich. It was ok. I mean it wasnt Bad, but maybe my expectations were a little high. I just didnt think it was Wonderful. For a turkey sandwich, a small diet coke, locks and cream cheese and a small coffee, came up to $19. A little pricey for me. When I go back to New York, I might try out a few other places, just to see the difference. I thought the quality of the bagel was about just as good as bagels here, in California. Overall from what I said, I would possible go back in the future.

I go here all the time for the best half of a bagel I can find anywhere in the city. Let me explain: The bagels are usually hot out of the oven, tasty, and they have better than average spreads and such. However, the bagel itself only has a topping on the top. Whether you order, poppy, sesame, or everything, technically it's half a plain bagel (the bottom), and half a flavored bagel (the top).

Don't get me wrong. The bagels are GOOD. But everyone seems to know and rave about this place and it's totally nothing special. Being from Long Island where there are a lot of great bagel places may be altering my perception, but the bagels are only slightly better than average. Good bagels, but nothing to rave about and nothing special.

The bagels are fabulous. We live in New Jersey and whenever we go into New York City we buy bagels to eat hot and then to freeze (they told me that if I call in the order, they'd bring it out to the car so I wouldn't have to look for parking). They are the best bagels I've had. Their whitefish salad is excellent--all whitefish with a little mayo. The bagels are also reasonably priced for NYC.

Growing up in NY, I have eaten my share of bagels. Ess-A-Bagel (either by Sty-town or midtown) is by far the best bagel in NY. The bagels always warm, soft on the inside, crispy on the outside and enormous in size. They have a huge selection of different cream cheeses and all of their salads are great. The lox is always fresh too. Highly recommended to all!

This is the best place for bagels. I personally think that Ess-a beats H&H. You get bagels that are crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. If you get them hot, they are just divine. They also sell a variety of cream cheeses, etc., but the highlight is the bagels. I will go out of my way for an Ess-a bagel! They also have a branch up in midtown.

PROS: Delicious bagels!
CONS: You'll wish you could have one everyday

Our first time in New York and we had to try a "New York Bagel". We were not dissappointed in the least bit by this little gem. The bagel was huge. They were served warm and had a soft fluffy interior. The workers there also absolutely load the bagel with cream cheese (gets a little messy). I loved it and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Unremarkable is the best word to describe Ess-a, which is unfortunate given all its accolades. The bagels themselves are simply average, certainly bested in consistency and taste by not only others in NYC (Pick-a-bagel by the 77th subway for one), but by *gasp* others in assorted suburbs upstate. Sure, they have some good toppings that combine with the decent bagels for a tasty breakfast or lunch, but simply considering the quality and taste of the bagels themselves, you can do far better.

The service might be a little ruff around the edges sometimes (just think "No soup for you!"), but the bagels are amazing! I live in the neighborhood and I'm a devoted customer. Kudos to the whitefish, lox, and veggie cream cheese. The rice pudding is also a winner.

There isn't a better bagke ANYWHERE! I can't see how anyone could even compare another bagel like H&H, which are all so average. These are gigantic and full of flavor. The Whitefish salad is the best anywhere as well. Make sure you wave hello to Dave behind the counter - he even feeds the poor when they come in hungry.

My wife and I went here based upon favorable reviews from Zagat and Frommers. THEY WERE WRONG!!! This place has the worst customer service I have ever seen. We waited in line for 10 minutes and then when we got to the counter, we told them what we wanted but they skipped over us with no regard. No personality, no tact. Got tired of asking for help and walked out. Absolutely the WORST experience you could ever have. Will never go back here again and STRONGLY recommend you don't waste your time either!! Never tasted the food so I can't tell you if it is good or bad, but who wants to do business with someone that does't want your business?

Unreal, thats all i have to say about this place. The bagels far out match and as much of a pun as it is, they truly outweigh the competition in bagel size, flavor, and freshness.

Best Sesame Bagel I have ever had, with plenty of cream cheese and friendly staff. What more could you want?

The most delicious and biggest bagels in town. Guests always demand that we get Ess-A-Bagel when they're in town.
