Best Bagel and Coffee – Midtown West, New York


Bagel and Coffee is like living the New York dream…

Since arriving in New York all I wanted do was to sink my teeth into the best bagel. What better a place to go to than the self acclaimed Best Bagel and Coffee on 225 W, 35th street New York. This bagel shop is walking distance to the Empire State building, perfect spot for tourists like us to get a quick bite before the setting off on our sight seeing journey.

Usually I am highly suspicious of places that proclaim themselves as the best, but this bagel shop in my opinion can continue to call itself the ‘BEST’. 

We arrived at the Best Bagel and Coffee shop on a Monday afternoon and the place was packed with people from all walks of life. Tourists, office goers, mums with kids and the likes. Any place that can be packed in the middle of the afternoon on a work day is definitely doing something right. For the whole time we were there the crowd grew from strength to strength which is another sign of good food!

Finally it was our turn to order, with all the available choice I was just so confused. As always my eyes were bigger than my stomach but thankfully my brain took over, preventing me from ordering everything. 

There is an assortment of bagels and spreads to choose from. The lox (brined salmon) and cream cheese with chives bagel is a classic combination. However my husband and I were in no mood of fish! 

I ordered the everything bagel which is a bagel baked with sesame seeds, garlic and herbs. The filling was a classic cream cheese filling and to make it slightly healthy I asked for some fresh lettuce too. My husband ordered the breakfast bagel, a plain sesame seed bagel with creamy scrambled eggs and lots of bacon as fillings. Watching him eat that, felt like I was watching the man vs food tv show.

Neither of us had any coffee, but if the bagels were anything to go by the coffee should be pretty good too. After our bagel craving was successfully satisfied we were off to see the beautiful views of New York city from the Empire State Building.

LSD recommends Best Bagel and Coffee if you are in New York or plan on visiting.
