    This is the place for those who wants to sit and eat their bagels and other brunch food. Prices are about 40% more than if you buy it the bakery. They don’t have as many variety of fish and cream cheese though. Very packed during weekends during brunch time. I find their pate and pickled onion go very well with a typical bagel and lox. Staffs are attentive. Free still and sparkling water!

    I am 29 and 7 days old... that’s 10599 days old. I have had breakfast probably 89% of those days. In all the days of my life, the Lower Sunny Side is the best breakfast I have ever had. The latke is untouchable. Crispy fried to perfection, thinly sliced gooey onion. Combined with runny sunny side egg, and perfectly smoked salmon... 100. Had the cinnamon French Toast for dessert, and fresh squeezed OJ as well.

    Wow. Just wow. Really clean, did not have to wait that long, but it was a week day, mind you. Sat at the bar. Diana is one of a kind. Fastest worker - Russ and daughters are lucky to have her. Good menu, good quality. Excellent service from Diana. We appreciated Russ and daughters even more after visiting Katz's deli - what a contrast, what a difference. It is not cheap, but it is worth it.

    Jewish soul food! Nice menu with unique offerings. Don't see what you want? Just ask and they'll prepare it. Good, fast service. Old school deli-style luncheonette atmosphere. No rush, stay and enjoy your coffee.

    What can you say? Imagine the original, but in restaurant form and you have this place. Everything is good here, and it will more than satisfy your smoked fish and egg cravings. The Lower East Benedict is clutch. You have to get some latkes one way or another. Herring are great. Bagels are expertly toasted. Be prepared to wait basically any time you go.. it's a popular place!

    Loved this place. It seems to go back in time. Bagels are a must pick. The sodas are good as well, especially ginger and the other one with cucumber. The service is nice and caring. Only thing, prepare yourself as you might need to wait in line a bit.

    If you want to the best bagels and lox and caviar experience you really need to come to this place. They do it right and it’s always amazing. The drinks are also great and the staff is on point.

    A NEW YORK CITY CLASSIC! Best lox and bagel board, potato pancakes. Vintage diner setting with servers wearing butcher shop uniform, jazz music flowing. You’d think Woody Allen is sitting in the room! A must place to visit for your out of Towner friends or the locals. If you are in a hurry, go to their deli to get a bagel and lox to go. Go early for brunch as they don’t take reservations

    Fantastic upscale shtetl cuisine. The pickled herring is not to be missed. The schmaltz herring is salty AF. The spiced herring (with cinnamon) sounds awful on paper but is in fact supremely delicious. The matzo is toasted with butter and served with chopped liver. The dill-infused vodka made my Bloody Mary one of the best I’ve had. Service was great, too. Run don’t walk!

    Wait was long but absolutely worth it. Very delicious deli in a great location for lunch after exploring the Tenement Museum. The Classic smoked salmon platter was awesome, and they had the fattest, crispiest latkes I've ever had. I was excited to get an egg cream, which is not really a thing down south where I live, and it was delicious. I wish I could live here and eat all the delicious food!!!
