Consistently Delicious! – I love to visit Murrays for my bagel fix. They are often crowded on the weekends but they are efficient and accurate with their service. Don't expect to sit down inside though, there are only a few tables and they are always full.
Try the olive cream cheese or the lox spread on a whole wheat everything bagel. Yum!
Their coffee is quite good too!
Please expand the shop! – A select few places in New York make real, true bagels as they should be and this is one of them. The bagel is crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside. It goes well with anything you like on it. Personally, I'm a sucker for a warm sesame bagel with lots of butter and the ones I've had here were to die for!!! These bagels do not need to be toasted, that's only for pseudo and day-old bagels as any true New Yorker will tell you.
My only complaint, the place is way too small. If it's busy then getting a seat is next to impossible. I wish they would expand as I don't live nearby and often would prefer to eat in.
best olive cream cheese in the city! they use black olives which are so much better than green...and the everything bagel is amazing!! makes me not want to do Atkins!!
Homey deli with homemade bagels that rank among the city's best. – The Scene
With its exposed-brick walls and soda bottle-lined wooden shelves, this family-run shop feels like something out of 1950s Brooklyn. Bins of fresh bagels rest behind the counter, and there are always a few customers sitting at one of the few tables inside or on one of two wooden benches out front.
The soft bagels--made fresh on-site--are good; if you go in the morning, especially on weekends, you'll stand a chance of getting a warm one. The selection is standard--onion, poppy, cinnamon-raisin, pumpernickel--and the array of smoked fish is fairly impressive. The scruffy-looking post-collegiate types behind the counter also make a good deli sandwich. To drink, grab something from Murray's stock of fruit drinks and iced teas.
Not that impressive – I think Murray's Bagel has good texture, the inside is soft and the outside is chewy. However, their garlic bagels and everything bagels are often covered with burnt and bitter garlic bits that pretty much destroy the whole flavor. I do like their cream cheese, not the best I had, but most flavors tasted ok.
Bagelicious – Having been a long time Ess-a-Bagel fan, I was surpised to find myself return time and time again to Murray's. The Bagels have an outstanding taste with a terrific texture, both chewy yet not gummy. Overall, the best bagel in town. . . now if they could only get a toaster.
decent but not thrilling – I love Ess-a-bagel, but I live on the west side, so I often go to Murray's for convenience. Their bagels are fine, but they are a little overcooked, and not really a 'special' bagel experience. Better than the bagel shop on the corner, but not worth going out of your way for, in my opinion. Also a little more expensive than your average bagel place.
WOW! – Fabulous bagel, lox and creamcheese! Tops for a bagel place...
Toasters needed – Good spreads, great beverage selections and bagels really tasty. THE BIG COMPLAINT: NO TOASTING AVAILABLE. I complete the total bagel experience by having it lightly toasted. Murray won't do it. Won't or Can't is not in the service directory. But who says Murray's is anything about service. So close, but not good enough.
Yum Yum Yum – This place is fast paced, your in and out with money still left in the pocket. Exellent price/the best bagels and service in the city! Definately 10's in all areas!
