Dont Eat There – I went there hoping to get a tuna melt and cup of soup. The tuna melt was microwaved (?) The soup was so salty I could not eat it. When I approached the manager about the soup ( it was really not edible) he was very rude saying " Thats how we make it, what do you want me to do?"

some of the best bagels in the city – These are probably the best bagels in the city. I drive in from central Pennsylvania once a month and I always come here for their bagels. Service is great if you have to wait a moment big deal. Enjoy the moment and relax. The staff has always been terrific. Very accomodating. Prices are very reasonable. This is NYC not hillbilly heaven.

How do they stay in business? – Decided to finally try this place today, as it always seems to be crowded so I figured it must be good, right? Well, it's probably crowded because all of those people have been waiting for 25 minutes for an effing bagel!

When I walked in, I asked if they took a debit card. The unsmiling woman behind the counter stoically shook her head yes. I get in line and wait 10 minutes for someone to even look at me, let alone take my order. Mind you - there's at least 6 people milling around behind the counter. Sure, they're pleasant enough, but smiling at me doesn't do me much good if you're not going to take my order.

While I waited, I couldn't help but notice that the egg salad looked like it was growing something, the paninis looked days old, and the spinach "kanish" (sic) looked like something you'd find on the walls of a cave. I considered walking out, but stupidly didn't.

I finally get to order my simple onion bagel with plain cream cheese. After another ten minutes of waiting, I considered walking out for the second time. I decided to stick it out for reasons I'll never know. FINALLY, my bagel comes along and I hand the woman my card.

"$5 minimum." (my order was $4.75, which by the way, is outrageous).

I said, "Well, I don't have any cash. You didn't say that when I asked you." She simply takes the bag with the bagel, puts it behind the counter, and looks away to the next customer. WTF?

I walked out, and I'll never step foot in that place again.

FYI - You can get TWO delicious bagels with gournet cream cheese, a drink, AND a smile, for under $6 at Corbet and Conley an Ave and a half away. Well worth the walk.

Never again!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Prices are normal, bagels are normal, service is horrible. Manager made me feel unwelcomed, and even taunted me. I had no idea that he was the manager until I asked for the manager. From the woman at the cash register to the workers in the back - they're were all rude. I pay for their products, and shouldn't have to feel that I'm begging them for something. I'll never go back there again. My company usually caters breakfast from there, but that's going to stop also.

loveee it – I go to class a few blocks away, and I go to pick-a-bagel a few times a week. It's cheap, the workers are fun, and the food is the best in the area. It's great for a place to grab a quick bite to eat.

Horrible attitudes,they take forever to deliver – Besides the fact that everything is overpriced, prices also change depending on who's working. For 2 bagels and 2 coffees I waited an hour and I live a few blocks away. The mans attitude on the phone was horrible...the food is good but I think the place is overrated.

SIMPLY THE BEST – GET OVER IT PEOPLE.!!!!!!

PRICES ARE NOT SO BAD .

SERVICE? WHO SAID YOU BUY A BAGEL AND HAVE TO MAKE A FRIEND? IT'S NOT ON THEIR MENU !!!!

COME , ORDER , PAY , AND ENJOY THE QUALITY OF THE BEST BAGEL IN TOWN.

EVERYTHING THEY SERVE IS TOP QUALITY A TO Z.

I HAVE BEEN GOING TO THEM FOR MANY YEARS AND NEVER HAD A PROBLEM.

IT'S NEW YORK CITY, EVERYTHING HERE IS MORE EXPANSIVE.

YOU PAY FOR A STUDIO APT' $2500 AND YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT YOUR BAGEL?

THEY GIVE YOU A GREAT VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY AND ALWAYS A FRESH PRODUCT.

SO THEY ARE NOT TOO NICE , SO WHAT? { TO ME THEY ARE !}

An unassuming chain purveyor of super-sized bagels. – In Short
Pick a Bagel's decor is cafeteria-like, with a drop ceiling, fluorescent lighting and faux-wood tables. A small, friendly team of attendants fields orders from a steady stream of local office workers. The huge bagels' fluffy, chewy interiors are marked by occasional large bubbles. Accoutrements consist of the usual assortment of spreads, salads and smoked fish. The eatery also doles out reliable soups, salads and wraps.

Incredible Texture! – I'm surprised to hear anyone complain about Pick a Bagel on Third. In one week, I ate a bagel from each of the top 20 ranked bagelries (according to citysearch) to find the REAL champion of New York. H & H is the one everyone raves about, but Pick a Bagel on Third definitely had the best texture and the best size.

The only downfall is that the bagels at Pick a Bagel were cold when I walked in and H & H's were piping hot. Still, I could tell Pick a Bagel was the champ! I'll return to their store and H & H any time I'm in New York. I was not impressed with Tal, Daniel's, Murray's, Ess-a, or any of the rest of them.
