The Quintessential New York Bagel

Getting a consensus from New Yorkers on where to find the best New York bites is truly an impossible mission—and probably the only one Tom Cruise can’t solve by jumping out of a plane. But most New Yorkers will tell you that some of the best bagels in the city are coming out of the ovens at Ess-a-Bagel, a family-owned bakery that’s been around for over 35 years (which is 150 in New York restaurant years). Cut and rolled by hand, it’s Ess-a’s chewy, crusty bagels that keep regulars coming back week after week (some since the day they opened) and visitors satisfied as they look for a true taste of New York.

Hands down, the ess-ential NY bagel is at Ess-a-Bagel or, as it’s referred to in some neighborhoods, His Hole-y-ness the Doughy Lama.

We're not the only ones who love them!

This is our third order from Ess-a-Bagel. The bagels arrived wrapped very well and are fresh. We love these bagels. Our friends think we're crazy for ordering them online but we don't have a bagel shop in our town and the Ess-a-Bagels are the best. We ordered the lox cream cheese and as always, it's very good. We really enjoy these gigantic bagels.

Thank you for helping me to make my best friend's Hanukkah a little brighter and a lot more delicious. She recently moved with her family to Atlanta from NYC, and bagels from Ess-a-Bagel are a really welcome taste of home for these holiday mornings. Goldbelly always comes through to help me spread some TLC when it's needed, you are the best!

The bagels were fresh, the lox was melt in your mouth delicious, and with the scallion cream cheese- it was a box of New York heaven in Ohio!

This was amazing! Ordering was quick and easy and it didn't have to be weeks in advance. Information was provided every step of the way. Shipping was on time and delivery was perfect. Best of all, the expectant Mom was surprised and so very happy to have real Ess-a-baglels in California! THANK YOU!!

I was super happy with how quickly my order was shipped. We ordered NYC bagels and cream cheese. The bagels were very tightly wrapped and the cream cheese was packed with an icepack. I fully understand that we were paying more for the bagels but it was well worth it to get my Mom some authentic NYC bagels and cream cheese.

The bagels from Ess-a-Bagel were delicious! They were packed tightly in plastic film and ready for short term freezer storage. We had some fresh the day they arrived and then some that had been frozen with no change in flavor or texture.

The bagels, cream cheese, and salmon exceeded my expectations for freshness, taste, and texture. It was almost as if I picked up my order from Ess-a-Bagel personally.

The bagels from Ess-a-Bagel were wrapped very well. None of them were crushed. Besides being fresh they were huge. The tubs of cream cheese were wrapped on top of an ice pack. Packed very well for shipping.

We love Essa Bagels! A 10! I use to bring them home from visiting NYC but now that you can order from Goldbely it is much more convenient. And we are glad to see all flavors of bagels are now being offered to ship. So thank you Essa and Goldbely!
