Best Bagel in Murray Hill Area

Does anyone know where to get a good bagel between 42nd and 34th street on the East Side? I've tried Daniel's and it's a little too hard. I love H & H, but it's way too far uptown. Does anyone know where they sell their bagels to that might be a bit closer? Thanks for your suggestions in advance.

  1. Might be a little far south for you, but I've heard good things about The Bagelry (3rd ave. near 30th). For a year and a half, I've gone to a famiily run place on third b/c 33rd and 33nd. Don't know the name, but it has a big "O" sign on it. Something keeps me going back for the same plain bagel and cream cheese.....

      bagelry is horrible and severely overpriced. Try Daniels again, it truly is the best in the area.

        Agreed, not a fan of the Bagelry.

    2. Ess-a-Bagel worth the extra 13 blocks-21st and 1st

          Affirmative K on Ess-A-Bagel. They have another location at 831 3rd Ave (51 Street).
