    I was skeptical after reading these reviews -- but when visiting New York I decided to give it a try. First the order taker was knowledgeable -- hand delivered my order to the manager. They toasted and prepared my bagel in a separate area. Maybe it was all the lox cream cheese on it -- but I though that it was very tasty-- like a real bagel! Agreed with other reviews -- $3 extra for gluten free is pretty steep!

    I used to get a bagel here once in a blue moon when the urge really hit. Not only do they have really shitty GF bagels (crumbly, previously-frozen), but they charge an extra $2, which is crazy for a bagel that they then cut, spread, and toast with the same utensil/appliances used on the other bagels. They also carry some GF baked sweets, but I thinks a $4 cookie is a rip off with other good options in the neighborhood.

    I appreciate that they at least have gluten free bagels, but I wish they'd find a different brand. The kind they have do not toast well/at all and are more roll like than bagel, in terms of texture. But at least it's something!

    I'm from New York and have celiac. I was really eager to try this place and I have mixed feelings. It's a nice little bagel place in the East Village with a younger crowd and a lot of homemade options, but the gluten free bagels aren't so great, nor are they celiac trained. I didn't get sick, and I'd say it's worth it to eat a ny bagel, though they weren't what I expected. If you have celiac I'd stay away.

    Gluten free bagels available with many gorgeous cream cheese spreads.. May be fine for gluten intolerant people. However, even the counter girl warned me that when busy they can be careless. I took a chance since I was desperate to feel like I was having something remotely close to a NY bagel. The counter lady tried very hard to write concise directions to the staff to make sure my bagel was kept away from the other glutenous items. I got sick instantly. I don't recommend if you are celiac like me. Otherwise go for it!

    Bagel was pretty good. But they don't seem to be trained on cross contamination. Same toaster and utensils used.

    I asked for my gluten-free bagel toasted (as recommended by the person taking my order) and it wasn't. It may have been better toasted but mine was dry and with a bad consistency - even with lots of cream cheese and veggies. I asked them to use a clean knife but I found stray poppyseeds and other bits from other bagels on mine so cross-contamination may be an issue. I will stick to my frozen gluten free bagels at home - tastier and MUCH cheaper. Such a disappointment.
