Eggs, bagels & popular weekend brunch are the draws at this laid-back cafe serving 3 meals.- Google
"Best eggs benedict I have ever had, hands down."

We ate at New York Bagel Cafe this morning. I avoid writing a bad review at all costs, I have been a waitress for years and know what a bad review can do for somewhere. But in this rare case I feel it was completely deserved. The older waitress (I'm guessing possibly the owner?) was SO rude, which completely detracted from the delicious range of Eggs Benedicts on the menu. I dont mind waiting for my food, we waited 45 minutes, I have no problem with this at all, there is actually signs around the restaurant letting you know that 'good food takes time' (I agree). I do,however, mind bad service! When spending over $20 per breakfast I expect some level of proffessionalism from the staff. We 'waited to be seated' patiently for a good 10 minutes, again, this is completely acceptable if the restaurant is full, but the restaurant was only at 50% capacity. We were completely ignored - all attempts at eyecontact were dismissed, then, a group of 4 ladies walked in behind us, they were greeted and seated, we then went on being ignored... Eventually we got impatient and asked the older waitress if we could seat ourselves to which we received a very stern 'NO' and a look which made us feel very unwelcome. We were finally seated on one of the many empty tables, and served by a nicer, much younger waitress and waiter. We sipped on our extortionately priced $5 coffees with no offer of a refill. Food came out and it really was delicious, plenty of vegetarian benny options. This would be a regular place for us if the service wasn't so bad. I even heard other customers leaving and discussing how they would not be returning. It's a pity because this could be a great place. So in summary, excellent menu, excellent food, horrific service, overpriced. I regret giving this company my money, and resented giving any tip at all, unfortunatley I caved and tipped a small amount - just for the fact that the younger waiter and waitress were slightly better than the older "lady".

They are not that affordable and when you go with friends they won't let you pay separately if you are paying with plastic. They say that because of their prices being so low that's why they don't allow separate payments with cards per table. When the reality is their prices are not that low.

Amazing place, great food, peaceful atmosphere.... Little bit longer to wait for food, but I was enjoying every minute in the place. Strongly recommend for everyone.

What can I say, if your looking for great food, quick service and value don't go to New York Bagel Cafe. On the other hand if you hit your head in the morning and feel like paying $15.00 for a bagel, go to New York Bagel Cafe. If you want your food in a timely manner I suggest you show up one hour earlier, place your order, go for a walk on Whyte for 45 min and then come back and eat, maybe... I swear I thought they were waiting for the chickens to lay their eggs in the back. Make sure you head straight home after, you will get the squirts after eating here, I know I did! The one nice thing about this place is there is free parking right in front, so you can save your change because a cup of ice to accompany the tap water they serve in the milky looking glasses is $1.00 extra ! Must be that fancy free range organic ice from France. Long story short, go dumpster diving for some scraps next time you think of going to the Bagel, it will cost less and taste better.

Don't go to this place. They treat you like a shit. Let the story to be short. At the beginning they told us that we will be seated in 30 minutes. We were ok with it and waited; however, it took them 1 hour and 15 minutes to find a place for 4 people... That's a bad estimate, isnt it? Then it was 20 minutes waiting before order was taken and about 25-30 minutes to get food. it is breakfast!, which doesnt take to much time to cook. Next issue was, i asked for extra piece of watermelon for kid and waitress told me at first that they don't do custom orders... I told i will pay for this and she was going to check.. Surprise! They dont have it any more. Even after this they served it to the people around me. For any other question, she was telling that owner doesnt allow them ... Owner doesnt allow .... Dear owner, you are out of my business end point. Again, DON'T GO TO THIS PLACE. There are many others good once around.

Honestly, if I could give this place negative stars I would. Both times I've been there have been less than great. Ridiculously long waits (seriously how long does it take to toast a bagel and put it on a plate with some cream cheese??), overpriced, mediocre food, and poor service mean that I won't be returning any time soon. Don't waste your time or money here, there are far better brunch spots on whyte and downtown.

Last Sunday we were seated right away, ordered within 5 minutes or so, then waited just about 65 minutes for our food. At the 35 minute mark -- long after I should've said something -- a server told us they had forgotten to punch in our order, apologized, and said it had been "put on a rush". Twenty minutes later I flagged her down and was curtly told it would be 4 minutes, but it took almost 15 minutes more. They were very busy, true, but this was just not excusable. Food not bad, large portions, but pricey. Overall, not worth the wait and I won't be going back unless there is a serious improvement in timeliness of service, and better food for the price.

It is a nice place. I went there for lunch. It was not crowded. The lady is friendly and made her best to serve us. The food was quite good and the menu is different from the other place, so that is a big +. I would recommend it to my friends!
