Profile

A New York institution since 1972, H&H boils and bakes its bagels so often that you’re likely to get yours oven-warm, day or night. Plastic bins filled with the yeasty, chewy-crusted rolls line the wall behind the counter; fresh batches are unceremoniously dumped in between orders. H&H’s legendary freshness has inspired near-cultish devotion by UWS regulars and fans as far afield as Morocco, Taiwan, and Australia, to whom H&H ships overnight. To-go customers, take note: The shop doesn’t toast, shmear, or butter—it’s bagel business only, nothing extra. Modern inroads are evident in whole-wheat and (dubious) blueberry bagels, but tradition holds fast with garlic, pumpernickel, and mouth-puckering salt bagels, along with crusty, onion- and poppy-flecked bialys.

Extra

H&H also makes mini-bagels by special order; two dozen is the minimum quantity.
