this morning I went with my husband and my daughter to breakfast and they did not let me in for wearing a stroller, the girl said they do not have space for a small and folded stroller

Not exactly surprising, as management is not exactly friendly and inviting. You would think they would figure this out being in a pedestrian area and catering to families with younger children, but I guess they don't value that type of business.

Do you make a Lox bagel?

Absolutely. They make a great lox bagel with cream cheese. Many great options other than that, too.

Cozy and simple with a touch of sophistication both in decor and food. Friendly staff and easy, accessible location. If you drive however, be prepared to run around a bit for parking depending on what day and time you visit.

The food was amazing, but there was no air conditioning and we were served warm water. We also had to wait a pretty long time for the food to come out, while we sat there sweating. I would happily pay the price again if we were actually comfortable in the restaurent but it was so hot in there that we probably won’t be coming back.

Best breakfast in all of Edmonton or dare I say all of Alberta? This place is worth the price no doubt at all! They make the absolute best coffees and even better bagels. You have to try the eggs Benedict! The pictures speak for themselves.

Meh! Although the food tastes fine, we waited an incredibly long time for our meal. When it was served, all our food was cold. My soft poached egg was not soft, it may have hardened up by either the wait time or by the coolness of them when served. Either way at $26 for eggs benny's it should have been perfection. I think the restaurant may have had its day, but that day has gone.

This place is wonderful. It's a family business and the service is so friendly. I stopped in for breakfast on a Monday morning around 10am. Promptly recieved the house coffee I ordered and had a nice chat with the gentleman running the front. My breakfast came quickly, I ordered the eggs benedict with black forest ham and it was delicious. The potatoes, the fruit, my eggs were cooked perfectly. I used to frequent this restaurant when I lived in Edmonton and it's been years since I've been here but I think it's actually just gotten better.I'm so sad to see all the negative comments and ranting about this hot lemon water incident. I can only encourage you to visit this place yourself and make up your own mind rather than rating this place based on a social media rant. This is a long standing Edmonton family run restaurant and a small business that deserves honest reviews. I wish them all the best and can't wait to go back.

Waited briefly for a table. Then placed in the back corner which was cramped.Then waited a long time to get our order taken, one of our party had to get up to get them to take our order. Then we waited for drink refills. Then we waited for food.I refilled my own water multiple times.Food was great. Bagels were underwhelming the potatoes were superb. Fruit on the side was great.When I went to pay there was no discount on the meals. The waitress thought the service was good.I paid full price. That's what their level of service is. I expect a lot more for $25+ a plate for breakfast.We will not return.

The food is always amazing! A hidden gem in Edmonton. The prices are a bit more than your typical brunch but it's because the quality far surpasses! My go to is French toast with the challal bread.

Came on Tuesday, delicious food and amazing personable service. The truffle benedict is totally worth it. The French toast is truly remarkable and not to mention the perfect hand cut and seasoned hashbrowns. The server was an older gentleman, who clearly loved where he worked. Definitely will return and is 100% worth the prices they charge. Dont come here if you dont want to spend money. If you want subpar/terrible food at a reasonable price and 15 minute plates: go to Dennys. These people care about their work and food. Worth waiting for and worth every penny. I will certainly return.

Pricey cafe that needs more labour to make it whole. Nice conversion from a house, loads of wood decor and furniture and outside seating. Excellent plating. Too bad only one server running around for everything - seating, ordering, paying. And not cheap - $20-26 for bagel or benny dishes. No baby strollers, no wheelchair access.

Walked in around 9:30 on a Saturday morning, wanting to order a breakfast sandwich to go. We were told the kitchen was too busy to accommodate us and that we should try coming back on a Tuesday when they’re a little quieter...I was dumb founded. What difference does it make if I’m eating there or taking it to go? We support local businesses all the way - but if this is the sort of service you’re offering, those chain restaurants are more than willing to accommodate. We won’t bother going back to New York Bagel Cafe.

We went to this restaurant on a whim for a light snack. Its a cute little place. We were seated outside. My husband and I both ordered abagel platter which comes with pickles, potatoes salad, and fresh veggies. At first I thought the price was a bit high but when it came out,It was absolutely delicious. You could taste the quality in the ingredients. Will have to come back to try all the other meals!

It was okay, but the price and quality of the food do not match. For breakfast, expect to pay close to $25 or more per person for food and coffee, but the fare isn't special and the food is mostly generic breakfast fare. I expect good or above average quality ingredients and proper spiced and flavored food given the price. The bagels were okay, for a place that has bagel in it's name it was disappointing. They seemed to be store bought, not in house made. The water we were provided was tepid tap water and have a very distinct odd taste from particulates, for the prices of the dishes, they can at least provide filtered water. The fruit was the highlight of our dishes, they were quite fresh and properly ripe but the rest of the breakfast wasn't very special. Coffee was also pretty good.Overall, disappointing experience, take your money elsewhere.

Atmosphere and service really made this place. The food options were outstanding. Price for my food was a little more than expected as with the wait time. However, the atmosphere made a comfortable place to chat and let time pass as you waited for the meal. The meal was good and I liked the fact it was all local. Service was very attentive and pleasant. A great place for an experience but not for everyones budget if you want to make a regular appearance. Give it a try for sure. Its a nice get away in the city even if its just once.

Went on a rainy day and it was quiet. I didn't wait very long for the food and the portions were generous. The prices are pretty up there, so definitely more of a once in a blue moon kind of place. Our waitress was polite but brisk. The atmosphere is warm and cozy. Their music selection was quirky, but awesome! Check it out if you want to treat yourself, but definitely best to go during their less active hours!

Eggs Benedict is my favorite food on earth and I've had it all over the world and this is by far the best I've ever had. I've read hate over a charge for hot water and lemon which is basically the same as tea and lemons/labour aren't free. That whole argument is so stupid and I can't believe the sheep mentality of people. NYBC is amazing, the prices are clearly listed on the menu, and SO WORTH IT. Anyone with taste knows why they come here. Keep being amazing and ignore the haters you ROCK. Will keep coming back as long as I live!!

Brunch was filling and delicious- a real treat! Many bagel options to choose from (but no gluten free bagels). The hollandaise sauce was super yummy and the fruit arrangement with the classic breakfast puts the whole Cora's franchise to shame. On each table there are a variety of sweet, savory, and spicey additions (spreads, sauces etc).

You get what you pay for. Yes, it’s expensive, but the food is great. Our mains were incredible and our side included dragon fruit, blackberries, blood orange, gooseberries and pomegranates. If you want premade food and old cantaloupe, go to a cheaper place.
