Profile: New York Bagel, Cafe and Deli


There's nothing quite like an original!  And, when it comes to bagels there's nothing that can compare to a New York bagel. But what makes New York bagels different than other bagels? Ask any New Yorker and they will tell you that's it's the nutient rich water of the Hudson River. Truth or local-lore  one thing is certain, Picasso-esque artesan bagels just don't make the grade!
New York Bagel Cafe and Deli (NYB) of Lititz is NOT owned by any native New Yorker but three local brothers with a vision. Since March 20th of this year  Eric and Ben Shirk along with Adam Montpetit have been serving up all the best that New York has to offer -  Hand rolled, preservative-free bagels and bialys from Brooklyn. Thats right, an original!

But NYB is more than bagels. Serving only the best as noted earlier, NYB also offers real fruit smoothies, cafe blended coffees and  deserts. Let's not forget, they are a deli as well. Deli sandwiches like a traditional pastrami on rye or ruebens are just a few sandwiches in  an extensive selection of lunchtime favorites. All sandwiches are made to order and are accompaniesd by a side of salad choices, bagel chips or for an additional charge all you can eat hand cut french fries.

Open seven days a week from 6am-4pm, breakfast sandwiches are the number one attraction. While most breakfast sandwiches are served on bagels (obviously), you may choose from 10 bread choices, 6 cheese selections. sausage, bacon, ham or any other meat of your choice. The number one breakfast item by far is the "loaded lox" - an everything bagel with lox (smoked salmon), cream cheese, tomato and onions. Not a salmon fan? Try a blueberry bagel with strawberry cream cheese. All cream cheese flavors are made in-house and fresh daily. With 11 varieties to choose from you will never run out of possibilities. The best part is that you can partake of breakfast all day long. In fact, if you want a roast beef sandwich at 7am, the "bagel brothers" will prepare that too.

The moment you enter NYB you know that this is not your standard run of the mill bagel joint.. Environmentally-friendly bamboo flooring, and warm muted yellow and red tones accented with hand-blown glass lighting  create for a relaxing dining experience. Greeted by a "welcoming committee" of enthusiastic employees you get the feeling that bagels may be the business but you are more than a customer. You are family!
