The New York-style bagels here are based (more or less) on the recipes of the Ess-a-Bagel shop in New York. The ten flavors range from classics like rock salt, poppy seed and onion to original creations like rice-flour bagels and seven-grain honey-fig. Like genuine New York bagels, the ones produced here are properly dense and chewy.

Bagels are Y230-280 each, and the shop also sells simple bagel sandwiches (flavored cream cheese, egg salad, smoked salmon) to take out at lunchtime. They may close early if they sell out. They also have a small eat-in space on the third floor with very limited hours - Wednesday through Friday from 7:30am to 3pm.

Minato-ku, Shirokane 1-15-22.
