“Pastrami egg bagel Outstanding- Whitefish, not so much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2016 via mobile

My husband had a egg bagel with eggs and pastrami ($5.99) and he really enjoyed it. He said the pastrami was definitely better than Eppes Essen. I ordered whitefish on a toasted everything bagel. The bagel was excellent. Sadly, the whitefish was disappointingly sweet. Really sweet.... and, see pic, $7.95.
We will try somewhere else before coming back .... mainly because of the service. Other than the very nice / helpful man at the 'by the lb' counter, it seemed like the goal somehow was to make us feel unworthy or out of place. Can't describe it well but it was not comfortable.

“Delicious deli, bombastic bagels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2016 via mobile

As a foreigner to these shores I have to say probably the best hot pastrami I have ever had (this includes the great traditional Katz recipe stuff in Manhattan ) I am a sucker for delicious pastrami and these guys to it very well. I can't speak to the rest of their produce as I have never ventured further than sesame bagel filled with hot pastrami mustard Mayo and pickle - and I don't think there is any need to - well done Livingston!!!!

“Good deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2016

Personally I don't love the bagels from here, but their appetizing is very good. If you can get them to thinly cut the nova, the quality is excellent. The whitefish salad is really good as well.

“Great bagel and deli.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2016

This is a great place to go for a quick bite of quality deli and bagel combos. Service is fast and efficient. You order from the line and wait for your food to be prepared before you take it to a table. The dining area is small and utilitarian. It can get messy when kids are on vacation (off school hours). Great for take-out. Food is always fresh and of good quality.
