When we talk about the Kossar’s family, we’re talking about generations.
On any given day you’ll find dozens of Kossar’s patrons (first name basis only of course) starting their day the same way they have for years, by stopping by the store on Grand Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan to purchase our world-famous bagels and bialys.
In some cases, they are the third generation of Kossar’s devotees, the grandchildren of some of our first customers.
This enthusiasm and affection for our brand and products is contagious. And for good reason. Our brick oven-baked bialys and kettle-boiled bagels are as relevant now as they were 80 years ago when we opened our first store.
Excellence transcends time.
Our customers have spoken and there is no denying… Kossar’s traditional handmade bagels, bialys, challah bread, Schmears®, and fish are the best and absolute most delicious in New York’s Lower East Side.
