This is a little window parallel to the above-ground 6 train on Westchester Avenue in Pelham Bay, and you’re here for some fantastic, chewy bagels with light and airy cream cheese. Empire Bagels is open from 5am to noon every day, and they only serve bagels, coffee, juice, and a few pastries. Come early - if you show up later than 11am, they might be out of your favorite bagel varieties.
