  Cheese knish with blueberries is what the angels brought from from Heaven as a teaser.

  Been going here for many years and the quality is still superb. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that their knishes have shrunk in recent times. It's a real pet peeve when any establishment does this. Other than that, I still love them.

I just have 1 special request - Please bring them back to their original size even if you have to charge slightly more. It's understandable during these challenging economic times.

  I can't claim that knishes are part of my heritage or that I had one before I came to New York but I've been here 20 years and I've had many. The knishes that I had from this shop were some of the best that I've had. I recently enjoyed the potato knish and the mushroom knish. Both were excellent. Tasty, sustaining, meatless, portable, affordable and great for the cold weather. The history with these, I wonder if it's like the original fast food from the old country. But what do I know? Cheap and delicious!
