  A truly old world spot to take a trip back in time. They also have excellent knishes, many varieties. Maybe due to Covid they no longer allow in store dining but they are worth the take out experience even if you have to reheat them when you get home.

  Old world knishes since 1910. Best in the city. Soft like a pillow, same recipe since the day they opened.

  The blueberry cheese knish was so good and was generously filled. We are going to keep coming back here and wonder why we only tried it now.

Update: Went back on a Sunday and then soon after I got sick. Hygiene issues in this place.
