  My first knish! So filling and tasty! This quaint shop has been there for over 113 years! Go in and give it a try, and if your an old hand at knishes, go anyway!

  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.

  The knish was most excellent. So many options what can you say. Me it's basic potato with mustard.
Only issue we had was place is still had full Covid in place. Sitting area was blocked off and it was February.
Kid allowed us to eat there in the front, it was cold outside.  Will do again but in warmer weather.
