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

  I had never had a knish before, so figured this NY institution was the best place to try it first. With nothing to compare it to, I thought it was pretty good! The potato could have used a little seasoning (of which there was none), but it was a substantial snack and the mushroom variety I had was a nice compliment to the base knish. If looking for a quick snack nearby, worth giving it a try!

  Really nice little knish bakery, tasty, cheap, and filling. The potato knish is a must. The sweet knish is nice too, super rich, the entire knish is filled with cheese.
I've also heard good things about the sweet potato knish, red cabbage, and mix veggies.
Kasha knish is blend but got a strong buckwheat flavor, which is a bit weird for my taste.
