I would love to wake up to this view any morning.
Put a good cup of coffee in one hand and a bagel in the other and I’m in heaven. Oh, wait… I’m missing the essential part of New York breakfast.
So on our first morning in New York, we wrapped up in our warm coats and walked to Sadelle’s bakery and restaurant on West Broadway, in the heart of SoHo. The streets were quiet this early in the morning and filled with golden light.
Sadelle’s is famous for one of New York’s greatest food traditions – the bagel and lox.
The interior is chic and elegant: high ceilings, exposed brick walls, turquoise blue accents and white marble counters decked with flowers. In the centre of the dining room is a glass-enclosed bakery where the bagels in all sorts of flavours are made. And throughout the day, every time a patch is ready, you hear a shout coming from the bakery “hot bagels!” Think fancier version and modern twist of the classic Jewish deli.
Hot, hefty and chewy hand-rolled bagels are served with a three-tiered tower that’s piled high with sliced-to-order salmon, capers, cucumber, tomatoes and onions. All the good stuff.
The first bite to this refreshing, creamy and tangy delight definitely woke up my taste buds.
Add an order of sticky buns and you will not regret the decision.
Rich and buttery brioche dough glazed in sticky brown sugar. So moreish and incredibly satisfying.

While we’ve not eaten here for a meal besides breakfast, the lunch and dinner menus look equally appealing and I’m certain that a meal later in the day would be every bit as good as their breakfast. Every night, Sadelle’s transforms from a bakery into a candlelit brasserie.
The deli counter also makes it a great choice for takeouts; bread, chocolate babka and pastries, chopped salads, and other New York classics. Don’t leave without trying the sticky buns.
