  • Zabar's is an institution and still remains an excellent place to shop for grocery essentials as well as amazing prepared foods and a huge variety of smoked fish, baked goods, excellent coffee, and everything in between. It's usually busy but always manageable with good numbered systems for counter service. Some items may be pricey but great deals abound, especially in their huge cheese selection and in their prepared foods.
  • I'm all about Zabar's when I'm in New York City! Enjoy a cuppa Joe before you grab a basket. I've found so many interesting and useful gadgets every time I stop by. I go crazy for all the spices, olives and cheese. Don't skip out on going downstairs as well ☺
  • This place deserves the name Emporium. more than a supermarket. Such a selection of great food. A friend introduced me to these nice cakes from there.
  • Rude smucks. Hellishly overpriced ripoff joint that caters to rich putz clients. You'll NEVER FIND NORMAL FOOD HERE. Tourists beware, a big, old name just means they been around longer to figure out how to rip ya off better.
  • The food and cooking appliances are very good and very cheap. The mayhem and lines are a bit of a turnoff. Best before 11 AM..
