Uncle Harry’s New York Bagelry & Coffeehouse
A Tasty History
At Uncle Harry’s, we are dedicated to continuing our tradition of fresh bagels and great service. For over 25 years, our staff have helped people start their day with a smile. All of our locations have comfortable seating and free Wi-Fi, letting you soak in the rich aroma of coffee while you meet with friends and families.
Dear Family & Friends:
Many of you still ask whether we’re a national chain; we just chuckle and reply, “No … we’re just your average ‘mom & pop’ next door.” In fact, as many of you may know already, we named Uncle Harry’s after Rena’s late grandfather, “Harry” as his American cronies referred to him. He came to New York from the ol’ country, as a classic Old World gentleman. A hardworking, entrepreneurial immigrant who had a perseverance and passion for producing only the highest quality products in his business. (He was known as the “Walnut King”). He was honest & humble and had an unsurpassable love for his family and community.
This same commitment-to the community, quality and to people-is at the heart of Uncle Harry’s New York Bagelry.
Uncle Harry’s spirit and passion can be seen in everything we do … from ALWAYS demanding sesame seeds from Sri Lanka, Maine blueberries, Australian poppy seeds to fresh chopped onions.
There are generous amounts of everything in our bagels and schmears to give the ultimate flavor explosion when you bite into an Uncle Harry’s bagel.
Uncle Harry’s allows us one of the greatest rewards we as humans can experience … helping our neighbors within our community. Through Uncle Harry’s “Operation Doughnation” we are able to donate and/or help raise money for local schools, help out the local chapters of the American Red Cross, Leukemia Society, United Way and the like, as well as clean up graffiti, paint homes, plant trees & of course donating our bagels to many, many charities.
Looking back, all we can say is we’ve been very blessed. We want to thank all of you for your patience as we’ve gone through our “growing pains.” And we want you to know how much we appreciate your continued, constructive advice and loyalty … YOU have made Uncle Harry’s the success it is today!
