This restaurant makes the best bagels and bialys around. I love their brownies too. And you can get fantastic sandwiches of tuna salad, corned beef, pastrami, etc. Excellent!

I used to live in the western suburbs of Chicago and would regularly drive to Skokie just to "make a Kaufman's run". Haven't found a better bagel/deli/sandwich place on the planet that even comes close! THANK YOU, KAUFMAN'S!!! You are the best for everything!
