When its crowded, especially on weekend mornings, the wait can be quite long, but the bagels are really great. They make them the right way, boiling them first before sending them to the oven. The selection is very good - though they used to have a peanut butter bagel that was absolutely amazing (sadly no longer made) - and includes bialys and a few cookies and cakelets as well. They also have The Best Tuna Salad, excellent cream cheeses, and other savory things. I've been coming here for more than 10 years and I've never been disappointed in the bagels or accompaniments. That said, I only order to take out, unassembled. Nothing better than fresh bagels and cream cheese on a slow weekend morning (tuna fish, too!). They have a breakfast and lunch sandwich menu, including the standard NJ pork roll and cheese, and make coffee and other drinks. I've just never bought any of those things here. The bagels are definitely what to come here for, and they are better than any I have ever had anywhere in NYC.

Great spot for custom breakfast bagel sandwiches. Girls are nice and service is fast. For a Sunday get there before 8:10 or wait in line!

The bagels are fantastic, but you can grow old waiting in line, especially on a weekend morning. There are only a few counter people so when someone has a huge grill order or multiple bagels and toppings, it can take a really long time. Would be great if they had an express line for if you're just getting coffee and a bag of bagels. Worth the wait, but there's a lot they could do to improve the time it takes to get served.

Hi - if you are looking for a traditional bagel, these are great. They are hard and crunchy on the outside, yet soft and delicious on the inside. The store has a lot of variety of bagels (maybe about 15 kinds) and also makes breakfast and lunch sandwiches.

Whenever we travel to the area to visit family and friends, we make sure that we have Bagels 4U at least once. Service can be a bit slow, but the bagels and bagel sandwiches are great, and they have a good selection of bagel varieties and cream cheeses. One variety that we haven't seen elsewhere, but that is delicious is the Cinnamon Burst bagel.
