Nice fresh bagel shop

I really enjoyed my breakfast here. Bagels were very fresh and the Taylor Ham was delicious. The fresh squeezed OJ was a bit expensive but worth it.

The most wonderful fresh baked bagels didn't even know you had so many choices! Abundance of fillings to choose from too. Better than that it was on the corner of our street we were staying at 😍

We went to Wonder Bagels after reading all of the reviews. The bagels were delicious. The bagels were crusty on the outside and were perfectly soft/chewy on the inside. They didn't skimp on the cream cheese either. . They layered it on! Definitely expect a wait but it wasn't too terrible (especially for a Saturday morning). However due to the... More

I love Wonder Bagel, but I wouldn't stand in line for a bagel in the NYC area if my life depended on it. So get off Jersey Ave and head to the one on Sip or Bergen. They are much bigger and cleaner, with plentiful seating and an expanded, even more delicious menu.

This is a great place to grab a bagel breakfast sandwich on the run. You can call ahead of time and they have it ready for you when you arrive. Always hot and warm bagels available. A must try.

Wonder Bagels newest location (Bergen Ave and Fairmount in the McGinley Square area very close to the St. Peter's University campus) has a breakfast that even I (a big guy with a big appetite) find it a challenge to finish. And it's delicious. Only caution is each of the 5 locations opens as early as 5am but also close early.... More

Good service, and egg sandwiches seemed to be made fresh instead of cooked in a microwave. The bagels were just average, though.

Ate breakfast here, but if I ever go back to Jersey City and smell those bagels, I will eat there any time I can. Fresh, delicious food. Wait in line, it's worth it!!

So we finally got bagels from them one Sunday and it was a disappointment. They were so huge and doughy and flavorless. I'm not sure what the hype is all about unless it's just because it's the only bagel place in that area.

Yes, there will be a line and there's a reason! This is where you find the best bagels in JC. Gourmet spreads are great and the prices are very reasonable for all breakfast items. The line can be intimidating but be patient and enjoy!!
