“If You Want A Good Inexpensive Breakfast.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

...this would be a really good place to stop.

Better On A Bagel is probably a minute or less from Route 46 & maybe 5-10 minutes from Interstate 80 (depending on which exit you come from). It's located next to a shopping complex which includes a Modells, Kohls & Fairway Supermarket.

There's not a lot of space to park in the front. Maybe a half dozen spots if that. On the side of the building there is additional parking, but not much.

The inside is a decent size. Has room to seat around 30-40 people at a time.

The service was very good. The guys behind the counter were friendly & there were regular patrons there that they acknowledged. Which is also a good thing.

When I worked in the area, our office would order breakfast from here quite often.

I happened to be in the area recently & decided to stop in for breakfast to go. Even though the name has bagels in it, they do carry more than just that. Their bagels are great though. With a variety to choose from.

On this trip I ordered a bacon, egg & cheese on an onion bagel. It was as good as I remembered. The eggs are fried with melted cheddar on top. The bacon had just the right crisp & texture (you get 2 strips). The bagel isn't nor was it toasted as some places do. It already has a nice light crispiness on the outside. Yet a moist inside. It was lightly salted & light on the ketchup (they ask how you'd like it). I paid less than 3 bucks for it too. AND it was very filling. Which you don't generally get that combo from your big chain places.

They also have an awesome variety of muffins.

Their lunch menu has a nice variety as well. From sandwiches & wraps served with fries for a nice price as well. They make a good tuna salad sandwich. Of course I always get mine on a bagel, but as mentioned, you can get it other ways.

So. If you're in the area & want a good inexpensive breakfast, be it a sandwich, muffin or a bagel. Check them out.
