“A Great Bagel (and I'm From NY!)”
Review of Wonder Bagels

Wonder Bagels
Ranked #1 of 16 Bakeries in Jersey City
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 3, 2012

New Yorkers have a code: If you leave the city, the bagel-making capitol of the world, don't bother eating bagels. The exception to that rule is Wonder Bagel. These tender, chewy giants are baked right in front of you in the back and are a classic NY-style bagel. They're like a marriage between Essa's humongous hole-free rounds and H&H's smaller, denser bagels. In other words, they're perfect.
I also love that Wonder has tofu vegetable cream cheese, which goes great on any of their classic flavors. Coffee's great--even their decaf is delish!
Very small store; limited seating inside and outside, though not impossible. Lines on weekends move quickly. Service is super-fast and given with a smile. Locals swear by it, and transplanted New Yorkers miss home a little less.

Bagels are good and expect a line on the weekends as it's full of locals. Very few seats, so expect to take away your food. I've had better bagels in the city - but this is a great local spot and much easier to get to.

Good bagels made fresh. Would only go if your in the area. Not worth going out of the way for. Place was better before they sold out to chain. Service is always friendly though. Mostly locals go here.

I love bagels. Don't get me wrong - NYC has some of the best bagels in the world. But Wonder Bagels just does it better. Always fresh with the right combination of chew and softness - everything a great bagel is supposed to be. Gets very busy weekend mornings but service is fast and friendly. Really good coffee. And their pork roll (Taylor ham) bagel sammiches? You haven't lived until you've had one.

A longer walk from hotel but easy to find on a main st --- worth the walk if you are a walker
