"My vote is for Dunellen Bagel. The BEST!" - H. Parkinson
After another awesome experience at Dunellen Bagel, the friend I was with (who has never read my Yelp reviews), looked at me and said "yknow, as good as the food is here, it just isn't worth putting up with the shitty customer service. I'm done coming here."
And there ya have it. Thanks for the memories, DB. I'll miss your bagels, but I wont miss your miserable, unprofessional, rude employees.
14 reviews of Dunellen Bagel "My family loves the bagels
If you want a real bagel - not just "round bread" - Dunellen Bagel has it. I know of no better or more authentic bagels to be found anywhere. My favorites here are bacon, egg, and cheese on a sesame, poppy seed, or onion bagel and the bacon cheeseburger on a bagel. I didn't take off for appearances, because it's not a sit-down place. You order food in an always-busy queue and take it with you (or eat outside at self-serve, patio tables in the summer). The bagels are special, and the place always seems to be packed when it's open (breakfast and lunch), especially on weekends, when they also have a couple of baked goods, and people have more leisure to go to their favorite places.

The best breakfast around!This shop is a little dark and perhaps dingy as well as tucked back in the corner of a small strip mall (so parking can be tight on weekends), but Dunellen Bagel makes the best bagels around. The pumpernickel bagel is outstanding, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Other bagel shops might have larger menus (and shops)...Good bagels, bad bagel sandwiches... They make a good bagel and you can practically watch them do it, but -in terms of their delivery- never fail to disappoint me. It doesn't matter if you prefer a buttered or cream cheese bagel, an egg sandwich, or deli meats or spreads on your bagel, whatever you order at Dunellen Bagels will be arguably the sloppiest sandwich you've ever had. It won't be sliced in half (unless you ask) and ingredients will be hanging out of the sandwich until they eventually get pushed out, leaving you to eat the bagel and insides separately
