Start your review of Dunellen Bagel.

I'm originally from Queens, NY and getting great, hot bagels was a part of growing up. They say you only miss things once you don't have them and truer words were never spoken. Moving to Dunellen in the mid '80's I miss my fresh, hot bagels available 24 hours. Dunellen Bagel has been around for a long time and make a pretty decent bagel. Wish the bagels were a bit thicker-hard to hold a good schmear-but two other bagel joints in the area have closed up, so they must be doing something right. They are not cheap at over $10/dozen, but they at least do give you a 'Baker's Dozen' (13). They sometimes advertise coupons locally giving you four extra with each dozen. The owners are friendly and there's few better aromas than fresh bagels being made. My advice-support your local bagel store! Before long, the only bagels you'll be able to buy will be be fished out of a lucite bin with thongs at the supermarket. Dunellen Bagel still makes them fresh-right in front of you, Go buy a dozen today.

"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

There are a ton of bagel shops out there, and I have tried many of them, but none can even compare to Dunellen Bagel. I can't explain it but trust me, you won't get a better bagel anywhere. The breakfast sandwiches are great and they have a large variety of bagels to choose from. On the weekends the line can...

I've been coming to Dunellen Bagel since I was a kid and always make sure to stop in when I'm back home visiting. They're bagels are delicious and you can never go wrong with one of their sandwiches. I'm not a huge coffee drinker so I'm not sure what they're coffee is like. The service is always good, the guys who own it are really nice. Definitely stop by for breakfast if you're in the neighborhood or on the way to the train station.

"My vote goes hands down to Dunellen Bagel. Maybe right away i had some serious bias to this place because its what I grew up on, but when i left NJ and went to college in Nebraska I found myself wanting and thinking about Dunellen Bagel before i got off the plane when i came home on breaks. I have now been back home in NJ for 4 years and i have been to many different bagel stores trying to find a better bagel. I've had a few other bagels that where OK but I don't think its only about the bagel. I have not found a place that has a comparable pork roll, egg and cheese sandwich to Dunellen Bagel. So where their bagels might be great, in my mind they take the ship with the complete sandwich!" - John Schleppenbach
