The staff is very knowledgeable when it comes to handling GF items. The GF bagel they offer is very small and thin, but I do always say it’s great to at least have options. I got a BEC on an everything GF bagel. The everything bagel was way too salty for my liking, and the sandwich was not very filling at all. It is great for the convenience factor, but not for if you need something to keep you full.

Avoid the Middletown one on Rt 35. I called ahead of time to make sure that it would be safe for me and my son to eat and was told different knife and foil was used. I went in ordered and the woman was cutting our bagels and then another woman next to her started cutting a regular bagel inches from ours. I said something and the other woman who I believe is her daughter since she said mom gave me major attitude that well everything is cut with same knife same toaster. I said I called and was informed different knife and foil. She shrugged her shoulders and said ugh ok fine I guess we can start over. Then the woman actually cutting the bagel said you have to tell me if that’s how you want it. At that point I walked out no longer wanting to take a chance with them. I still don’t get that. If I say gluten free I have celiac that’s me telling you. If you aren’t equipped to handle it please let me know. I’d rather know before I eat than eat it and get sick.

I walked in assuming that I wasn't going ti be able to eat anything other than chips and was so happy to see that they had gluten free. It makes being from NJ easier knowing I can still have bagels.

Amazing gluten free bagels; plain, everything, and sesame! They always get a clean knife, use a clean surface, and will use a separate container of cream cheese to avoid cross contamination from the regular bagels. Also, they use all boars head lunch meats and squeeze condiments so deli sandwiches are safe as well.
