Thanks to some asshole (who should have stayed in the sterile suburbs to begin with) that poor cat is now homeless or got dumped at a shelter.
I hope you find mouse poop in your food.

Good move going with the plain as the toasted garlic and your digital rectal exams were not helping that lap dog.


Yes it was touch and go - who knew poodles were allergic to latex.

Is it though? It reinforces my belief that the opinions expressed here for the most part do not coincide with reality.

Was there for lunch - hot pastrami w/cheese & mustard. So big that I could eat only half. Will have the rest for lunch tomorrow.

I find that interesting indeed.

The people whom I've taken to wonder bagels and loved bagels(this is the crucial bit) always seem to rave about it and some of these people are old school nj/ny folks who know what a good bagel is.

At times I think the bagels could be cooked longer, with such high volume I just don't expect it to be perfect every single time but it's usually a pretty good rate for me regardless. I try not going when everyone else is going.

Now here's a tip for the bagel freaks. If you goto the legal grounds coffeeshop, they use wonder bagels and with the way they prepare their fixings it always seems to come out better imo. Might have to do with the fact that there is no line out the door and that the bagel is being cooked a 2nd time around.

I just came back from Wonder Bagels on Sip for first time this summer. French Toast Bagel with butter and jelly is out of this world. The bagel with cream cheese, lox, capers etc is a good value at $7.75.

They said the location on Central ave is in the works but was a little cagey on the exact details. Other locations also possibly in the planning stages!

Yay, bagels in the Heights that's something other than Dunkin Donuts.

I imagine they're taking over the old Central Bagels spot? Seems like that would be the easiest to pick up and go from.

Ahh I was going to call you out on “the Heights near the PS” because I thought PS = Path Station. I thought you were trying to reignite the brutal turf wars from years gone by. (the Israeli–Palestinian turf wars are nothing compared to the ones that took place in JC)

But then I saw this….

That Wonder Bagels is in Marion near the Marion Gardens projects /(soon to be JCPD HQ) not Journal Square. Watch out a few of the Marion Boys are still kicking even though their walkers may get in the way of a good beat down. They never did get along with people from Greenville. (lol)


PS – the WB at Danforth is always crowded with people from CV, SH, city workers, and rt 440 commuters. Ingeniou$ location. As usual I need to bring up the best JC bagel joint of all times. The long gone bagel factory on Westside Avenue at Duncan. I can still see the “HOT BAGELS” sign flashing in my mind right now. Funny they had two types of bagels plain salted and unsalted. Wow how times have changed.

I guess that explains South House, its always packed with mediocre, expensive, and greasy bar food.

True. But, also keep in mind the sheep mentality. I wonder how many people line up outside WB in DTJC because they may think it is the cool thing to do. Plus, I'm sure some people just go out of habit. Me, I swing by every now and then. Decent bagel. Nothing to more, nothing less. Price keeps going up, though.

That's what's perplexing- it's the only halfway decent bagel store in the neighborhood so there's a line but the bagels are totally mediocre. Why has no one taken advantage of the dire need for a good bagel place? I can assure you no one is waiting in line because of quality- it's lack of other options.

The downtown location's bagel quality has really gone down. The texture is different and it's gone from hit or miss to just always bad whenever I get one from there. Why can't downtown get a decent bagel place??

Actually I did, its a possibility that one may close if he does not find another location downtown that's larger at a fair price.

It was just a matter of time, by the looks of the crowds on JC Fridays, the farmer's market, Live at the Lumber Yard and other areas of the Heights establishments I think this business will have enough business to sustain itself.
