Very fresh NY style bagels, plain or toasted, cream cheese or not, sandwich or not. I have only used them for takeout.

This friendly neighborhood spot is part bagel bakery and part diner. We come back again and again for the tasty bagels and many regulars pick up bagel sandwiches to go (the BLT is straightforward and usually perfect). The breakfast and lunch diner is fine, but...More

On a weekend away, my wife and I wanted a nice breakfast in a local diner. This was perfect. Food was fantastic, service was exceptional. Plenty of parking along Mass Ave. Price was very reasonable. No complaints.

While I enjoy the bagels, other offerings leave a lot to be desired. Although it tries, Bagels by Us is not a diner. The breakfasts are expensive for the quality and quantify served.

This place has a lot of crummy reviews, but I have to say, they make the best reuben ever. Tons of sweet, tender corned beef, layered - that's right, layered - with sauerkraut and thousand island. A slice of swiss completes the sandwich, but in...More
