I remember the original place in Irvington on Chancellor Ave. lbcn14 -- are you saying that same family owns the Bagels 4 U stores in all of their locations and Sonny's? I agree that Bagels 4 U are real bagels, but I detected a difference in texture from Sonny's. I like Sonny's bagels as much or more than those from the late lamented H&H in NYC.
From what I understand, Sonny's and Bagels 4 U are owned by two different members (sons?) of the family that owned Watson's on Chancellor Ave. neither quite measure up to Watson's, but they are better than the average bagel.
Oh,that I could still be a kid and go with my father to pick up bagels at Watsons or danish and onion boards at Wiglers's/Sonny Amster's.
Please don't refer to the baked sugar paste from "Bagel Chateau" as a "bagel." It's absolutely inedible.
I like Zaro's in NYPS but they are expensive. $14.60 for a baker's dozen.
We used to get Bagels 4U in Springfield but found their quality had gone down and their lack of selection could annoy.
Sonny's has a remarkable sale midday sometime, bagels half-price and we scoop these whenever we can (their Everything bagels are very nice). But living in Maplewood this isn't often.
If you want a real bagel, then Sonny's or Bagels 4 U is the way to go. If you want something that's akin to getting a croissant at Burger King, well, there's the Bagel Chateau and most of the other places that sell blueberry "bagels." If the bagel isn't boiled and baked, it's not a bagel, but something else...
Hot Bagels Abroad. No contest IMO.
Bagels for U, Goldbergs, or that place in Union on Morris Ave. All great authentic bagels. Bagel Chateaux in Maplewood, definitely not. Sorry.
