“Disappointing bagel!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2016

Hadn't been in Livingston for 25 years and on a recent trip stopped at Livingston Bagel for breakfast. The bagel was really not good. How can you not have a great bagel in north jersey?! It was dry and didn't have the chew of a good bagel. I swear I had a better bagel this morning from Dunkin' Donuts. I also didn't like the cream cheese. It was liquidy and thin. Next time? Seyour's Deli.

“Great Bagels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2016 via mobile

I always considered Livingston Bagel the best bagels I had. I haven't been here for 20+ years. I was surprised how it grew from when I worked there. I know that the Snyder's no longer own the business, but I guess it's the same recipe that Sol used. Enjoy!

“Pastrami egg bagel Outstanding- Whitefish, not so much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2016 via mobile

My husband had a egg bagel with eggs and pastrami ($5.99) and he really enjoyed it. He said the pastrami was definitely better than Eppes Essen. I ordered whitefish on a toasted everything bagel. The bagel was excellent. Sadly, the whitefish was disappointingly sweet. Really sweet.... and, see pic, $7.95.
We will try somewhere else before coming back .... mainly because of the service. Other than the very nice / helpful man at the 'by the lb' counter, it seemed like the goal somehow was to make us feel unworthy or out of place. Can't describe it well but it was not comfortable.

“Delicious deli, bombastic bagels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2016 via mobile

As a foreigner to these shores I have to say probably the best hot pastrami I have ever had (this includes the great traditional Katz recipe stuff in Manhattan ) I am a sucker for delicious pastrami and these guys to it very well. I can't speak to the rest of their produce as I have never ventured further than sesame bagel filled with hot pastrami mustard Mayo and pickle - and I don't think there is any need to - well done Livingston!!!!
