I would have given this place 5 stars but was so turned off by the disgusting, greasy, dirty condiment bottles and salt and pepper on the table (and all of the tables -- I checked). Easy fix. I will come back again and eat here...More

The menu is solid and full of all your breakfast favorites. All the food was very well made and tasty. Little pricey ($12 for an omelette with veggies). Recommend you go for sure if in the area.

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

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.

Their breakfast menu (runs through lunch, I think) is quite good, built on the bagel (although other stuff is there too) -- sausage, egg and cheese are my favorite.

I just can't get over the fact that this place is named "Bagels by Us", but they don't make the bagels! Maybe they meant "Bagels by U.S." because supposedly they are from NYC. The bagels themselves are pretty good, and the breakfast sandwiches are good....More

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.
