Bagels are a favorite of New Jerseyans. We have the "best" bagels anywhere on this planet.

When I visit friends in the south such as in Florida and North Carolina, they always ask me to bring bagels. They used to live in New Jersey and they know the best is right here in New Jersey.

Recently we had our Shawn & Sue Poll for "best bagels" and the winner of our Annual Best Bagels in Ocean County was New York Water Bagel in Toms River. The Top 5 winners in Ocean County are New York Water Bagel, Silver Bay Bagel, JT's, Bagels & Beyond, and Barons. I have to say JT's in Lacey is delicious. We're there a lot, especially on weekends and the line is out the door.
