Is this the best place for bagels in Toms River, NJ, you said “yes”

Bagels are a New Jersey favorite. We have the “best” bagels anywhere on this planet.

When I visit friends down south, like in Florida and North Carolina, they always ask me to bring bagels. They lived in New Jersey and they know the best is here in New Jersey.

When it comes to New Jersey and our bagels, the egg bagel and the everything bagel are the most popular. Cream cheese is the most popular filling and flavored cream cheese.
