Chewy and delicious, bagels abound all over the Garden State. But in West Orange, one bagel place won by a huge margin in our Readers' Choice poll this week.
Poppy's Bagels on Mount Pleasant Avenue was far and away residents' favorite bagel shop in the surrounding area.
During a busy morning rush, Jacob Geffner, a manager at Poppy's, said he was pleased with the honor.
"We love our customers and we try to show it," he said on why people come.
Poppy's churns out the usual bagel sandwich staples such as lox and tuna salad, but they also offer salads, pizza, wraps, hearty sandwiches, fish entrees, and chocolate chip cookies. It's possible to nosh at Poppy's for every meal.
