JP's Bagel Express
Much like pizza, there's an endless and ongoing NY vs. NJ bagel debate. The bagels at JP’s score a point for New Jersey, and are everything you want a bagel to be: big, pillowy, and always come out super fast. There will likely be a line out the door if you come on a late weekend morning, but it moves quickly enough that you’ll be in and out with a BEC or a lightly toasted whole wheat everything before you know it. If you need a recipe for a perfect lazy morning, start the day by grabbing a bagel or deli sandwich at JP’s, then take it over to the waterfront on Pier A for a low-hassle picnic.
