Did you say, "There are few breakfast foods more universal than the bagel"? You've never tried to order a bagle in Waco Texas.

No, you're right, I can't say that I have. :)

You totally left a very important one out. JT's Bagel Hut in Lacey. Hands down the BEST bagels around. Best Bagels, best breakfast sandwiches, best coffeel etc... Try getting in there Saturday morning. The line is out the door and that's in the off season!

Agreed, JT's in Lacey is the best around…although Dolce in Barnegat has been a pleasant surprise. Best salt bagel (I think they use sea salt). Plus there is plenty of seating.

No question; Dolce Bagels! Not only are their bagels the best; their staff is unsurpassed for their friendly and efficient service! Thank you Dolce for coming to Barnegat!

I voted for Dolce. Not as good as this one place in Jackson, but still pretty good. I just wish they were a bit bigger.

Absolutely correct. There is no comparison. I, myself wondered why it wasn't included in the choices.

Not sure if bagels are cooked on premises.. ok at best.. bayshore bagels is better.

dolce bagel? more like day-old bagel... they treat thier pasteries like entamens and leave them there for weeks. bunch of old people on here voting. 197 votes is nothing. bayshore has more customers then that in the first hour on a saturday. id rather have elios frozen pizza then there crappy sauce and cheese pies

the bagels are cooked on the premises, and there is obviously a reason that those other bagel places are not included. I dont see Patch editors popping a squat for hours in any other places around here but Dolce. probably because of the lack of hospitality and oh, seating? Dolce is fantastic and has the best breakfast and lunch around. they are clean and friendly-remember customers names and personal preferences. you wont find anything like that for miles.
