This week we asked our loyal readers to tell us where their favorite bagels in the area were -- and they did!
in Pyanoe Plaza took the cake... or dough.
This poll had a great response with 84 total votes, of which our winning bagelry took home exactly half, or 42 votes.
in Bradley Beach was the runner-up with 22 votes, while in Manasquan finished right behind them in third place with 17 votes.
And while they finished in last place, an honorable mention should go to the Belmar landmark of Freedman's Bakery.
Let your favorite bagel shop know why you picked them by clicking on their link and rating their fine establishment. You can also write them a sparkling review -- this editor is sure they'll appreciate it.
Thanks for making this week's Readers' Choice a smashing success!

The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.
