I would have to put my money on Grandma's Bagels for the best bagels in Monmouth county. Always fresh, and always good, Grandmas Bagels are probably the best bagels I've ever tasted. The sandwiches are superb as well. The price is not absurd, and the bagels are worth it. If you've tried Dunkin Donuts bagels, forget them! Go to Grandma's!
