JERSEY SHORE BAGELS & DELI has the best bagels I have ever tasted. Not only is the food AMAZING (my favorite is the chicken salad & BEC!!) but the owner hooks it up!! They portions are NOT small & the sandwiches are stuffed. Once you try these bagels you will not want to eat anywhere else!

The Sausage King only pairs his sausage with the most delicious, hand rolled, kettle boiled bagel! Thats why i only go to the Bagel Exchange!

Whether its the chicken or the egg, it's always better on a Bagel Exchange bagel!

We started using the Bagel Exchange to cater our parent teacher events at school and their bagels and veggie cream cheese are top notch. Theyve also been extremely generous in helping our cheer leading teams raise money for their travel. Good people.

Pretty ridiculous posts...funny...but ridiculous. Anyway, I've lived here for 20 plus years and I've tried just about every breakfast place around. They might be new to the area but Paul and his guys at the Bagel Exchange are doing it the right way! Patty and I eat there every Friday morning. The bagels and sandwiches are delicious and the place is immaculate. Much continued success!

I wonder how much Dirk Diegler is getting paid by the exchange? He clearly doesn't know anything about bagels!
jack smith April 21, 2012 at 04:03 AM
Manhattan Bagels- small, expensive bagels but IMO great quality. Pretty much all the food there is really good. Love their egg sandwiches. Bagel Exchange- 2nd runner up. Good sized bagels. Pretty good quality and taste. Downside- Eagles fans wearing, Eagles jerseys on Sundays during football season. Terriganis and All Star- Very similar sub-par quality bagels. All Star has a leg up in the service department though. Seemed to take forever to get my food at Terrigani on several occasions. Has been a while since my last visit, so maybe things have changed. Have not been to Jersey Shore or NY Bagel. It seems Jersey Shore is a popular spot for Brick Patch readers so I will have to give them a try.
