DANBURY, Conn. -- Starting the bagel baking at 3 a.m. makes a difference apparently.
Stew Leonard's, with locations in Danbury and Norwalk, is the winner of our DVlicious "Best Bagels in Fairfield County" contest. The family-run grocery store won the hearts (and stomachs) of Daily Voice readers with 55 percent of the vote.
Stew Leonard’s bagels are kettle boiled and hearth baked for a crispy on the outside/soft and chewy on the inside product. And yes, the bakery team arrives at 3 a.m. daily to fire up the ovens and get the doughy wonders going and -- pardon the pun -- on a roll. Click HERE for earlier Daily Voice story.
Stew Leonard's is at 99 Federal Rd, Danbury, 203-790-8030; 100 Westport Ave., Norwalk, 203-847-7214, www.stewleonards.com/.
