RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- It’s impossible to live here and not have a bagel opinion. The New York area, as everyone knows, is the bagel capital of the world. And yes, it’s worth waiting in line on a Sunday morning to get one of these doughy wonders fresh out of the oven. Toasting, as a bagel purist knows, is not necessary when you buy the very best.

We asked for your favorites and now have five contestants in the running. Each is being profiled this week as part of our ongoing DVlicious contest. Here’s the lowdown on one who made the cut.
What Makes Them Bagelicious: It’s more than a sense of familiarity that brings customers back time and time again to Bagelicious in Ridgewood over the last three plus decades; it’s the good food and the exceptional service, they say. Oh, yes, and its “everything” bagel generously mortared with veggie cream cheese and the “Californian,” a plain bagel smeared with cream cheese, sprouts, avocado, and red onions, don’t hurt either.
Crazy Flavors: Nothing outrageous but among the options you'll find is blueberry and rainbow.
Reminder: The contest ends Monday, April 25 at 5 p.m. You can vote multiple times, albeit once per day.
