  • Goldberg's Bagels. This bagel shop is one of three locations in the area and also was recently moved to a newer location with in Boulder Run. They make AMAZING bagels, breakfast sandwiches and deli options. The flagels (a flat bagel, literally) are to DIE for and if you don’t get in there before 11:00am during the weekends, there is close to no shot of getting your hands on one.
  • The Market Basket. A much smaller version of the full gourmet grocery and produce store is located on the Franklin Lakes side of town. It offers mostly ready-made options for customers to run in and grab a freshly made meal to go.
