Best Bakery - THREE-WAY TIE
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! That's the adjective that best describes the sensory overload you experience when you walk into one of these bakeries, voted best by readers. Fresh-baked breads, cookies and cakes, pastries and every imaginable treat you can think of can be found at Mazur's, Sugarflake and B&W. The Spiekermann family, led by "Joe the Baker," has satisfied the sweet tooth for more than 75 years at Lyndhurst's own Mazur's Bakery. Sugarflake, also a family business, is well known for its whimsical cookie creations, stunning wedding cakes and specialty cakes for kids. And B&W, renowned for its sublime crumb cake, also makes a mean banana cream pie.
