Bagelmania's bagels might be fine for someone who never lived in New York, for someone who never had bagels from a different bagel shop, or for someone who never had bagels that did not come from the freezer section in the grocery store, but Bagelmania's bagels are missing something. They are too heavy. It must be the water... They are not bad, don't get me wrong, but Bagelmania's bagels are just not like a New York bagel.
Sweet & Sassy Cupcakes serves and ships beautifully decorated but overpriced cupcakes. The cupcakes taste and texture is a little above average, but I found the icing so sweet it hurt my teeth!
Nucar-Pontiac-GMC takes care of 2 of our vehicles. They've done a fine job with warranty repairs and a few dings and dents that have occurred along the way. When they recommend additional work, we ask if it is essential or if it can wait, as we would anywhere else. We've been pleased with the sales and service at Nucar.
India Palace Indian Restaurant has a wonderful lunch buffet at a very reasonable price. The food is well prepared and tasty with a nice variety of dishes and the nan is made fresh for your table. Their full menu is full of great dishes as well. India Palace is not a large restaurant but their food is full of great taste.
Seasons Pizza is just ho-hum. Their crust is much too thick and soggy for my family's tastes. If someone else buys it I will eat it, but I'd rather get my pizza somewhere else.
La Casa Pasta serves the best, most authentic Italian food in the Newark area. La Casa Pasta is one of the few Italian restaurants where my husband willingly eats because they serve a wide variety of dishes beyond the typical pasta and red sauce seen in so many other Italian restaurants. La Casa Pasta's menu features dishes such as veal marsala, and it's done to perfection!
Twin Birches has everything a family could want in a vacation rental. A lovely cottage with a full kitchen, a sandy beach just outside the door, a barbecue pit near the cabin, and boat docks included! We have stayed at Twin Birches every summer for the last 14 years, gradually increasing our time from 1 week to 5 weeks. Twin Birches is our home away from home.
The Golden Stem is a fine place to pick up flowers on your way somewhere, but for delivery you may want to order from another florist, especially is the delivery date is a few weeks in the future. My husband twice ordered from them and the flowers were delivered on the wrong date. Golden Stem cannot be counted on to deliver on the right date.
Leon's Garden World may be a little out of the way for some folks, but their plants are worth the trip! Everything I have ever purchased from them has survived transplanting and has thrived in my garden--this includes the half-price stock during the mid-season sales. Leon's Garden World has a wonderful selection of the common plants but also some more unusual ones. Check them out, you won't be disappointed.
Dr. Dougherty removed both my children's wisdom teeth, all 4 teeth both times, and neither child had any pain, any swelling, any complications from the removal of these impacted teeth. Dr. Dougherty was excellent! And the results were excellent.
