Bagels in New Jersey

I chechked the past thread, and all the info I could find on NJ bagels was at least 2 yrs old, and nowhere near me. So....If anyone knows where I can find good bagels (not ones that taste like a hard roll) in Montclair, Verona, West Caldwell, or the Morristown area, PLEASE tell me! Thanks.
In Englewood, on the corner of Hudson Street and the train tracks around Dean Drive: fantastic bagels. Crisp outside, not too dense inside. True-tasting pumpernickel, loads of plump raisins in the cinn. raisin. A few stores down from the Roman Inn, where you can try the #11 hero, or a great slice of pizza.
Does this mean that you don't like the little bagel place on Bellevue Avenue in Montclair across from St James Church, or just that you haven't tried it. I think they are pretty good.
I'm a brooklynite living in Northern Jersey for 17 years and there is only one good bagel place. Avoid at all costs this mini-chain called "g&a bagels" -- they truly suck for those of us who know what a real bagel is. My life revolved around bagels and great food while i was growing up and i remember the 6 cent ones we would buy all steamy and hot...
the only place to go is:
KC's bagel express on route 23 heading south in Pompton Plains, NJ. Great variety, incredible bagels.
hope this helps!
