Bagelicious! Great bagel hard on outside and soft in the middle. Their cream cheese is also the best. I live in freehold now and go all the way for a good beagle.

ROUND DOUGH . can't say enough about the taste, texture, the SIZE . Wouldnt even want to know how many calories are in one, but who cares. The service is great. I love getting a smile and a big HI How are you or good morning when I walk in the door. Without the little things that make ROUND DOUGH special it would just be any other bagel shop in town. The owner, the girls behind the counter , thats what makes going there so nice. No matter how you want it, they will create it with a smile. Wheres Round Dough II going to be ???????????? Take these bagels out of the area and everyone wants to know how to get them in their town . Do we see ROUND DOUGH II popping up all over the state? Good Luck John and Staff.

Since Round dough with a hole won on patch I decided to head over and give it a shot. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT !! $ 2.97 for a freakin plain bagel w/ regular creem cheese ? What a rip off. I could have traveled another mile down the road to bagel exchange in brick and got the same thing for $2. Plus, my bagel was ready to go and nobody would ring me up. I guess only one person can work the register here and he was doing something out in the front. First and last time there.
unsatisfied July 16, 2012 at 07:05 PM
EMR - I agree with you there
Tobias April 02, 2013 at 01:46 AM
That's right Round dough with a hole had the worse bagel since the last 2 years ,it's get hard in few hrs .it was never like that when the original owner still were there ,now we the person who rolled the bagels used to work for bagel delicious so go figure !
Tobias April 02, 2013 at 01:53 AM
Karen Monahan is the sister of the Round dough with a hole owner ( John Monahan the bipolar) of course she will stick up for his lousy dirty brother ! Owner is dirty as well as the bagels,never friendly to us .his mixer to mix dough has mole never been clean since the 2 Spanish guys from up north quit.
Tobias April 02, 2013 at 01:58 AM
I agree with EMR ,it's disgusting and filthy ,I hope you guys don't get food poison ,the ingredient on their bagels has been change to the worse ,including mold yeast,most of the flavor bagel only made off food coloring
Andrea April 02, 2013 at 02:06 AM
I used to work here for 6 months under John S management and yes very filthy and dirty beyond disgusting ,I am surprise the health department never closed them down! I would not recommend you guys eat the bagels and forget about the cream cheese ,one of my ex co worker were drunk and threw up in the mixer accidentally
Andrea April 02, 2013 at 02:14 AM
By the way people it's not Round dough with a hole ,Round dough with a hole does not exist is Point Pleasant it's BARON'S BAGEL by John Stoll call up 411 information , look up his tax I'd and his corp on the wall next to the coffee machine. I am surprised he doesn't get closed down by Round dough with a hole owner
