BEST OF THE BEST 2022

We love this time of year, and not just because we are smack dab in the middle of summer. Rather, this is when we like to celebrate all that South Jersey has to offer in our annual Best of the Best roundup. From the finest food and drinks, standout retail shops, pampering services and places to enjoy with the family, this list is full of stellar options. And because we wouldn’t our readers to be left out on the fun, we have included their choices as well. Let this be your guide to everything that is great about this place we call home.

FOOD

Cupcakes | Cupcake Wish in Medford

Cupcake Wish is not only known for their unique flavors (including orange poppy cream cheese, banana split and strawberry mango), they have also built their reputation on custom orders, exceptional quality and small-town service.

Water Ice | Primo’s in Cherry Hill and Westmont

Open all year long, Primo Water Ice takes no responsibility for brain freeze. They do, however, take responsibility for unique water ice flavors that are made fresh daily at their two area locations. You’re bound to see us there enjoying a cup of piña colada or maybe chocolate covered strawberry.

Brownies | Magical Sweet Shop in Voorhees

AMedicalSpa_728x90_Feb2024


There is definitely some sweet sorcery behind the dreamy treats this bakery, chocolate shop and certified kosher kitchen churns out, and their rich, fudgy brownies are no exception. With cases and cases of decadent desserts to choose from, it’s hard to pick just one—so go ahead and treat yourself to that best-of-both-worlds s’mores brownie.

Breakfast Sandwiches | Waller’s Deli in Tabernacle
Whether you want a sandwich for breakfast or an entire breakfast in one sandwich, this Tabernacle staple has something to satisfy every craving. The chicken and waffle burrito is a particular favorite, so stuffed with perfectly breaded chicken breast, warm tater tots, fluffy waffles and a drizzle of maple syrup that it’s hard to resist ordering one for lunch, too.

Cocktails | The Union House in Burlington City 
Classic cocktails get an inspired twist at this restaurant nestled in a renovated fire station. The specialty drinks range from elevated mainstays, like a mule with a cranberry kick, to signature offerings, like the smooth but smoky Bourbon Blackberry Smash or the Gin & Jam, which is served with a spoonful of mixed-berry preserves and a sprig of rosemary. (609) 531-6077 | UnionHouseBurlington.com

Coffeehouse | Jersey Java and Tea in Haddonfield
This mom-and-pop shop serves up lovingly brewed and locally sourced coffee drinks of all kinds and, thanks to its Quiche & Tell Bakery, some irresistible homemade pastries, too. The only thing that complements its hot beverages better than those divine and all-natural baked goods, though, is the chill vibe that makes Jersey Java so welcomingly cozy.

Diner | Vincentown Diner in Southampton
There’s a reason why Diners, Dine-Ins & Dives raved about this Pine Barrens gem that even makes meatloaf exciting! Like Guy Fieri, we’re also smitten with the Apple Pie French Toast, but the entire menu is stuffed with comfort food and elevated diner classics. It’s long embraced the farm-to-table ethos, too, complementing its gigantic portions with fresh, local produce.

(609) 267-3033, VincentownDiner.com

Distillery | Train Wreck Distillery in Mount Holly
Whether you’re looking for an intimate, unique place to catch up with friends, have a hankering for a boozy slushee or just want to pick up your next bottle of Rail Cart Gin right from the source, Burlington County’s first distillery—and its only one housed in an old train station—should be your first stop every time.

Happy Hour | Estia Taverna in Marlton
The team at Estia has figured out that hosting Happy Hour every day is the best way to perfect it. Hunker down at one of the high-top tables or the bar to enjoy daily specials on the raw bar, appetizers, craft cocktails and other drinks, and then settle in for some live Greek music.

Sushi | Akira in Moorestown
All the sushi staples are here, like the popular spicy tuna roll, avocado roll, and shrimp tempura roll, and they’re all made with the same care, creativity and culinary expertise that Akira’s fresh and imaginative signature rolls are. We can’t get enough of the Cali Beach or Pink Lady rolls’ unique mix of fresh seafood, spicy kick and satisfying crunch.

Pies | Sunflour Bakeshop in Medford and Mount Laurel 

A hidden gem at this bakery known for satisfying sweet tooths, Sunflour Bakeshop offers customers custom pies for any occasion in any flavor ranging from pumpkin, ricotta and key lime.

Dog Bakery | Pooch Patisserie in Haddon Township

We all know pets are family so when we have dessert, why shouldn’t they? The bakers at Pooch Patisserie Baking Co. in Haddon Township agree and are busy whipping up cakes (customers can choose from meatloaf, peanut butter cup, carrot or very vanilla funfetti flavors) as well as small, medium and large treats daily.

Cookies | Maria’s Mom’s in Marlton 

This family-run Italian bakery never disapoints when it comes to their cookie selection. From their staple Italian wedding cookies, their famous biscotti and even potato chip filled, there’s something for all cookie lovers to enjoy.

Poke | Poke Bros. in Sicklerville 

Sushi in a bowl, a seemingly simple idea that has foodies wanting more. Offering a twist on a Hawaiian staple, Poke Bros is a fast-casual spot where customers can customize and create their own bowl of rice, salmon, shrimp, tuna and an assortment of toppings. 

Quiche | Pie Lady Cafe in Moorestown 

Don’t be fooled by the name, yes the pie is a local favorite, but a slice of quiche is an original signature dish you must try on your next trip to this Main Street cafe. Made with a flakey crust loaded with meats, cheeses and veggies in a fluffy egg custard you won’t be disappointed. 

Ramen | Rayaki Ramen in Cherry Hill and Glassboro 

Forget about that ramen that you ate back in college, at Rayaki you’ll find a wide variety of traditional Japanese ramen dishes with intensely flavorful broths and your choice of seafood, meat of vegetarian options.

Gourmet Toast | Abandoned Luncheonette In Moorestown

At this eclectic corner store you can grab a used book, CD or DVD, while sampling from the rotating menu of tantalizing baked goods, comfort foods and other assorted menu items. We love their occasional toast offerings like tahini or ricotta, but their avocado toast with chia seeds and pickled red onions remains a perennial favorite.

Fish Tacos | Tacos el Tio in Medford

The shrimp tacos with avocado, habanero-infused pickled red onion, cilantro and salsa verde served on fresh corn tortillas are standouts. Meanwhile, the mahi mahi (your choice grilled or fried) options are made similarly but replace the cilantro and salsa with a tangy slaw and a chipotle aioli for one harmonious bite after another.

Nachos | Luna Y Sol in Moorestown

These addictive nachos start with the fresh tortilla chips, which would be tasty enough on their own, but are only further enhanced when topped with layers of refried beans, silky crema, ground chorizo, pico de gallo and crumbles of queso fresco.

Doughnuts |  Jack’s Donuts and Café in Laurel Springs

Jack’s has been serving up hot, fresh doughnuts since 1985 and attracts a loyal contingent of people from near and far who regularly travel for the chance to sink their teeth into a sinfully sweet chocolate glazed, a powdered raspberry jelly or the wonderfully tart lemon.

Brunch | Milkweed Table + Market in Pitman

The crowds waiting for a table let you know that this buzzing spot is the place to be. And it’s no wonder why, with a menu that boasts everything from mini Nutella-filled doughnuts with a brown sugar/graham cracker crumble to a coconut tiger shrimp banh mi, there’s no shortage of eye-opening offerings here.

Cakes | Classic Cake in Cherry Hill

Chef Robert Bennett and his highly skilled team have helped us celebrate a number of occasions with their sublime cakes. The red velvet or the cannoli cake are superb and we find the Classico—a cheesecake bookended by two layers of chocolate cake and covered in chocolate buttercream and fudge—to be truly sublime.

Pretzels | Mart Pretzel Bakery in Cinnaminson

Long before a certain chain started popping up all across the region, this place had us in a twist over their fresh-baked Bavarian soft pretzels with a perfectly crusty exterior which gives way to the pillowy insides. Topped with salt, everything seasoning, cinnamon sugar or stuffed with a sausage, we can never get enough.

BLT | Braddock’s in Medford

This sandwich is a grown-up version of the BLTs mom used to make. It starts with thick-cut bacon (a must) and green leaf lettuce, but things take a turn with the additions of a fried green tomato and a pimento cheese spread before everything is slid into a crusty seeded baguette.

Appetizers | The Yard House in Moorestown

Every meal gets off to a great start here with a well-appointed mix of options to please everyone at the table. You’ll find classics like fried calamari, sliders and chicken wings, but you’ll also find more less common offerings like poke nachos, grilled Korean beef and fried cheese curds.

Prepared Foods | Arnie’s Gourmet Butcher Shop and Culinaria in Cherry Hill

Arnie’s is the place to go whenever we need a fresh-cut New York strip or a stuffed chicken breast, but when we don’t feel like doing the cooking they are the save the day as well with plenty of homemade pastas and other Italian specialties, hand-carved meats, sides, soups and more.

Arancini | Bricco Coal Fired Pizza in Westmont

Bricco’s delightful fried orbs are an homage to one of Italy’s oldest and most beloved pasts dishes—cacio e pepe—and are filled with Parmesan, cracked pepper and shaved pecorino. Trust us, you’re going to need a couple orders for the table at the very least.

Shawarma | Li Beirut in Collingswood

We love grabbing a coveted table on the porch of this Lebanese restaurant and watching folks stroll along Collins Avenue while we chow down on the soul-soothing shawarma. The chicken variety is super solid, but we remain partial to the wonderfully marinated beef served with pickles, tahini dressing and roasted potatoes. 

Burrito Bowls | Amigos in Wenonah

Amigos is well-known for their amazing empanadas, but the rest of the menu shouldn’t be overlooked, including their overstuffed burritos. We prefer to ditch the tortilla and fill the bowl with our favorite mix of chicken, rice, black beans, sautéed onions, cheese and a housemade chipotle sauce.

Salads | Salad Society in Washington Twp.

Whenever we need more greens in our life, we head here because the ingredients are ultra-fresh and there’s no shortage of options, whether you’re creating your own or opting for one of their signature offerings. You’ll find all your favorite dressings as well as some enticing options like the cucumber wasabi or pineapple mango vinaigrette.

Gourmet Food Market | Haddon Culinary in Collingswood

This “chef-driven market” is the place where gourmands go when in search of quality ingredients to help create their next feast. Think small-batch olive oils, butcher-cut steaks, fresh pasta and other specialty items that are a far cry from what you’ll find on the supermarket shelves.

Cake Bars | Two Sweet Boutique in Deptford

Our latest obsession at Two Sweet has to be their version of a peanut butter tandy cake where spongey cake is smeared with gobs of peanut butter and then topped with chocolate and jimmies. While we’ve enjoyed its inspiration for most of our lives, we can confidently say this one is better.

Deli | F&M in Mount Laurel 

Here you’ll find everything from excellent breakfast sandwiches, hoagies and wraps to chicken sandwiches and burgers. But if you ask us, don’t miss the revered corned beef special, where the meat is cooked daily and piled into slices of fresh rye bread with cole slaw and Russian dressing. (856) 235-7245, FAndMCaterers.com

Flatbreads | Santucci’s in Washington Twp.

A relative newcomer to South Jersey still, this Philadelphia mainstay continues to deliver with its menu. While we would never discourage someone from ordering their pizza, Santucci’s flatbreads also dazzle and we especially like the grilled chicken with mozzarella, candied walnuts, grape tomatoes and pesto.

Barbecue | Whole Hog Café in Cherry Hill and Medford 

From the wonderfully charred ribs and succulent brisket to the mouthwatering pulled pork and smoky sausage links, this is barbecue done right. Grab some some sides (hello mac and cheese), grab some friends, grab some napkins and dig in. (609) 678-1808, WholeHogCafe.com

Wings | Francesca’s Pizza, Pasta and Grill in Mount Laurel 

The wings at Francesca’s are meaty and meant to be devoured once coated in any one of their addictive sauces. Fan favorites like barbecue and hot honey are worthy choices, but the garlic parm and honey sesame varieties are next-level delicious. (856) 802-2882 FrancescasPizzaPastaGrill.com

Bar Snacks | The PourHouse in Westmont

The elevated options on the menu at this craft beer hangout pair perfectly with any number of brews on tap. Think short rib cheese fries and goat cheese fritters or delicate pierogies with caramelized onions and a giant soft pretzel straight out of Oktoberfest.

Takeout Lunch/Dinner | Foodiehall in Cherry Hill 

It’s time to order takeout and the family is divided. The kids are demanding pizza, Mom is clamoring for tacos and Dad just has to have a burger. Instead of arguing or searching for three different restaurants, only one call is necessary. Foodiehall, a revolutionary e-restaurant offering takeout and delivery, has a variety of cuisine under one roof, sure to please every member of the group. (856) 565-4255, Foodiehall.com

Stuffed Breads | Boaggio’s Bread in Mount Laurel

It might be called stromboli everywhere else, but at this renowned specialty bakery they call it stuffed bread, because it’s filled from end to end with delicious meats, cheeses and fresh vegetables. Every customer becomes part of the extended family here, whether they’re enjoying standard favorites like pepperoni or cheesesteak or opting for chicken scallopine, sausage and peppers or spinach and anchovy. (856) 642-9955, BoaggiosBread.com

Ice Cream | What’s the Scoop in Washington Township

Stacy Valerio has dreamed for years about opening an ice cream shop in her hometown and finally saw her vision come to life this spring. It hasn’t taken long for her to win over the crowd with homemade, hand-dipped flavors like cannoli & cream, peanut butter twist and strawberry cheesecake, along with creative specialty sundaes, soft serve and water ice.

Sandwiches | Peter & Sons in Glassboro

Not only does Peter & Sons promise high-quality and fresh ingredients like ribeye steak, chicken cutlets pan fried to order, and locally sourced produce, but where else are you going to find inventive menu items like a cheesesteak between two hash browns, a vodka chicken cutlet with mozzarella squares on garlic bread or a chicken Parmesan with ravioli on a roll?

Hot Dogs | The Original Hot Dog Factory in Voorhees

These gourmet dogs made with 100% certified Angus beef come in almost 30 varieties, including a taco dog, an Italian dog and a Jamaican jerk chicken dog, all served on fresh rolls from Boaggio’s Bread. They cater to vegetarians and kids as well, and the menu also features salads, burgers, chicken sandwiches and wings. (856) 258-2857, TheOriginalHotDogFactory.com/Voorhees

Slices to Go | Luigi’s Pizza Fresca in Marlton

There’s certainly nothing wrong with old standbys like plain or pepperoni, but do yourself a favor and go out on a limb with one of the specialty slices that are on display daily for the busy lunch crowd. The calzone, margherita and chicken Caesar are just a few of our favorites, and the friendly staff is always quick with a recommendation of what’s new.

Ice Cream Pie | Latteria in Swedesboro

The rotating list of 200 mouthwatering, homemade ice cream flavors at Latteria is available year-round, but the ice cream pies can only be enjoyed during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. Since that is a time of year we love to splurge anyway, this is a new holiday tradition we are thrilled to get behind.

Smoothies | Groovy Smoothies in Haddonfield

This classic movie-themed smoothie shop offers customized drinks made with fresh fruits and vegetables that have been named after Hollywood classic movies. Try Beauty & the Peach, The Philly Wonka or West Side Smorey to name a few.

Mani/Pedi | White Lotus Nails in Marlton

Waxing Services | European Wax Center in multiple locations
Let’s be honest: There’s no such thing as a totally painless waxing experience. But the expert aestheticians at European Wax Centers’ myriad South Jersey locations have mastered the craft of making depilatory services as pain-free as possible, thanks to a four-step process ensuring the proprietary hard wax binds only to hair follicle, rather than the skin surrounding it.
