The cheddar biscuits at Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen in Morristown could simply be named OMG. Bacon, honey, and alchemy are involved, resulting in euphoria. A potentially perfect experience might consist of simply ordering the twin biscuits ($11), another nosh, and a lovely craft cocktail or two at one of the historic mansion’s three bars. —KT Harrison

One of NJM’s favorite restaurants in Collingswood, Sabrina’s Café is a lively eatery that’s perfect for brunch, with delicious sweet and savory bites. Stuffed-challah French toast, soups, and an egg or tofu scramble are some of the top-notch dishes. Come thirsty, because the café is always brewing new specialty coffees and juices. —Emily Melvin

The crispy tofu banh mi sandwich at Mercado in Montclair is excellent. The spiced hummus, avocado salsa verde, pickled carrot-daikon-cucumber relish, and sweet chili glaze create an explosion of flavor, and the seared tofu provides a neutral foil. A tangled mass of cilantro stems adds another tingle to your tongue. —Julia Martin

With its delicious 3-inch pies a must-try for anyone with a sweet tooth, Lillipies Bakery in Princeton is a longtime New Jersey Monthly favorite. Now, owner/head baker Jen Carson has put out a charming children’s book, Pie for My Birthday, which includes a sweet story, plus kid-friendly recipes like chocolate-cake donuts. It’s $19 at the shop or lillipies.com. —Julie Gordon
