For 2008, both the Lehigh Valley Dairy Store-The Cup, and Johnny’s Bagels and Deli, two of Lehigh’s Campus Square Restaurants, won Best of the Valley titles.
Both The Cup and Johnny’s Bagels in Campus Square have been voted the region’s “Best of the Valley” by the readers of Lehigh Valley Magazine in their 13th annual Best of the Valley Readers' Poll. More than 4,000 readers completed paper and online ballots to select winners like The Cup and Johnny's.
Owners of the restaurants, along with the other 100 plus winners were announced at an awards ceremony at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Fogelsville earlier this summer.
Johnny’s Bagels was awarded the title of Best Bagels. Known valley-wide for their hand- rolled, huge, New York style bagels, Johnny’s has held fast to the Best Bagels title for three consecutive years now. Unique flavors such as cranberry orange and sundried tomato make their selections both appealing and memorable.
The Bethlehem Dairy Store- The Cup was awarded for Best Ice Cream. This also was not the first time they received a “Best of the Valley” award. Over forty hard ice cream flavors, including sugar free, low fat, and seasonal flavors, continue to draw enthusiastic crowds year after year. Recently, the Cup was also featured as one of The Morning Call’s Top Ice Cream Parlors in the Lehigh Valley.
Co-owner of the The Bethlehem Dairy Store, Bill Burkhardt, was not only enthusiastic about The Cup’s win, but also about Johnny’s and what it means for Campus Square. ''I am a very big supporter of community and small businesses,'' he says. When asked what he thinks contributed to being a “Best of the Valley” title winner, Bill jokes, “Stop in Johnny’s for a bagel, then pop over to us for some ice cream and find out!”
All “Best of the Valley” winners are featured in Lehigh Valley Magazine's July/August issue and on their website.
