I found great real rye bread in NJ!

Ever since my favorite local bakery closed a number of years ago I have been in search of some good, authentic Brooklyn style Jewish rye bread. I am in Morris County and although there are plenty of bakeries in the area none have a great rye bread. I have been so desperate for it at times whenever I have to go into Manhattan, I make it a point of hitting up Zabars just to pick up a couple of loves to put in my freezer. This past week I had a meeting at Rutgers in New Brunswick, and since I was in the area and knew that there was such a large Orthodox community in neighboring Highland Park, I thought I take a short drive (5 min) to see what I could find. I stumbled upon Ofi Yofi on the main drag, Raritan Ave (aka rte 27) it is a small shop only a couple of blocks from the intersection of 622 and 27. The bakery is kosher, and it has the best rye bread ever, with that perfect crunchy crust and plenty of seeds. Their rye definitely rivals the best I have had from Brooklyn! I know that there have been previous thread of those searching high and low for great rye bread, so I thought I'd share my find. Enjoy!
