Must Visit Bike Shop in NJ Trenton/Philly

Here for vacation (sans bike ). Would love to stop by a cool bike shop while here.
Google gives plenty of results, but no indication of what the must-see shops are.

the guys at breakaway in philly are great, though I'm not sure what a must visit bike shop is honestly.

+1 to Breakaway. Perhaps also Cadence if they are open

Veloro in Redwood City is my must-visit bike shop whenever I need some work done on the bike that I don't have the patience to handle.

Bit farther north, Trenton area is Knapps's. Very good.

+1 to Cadence.

Thanks. I made it to Breakaway and will try to get to Knapps today. I'm staying near Trenton.

And by 'must-see'. I really just meant a nice bike shop that has shop kit, nice bikes to drool over, other fun stuff above a normal bike shop.
Despite the Lance connection, it was a must to visit Mellow Johnny's while in Austin. While in Asheville, NC it was a must to visit Beer City Bikes, etc.

Different worlds I guess. I only use stuff that's free, cheap, or otherwise bought online (typically used). And all my kits are the same (free). If in philly Breakaway is a must visit, but that's because Joe is my friend. If in Austin I'd be eating BBQ or trying to not catch the weird. The only time I've gone into a bike shop when traveling is when I needed a tube.

I don't usually get to bring a bike when I travel, so stopping by bike shops is the next best thing.

if you are in Trenton, there's a nice shop by Lambertsville called Pure Energy Cycling and Java House. Located really close to the Delaware.
