Yummy and quick!

I stopped on my way to Cape on a Saturday morning. Fairly busy but the service was quick. My bagel had just the right amount of chewiness and the strawberry cream cheese was smooth and creamy.

Didn't get the hype. The staff seemed miserable and they messed up our order - which was takeout so we didn't realize it until it was too late to fix. If you get the chicken salad - get some salt & pepper as it is too bland and definitely check your boxes before you leave to make sure you got... More

Best, fresh breakfast food and bagel sandwiches for lunch. The local owners are very generous supporters of local causes. Look for the team pictures on the wall near the brightly colored murals of a bagel that surfs! They just started roasting their own coffee. A real treasure!

Delicious made to order bagel sandwiches with delicious chicken salad, grated mozzarella and a slice of pineapple called the "Islander". Love it!

I have travelled extensively and these bagels have it all over others I have had. They are ALWAYS fresh tasting, great variety of flavors, and the spreads are creamy and delicious. Don't be scared off by the long line when you get there; they are efficient and orders move quickly. It has become a favorite since moving to Lewes.

Best bagels south of NYC! Delicious food as well. So popular that the parking lot is filled most weekends. Well known by beach seeking tourists!

Lots of people love this place--but I am not a fan, Bagels are chewy--I prefer New York style. I love whole wheat bagels -- but theirs aren't the usual texture.

The bagels are great! Try their lunch wraps and specials as well. They do run out of bagels so get there early. Order ahead for bagel pick up orders for holidays etc. A great local stop.
