Best Bagels In Lewes. Great Coffee too!

I really like the bagel breakfast sandwich here. The decor is all about surfing with tvs running videos of surfing adventures. They also roast their own coffee, which is the brand we now buy regularly for home. We are particularly fond of Stoked. I also like their blueberry for a change. Their... read more

WOW, these bagels are so good. The varieties and combinations are so amazing. We eat here all the time and never had a bad experience. The white fish spread is my fav and the jalapeno or strider bagels are yummy. The place is tucked back off the main route 1 highway and it has bankers hours. Get there early or... More

They are good at keeping people moving though. They do make their own bagels. Their savory bagels, like everything bagels are my favorite. Get one as a breakfast sandwich to break all your diets deliciously.

A pleasant Spanish guy was announcing when your order was ready. Every name he called sounded exactly the same. If I hadn't check every... More

Fresh authentic bagels! Best bagels in the area -- close to NYC bagels. Busy place. I buy a bakers doze, cut in half, wrap and freeze.

Their chicken noodle soup was one of the best I have ever had. The people who work here are all very friendly. The atmosphere is very, very casual. It has a nice outdoor seating area for... More

Yes I know what "real" bagels are. These are GREAT bagels. Up there with the best of NYC, Chicago, SF, anywhere. My wife's parents live in Lewes, and whenever we get a chance, we go to Surf Bagel. We bring them back to Singapore on the plane! Really nice people too. Great lox, smears, sandwiches, even good coffee. Yes! Go... More
