Best sandwich shop at the beach. We were disappointed that they no longer have their handmade gelatos

Everything, food and service, is great. Every year we come to the OBX, this is a daily morning stop for me. The donuts, muffins and bagels are awesome! You can't go wrong.

Great selection of large tasty bagels along with deserts and deli products. Friendly staff. Only drawback is the store is too small. I would look at narrowing down the drink selection which would reduce the amount of large coolers they have.

My review is based only on deli part of the restaurant. The staff was nice and the place was clean. My sandwich was just average though. Everything was good but the roast beef was very bland. With all the roast beef on the sandwich it really took away from the overall taste. I wish the roast beef had more flavor... More

I've lost count of how many times we've come here - easily over 100. Each and every time, the best bagels, best cinammon rolls when they're not sold out and always, service with a smile. They're so responsive, when they see long lines, they introduce pickup and call ahead. It's always a highlight of our trip and everyone else's trip... More

These were, without a doubt, the best bagels I've ever eaten. Don't be intimidated by long lines to order. They keep things moving, and the food is worth any wait you might experience.

Simply the best bagels outside the greater New York area. The bagels are big, soft and chewy. When toasted, just sublime. Love the rosemary olive oil bagel. Their premium cinnamon burst and french toast bagels are a favorite of the kids. We ordered a few to take home, wrapped and froze them for our return trip home and then thawed... More

The food was great. The only downside was that it took almost a half hour for 2 sandwiches. I don't blame the staff as they were working continuously making food. It was just a busy time, and there were a lot of call in orders that they were making. I'd definitely go back but hope it's not as busy next... More

Traveled to OBX last week from New York. We were afraid of not getting NY style bagels. Lighthouse Bagel and Deli proved us wrong. bagels were excellent - fresh and cooked to perfection. We also tried some of the pastries and deli items - ALL DELICIOUS.

We went to lighthouse bagels twice on our recent obx trip. The rosemary bagels are the best I've ever had. Coffee isn't bad here either and on our second trip we ordered a sticky bun which was delicious. I also ordered extra bagels to take home with me. Will defintely come here every year. The only downside is there is... More
