“Awesome Bagels and Pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We've spent a week in Corolla for the last 7 years. We stop at Lighthouse before even checking in our home and we stop at Lighthouse on our way out of Corolla. Then, we stop at least 3 times during the week! We've even brought home their bagels and NY crumb-cake as souvenirs for friends. Their bagels are true NY bagels, as good as any we've ever had, their deli sandwiches are authentic and their pastries are incredible. In addition to the crumb-cake, don't miss their fritters or pistachio muffins-- and our favorite bagel is pumpernickel. Lighthouse is take out only-- if you need, there are a few picnic tables outside but can be very sunny. If there is a line, don't panic-- the staff is efficient and friendly.

“NY Style Bagels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Was thrilled to find a decent bagel while on vacation. Huge line but moved pretty quickly because of hustling staff! Only ordered bagels but they also served hot breakfast bagel sandwiches and lunch sandwiches. Take out only.

“Best Bagels Ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We went here just because I love going to bagel and coffee shops and we left very happy and impressed with the quality. We got there first thing in the morning and would recommend going early as we've heard they can be out of bagels by late morning. We got bagels for everyone at our beach house and every single person said that these were the best bagels they ever had. We tried everything from basic bagels to the breakfast sandwiches. The coffee was excellent too. They had samples of donut holes which were yummy and the coffee cake was scrumptious. Our order was accurate and the service was great! Definitely go here if you like bagels. They also have donuts, muffins, cinnamon rolls, coffee cake, etc.

“Not just bagels!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We were delighted to redeem our gift certificate for Lighthouse Bagels and Deli at lunchtime recently. The Caprese combination of basil, mozzarella and fresh ripe tomato on a ciabatta roll was very tasty. Service was friendly and the coffee was good. Outdoor seating is serviceable - just a few picnic tables on the edge of the parking lot, but there are umbrellas to keep it shady.

Have been going here for years- they never disappoint. Their donuts are amazing...every bit as good as their bagels.
