For the best bagels in town in a great atmosphere go to this restaurant. Always prompt and friendly service and good food, especially breakfast. Ask for Tommy when you go in.

Outstanding Salmon BLT on a bagel. My favorite sesame bagel was sold out, but the everything bagel was pretty darn good too.

Very crowded on a Sunday morning. Taylor ham was a bit well done. Bagels were underdone. Old decor on the inside. Staff was friendly. Tried the Old Bay bagel and thought it was ok.

This is a combo deli/bagel shop and a good place to grab a quick breakfast sandwich . We encountered a long line with crowds on a late Sept Saturday AM, but line loved quickly and we found a table for 7 by the time our food arrived. The SLT (salmon lettuce and tomato) was a great sandwich . It comes... More

This place has seen better days, I think. The menu is cute. The name is catchy. The concept, however, is worthy of better execution. The staff was less than friendly, the place was less than clean, and the food was less than good. I wouldn't say it was gnarly, but it definitely was not going off. Meh.

If you are looking for a bagel like those found in New York City you most likely will not find them at the Delaware beaches. At least I haven't yet. However, if you want a good tasting, freshly baked bagel, served with a smile, then I highly recommend Surf Bagel. They have about a dozen or more different types and... More

We stopped at Surf Bagel on our way out of town yesterday. We got there at 6:35 and it turns out they had opened at 6:30! We were lucky and they were ready and in what seemed like peak-day form. Everyone was much more friendly than I am at that time. They had tons of bagels, the owner was extremely... More
