Great bagels, chicken and tuna salad. The fresh chicken noodle soup is yummy! Check on winter hours.

I am not a bagel person so I was skeptical when my cousin drove up. But they have a full line of sandwiches. I got a cheesesteak and it was good. I did make sure they served it on a sub roll though and not a bagel! (they do). My cousin got a mexican chicken wrap and liked hers too.... More

I usually visit Surf Bagel once every few months. People seem to love it as evidenced by the lines you will find there every weekend. The bagels are allright but not New York quality. Their menu is large and varied. It would make a difference if the man who is always at the register would be friendlier and more appreciative... More

This place has the best bagels around. Period. Great breakfast sandwiches too. They roast their own coffee next door which is very good too. Weekends can be a bit busy.

Probably the best bagel I've had outside of NYC. Fresh, soft, flavorful bagels and friendly, fast service.

The bacon egg and cheese was great and I felt like I was eating at home the entire time I was there.

I love this place! I get the same thing every time- Sausage Egg and cheese on a jalapeño bagel. It's my favorite. The bagels are delicious. Even though it's always packed I still never have to wait long. I'll definitely be back soon :)

Thank 302BeachGirl
