We were back to the Surf Bagel and Deli - this time for a good deli lunch, and this place delivered. We decided on take out. The sandwiches were prepared quickly, packaged well and everything worked out as expected. We tried one of the cheesesteaks and an Italian Combo "Longboard" Sub. Both were served in insulated containers with a side... More

The best bagels around. Great breakfast and lunch sandwichs. The Staff is always friendly and healpful. The prices are reasonable and fair. The second store was a great idea to take preasure off the main store. Highly recommend.

Any of their bagel offerings can be ordered as a gluten-free wrap. I had the whitefish salad wrap with lettuce, tomatoes, etc. The wraps come with a bunch of their kettle potato chips (crisps if your from the UK). I had a fountain drink--you get a Large cup to use. They also have bottled drinks and a selection of coffees.... More

The bagels are delicious. The wide variety is great. BUT .... since they are practically the only show in town...the prices are outrageous. Never thought I would pay what they ask for chicken salad or tuna or cream cheese on a bagel. There is a small area to eat which is not policed by the staff at all and therefore... More

We lived in SoDE for about 14 years. Surf Bagel was our favorite place for 1)Breakfast and 2)Bagels. The bagels were always fresh and there were so many choices. You just absolutely cannot go wrong stopping in whether you are a local or a visitor on your way to an enjoyable vacation.

When I first moved to Delaware, Surf Bagels were great. Being from New Jersey I know what good pizza and good bagels taste like and that's hard to come by here in Delaware. The bagels at Surf Bagel are mediocre at best and not much better than a supermarket bagel. They got cheap with the ingredients-you get 2-4 raisins in... More
