Have been making surf bagel a frequent breakfast stop for their lox any bagel platter. The bagels are fresh and made on premises daily. The lox is topped with all the trimmings and they are generous with the lox.

Always fresh and always cooked to your perfection. Great service and not long lines. I prefer my bagels hot and fresh and they are always made that way. Very clean and well staffed.
