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

Great spot for a casual breakfast. Delicious fresh bagels with very high quality toppings. Will definitely return during the course of our vacation.

This bagel shop near Lewes town is a popular spot in the morning and lunch time. Fresh bagels with several different kinds of smears. At lunch, they serve sandwiches and soups. Very casual and surfing theme thru out. They serve Swell coffees. Coconut was my favorite flavored coffee.

Bagels, Bagels, Bagels--large fresh, unbelievable favored bagels. The store has plenty of parking & seating--but the younger crowds --young 20's--that migrate there can be overwhelming--but not to worry--they'll have you moving quickly with your purchase. They have other items, but the main item is the bagels.

Great bagels! Huge variety of bagels and bagel stuffing! Many choices for bagel sandwiches, wraps and hoagies (subs). Make your own salads and vegetarian options. Give it a try!
