We get bagels here every Sunday morning. We get either the Super Cinnamon Raisin or the Asiago Bagels. There is no better in the area.

Once you have tried Bagel Dock bagels no other will compare. Absolutely the best. So glad they opened a second place in Shallotte, NC. Try the jalapeño cheddar toasted with Taylor ham and provolone cheese. My FAVORITE!! 💖💖

Went to pick up breakfast and left with a dozen bagels. These are the best bagels in the area hands down. They are better than any of the chains and actually use real ingredients.

Stopped in at the recommendation of friends for bagels and cream cheese. Really good, chewy bagels and cream cheese spreads with real fruit pieces in them. Crumb coffee cake was moist and delicious. Coffee not bad either. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We'll be back earlier in the week next year, to get bagels to go former beach house!

Growing up in New York and New Jersey, I got to know what a good bagel should be. To my surprise the bagels at "the Dock" are as good or better than any I've had anywhere.
