I love this place, the bagels remind me of true NYC bagels. I’m from the state on NY so it’s hard to find good bagels and this place did not disappoint! It’s worth the price! Can’t wait to stop again next year!

We stopped for a quick lunch. Great chicken cheese steak sub and fries. Food was pretty good. Fries were hot and crisp. They offered bottled drinks and decent selection. Next door had beer and wine for sale.

Lighthouse bagels has been my go to breakfast stop. I am sure there are other great breakfast spots, but I have never tried them!

Went to buy cinnamon rolls and/or donuts for breakfast. They had no donuts, which was disappointing since it was only 1 hour after opening. We ended up buying the few cinnamon rolls they had left and a few bagels. The bagels were good, but the...More
