We go here about everyday we are at the OBX. When you have REAL bagels like this you want more. The price is good too. Can't wait till next year.

This is the place for breakfast sandwiches. I always hit the sausage, cheese, and egg bagel sandwich and get it on the egg bagel. Perfect. Not into their coffee so much and will get coffee a couple shops down.

Sorry, I don't remember seeing gluten free options. Then again, I wasn't looking either. If you call them, they might be able to confirm.
