“Ranked number 1 for a reason.”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Haven't eaten any meals here but breakfast and dessert. 4 straight days this time, not just because they were open, Corolla had other choices since spring break was starting. We ate here because they were excellent. Good selection of bagels although they were out of pumpernickel the last day and great coffee cake and cinnamon buns. We like that the eggs were fried rather than microwaved. Staff was fast and as friendly to us as the locals that came in.

“Heavenly bagels”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This has been a favorite spot for our family for awhile. A relative visiting from the NE once reluctantly said that these bagels are as good or better than he gets at home. Great bagels. Family favorite includes Taylor ham on a breakfast bagel. Friendly, family owned business.

“Best Breakfast in the OBX”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We have enjoyed this spot for breakfast and lunch since we first stopped in 4 years ago.

On the way out of town we buy bagels for our neighbors back home in Virgina.

“Great bagels and sandwiches!,”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

They have the best Caprese sandwich I have ever had, in addition to great, fresh bagels. They're even fresh in the off-season!!

Thank you for taking the time to write. I'm glad you still stopped in off-season (even though the deli was not up and running!). You will always find fresh bagels at our store, the boys get up at 3 every morning to make sure of that!

“Real Bagels!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Delicious bagels! Hard to get real bagels in the south, but Lighthouse bagels makes them right. And the best part is that they put the seasoning on both sides so the top and bottom are equally good! Love them!
