“Try the Rosemary Bagels!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2009

We liked this place so much we ate lunch there 3 times during our week in Corolla. The r Rosemary Bagels are to die for--if you like herb-seasoned sandwiches. We had both turkey and ham sandwiches on these with their store-made Basil mayo and they were fabulous. The sandwiches are piled high with quality fresh deli meat and enough to share one if you have a small appetite. Their muffins are enormous and very tasty (double chocolate one was yum and my husband liked the glorious morning muffin). I even bought rosemary bagels and cream cheese to have at home!

“Surprisingly Excellent Bagels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2009

When I say surprisingly excellent, I mean that they were really really good. I had heard that this place was a must in corolla, but I still wasn't sure what to expect.

When I got there , the line was out the door, further peaking my interest. The line moved and in no time I was ordering my Bacon Egg and Cheese on an Everything Bagel. The eggs and bacon where cooked on a grill unlike the bagel shop near my home where it is all microwaved, and you could certainly tell the difference. The bagel was excellent.

This is one of those places that you want to tell everyone about it is so good. They also sell gelato here, which seems like a weird combo, but after trying a free sample in the morning we came back at night. I had never had gelato before but man was it good. We were in Corolla for a 7 day vacation, and I think we came to Lighthouse about 5 times. I can't wait to go back next summer.

Pistachio Gelato!!!!!!!!

“Bagel Bagel Bagels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2009

Great place to grab bagels for the whole house while on vacation. The bagel sandwiches with are good weather it is for breakfast or lunch. Also have a very unique smoothie shop that has not always been there but serves delicious smoothies and an assortment of gelato flavors. (peanut Butter cup is my favorite) I recommend it to all my friends that rent down there.

Best bagels I have had outside NY. Try the rosemary olive oil bagels. Boars Head cold cuts too.
