Ordered ahead for Sunday morning. Fresh Bagels were excellent, cream cheese selection pretty amazing. Bagels were still good to eat on Wednesday.

This is one of our favorite take out places in Corolla for breakfast bagels, doughnuts and cinnamon rolls. They are baked fresh daily. They will make your bagels with eggs, bacon, cheese or whatever you want. The best part of their bagels is that they have a great variety and made fresh daily.

Love these bagels... and the line moves much faster than you'd think! I especially enjoy the French Toast bagel - sounds weird, but it's delicious!

The coffee here is average at best, but the bagels, soft pretzels and breakfast sandwiches are all quite good. Nice sandwich selection as well.

We received a coupon for free bagels from our vacation house. They were soft and delicious! The cream cheese was also fabulous! The service, however, wasn't the best. We got there at 2:20 and they close at 3, but the staff quickly informed us that there wasnt much left and he was leaving in 20 min. We got out bagels... More

These bagels are huge and delicious. My kids loved them! They are a little pricey, but worth it. I brought a dozen (you get a bakers dozen) home from the beach and they are almost gone! Staff is friendly.

Have been going to the Outer Banks for many many years (more than 20). This is a "gotta have" every time we go. Bagels are fantastic and the lunch sandwiches are exceptional. Our favorite is the Caprese supreme. I don't think you could go wrong here. We love it.

These bagels are pretty good for the south but fall short of comparing to New York/New Jersey type bagels. People are very nice and friendly here which is NOT typical of New York/New Jersey places!

The bagels are exceptional and the breakfast sandwiches on those bagels are excellent. The service was indifferent. We had a borderline unfriendly order taker and checkout guy. The coffee is meh. Nothing to write home about. My wife and I agreed though that the bagels are worth a return visit. NOTE: There is no sitting inside this establishment. And when... More

The bagel breakfast sandwiches were awesome. They were huge and could easily feed two people. I had the coffee as well and it too was very good. It's also worth noting that the staff was very helpful and patient even though the place was very busy.
