The bagels here are absolutely delicious and there are several picnic tables out front, but plan to take your breakfast "to go" if the weather isn't perfect. This establishment is small and the line was lengthy (even in the shoulder season). They don't have just everything on their menu at all times, but everything we tried was delicious. They are...

Delicious and freshly prepared food. Spotlessly clean. Love Boars head deli -- always a huge hit -- and the bagels are very good. We've already gone back so we definitely recommend. Took off one star because salad dressings are bottled -- please offer homemade dressings even if it means fewer choices -- would make a huge difference. Also, service is... More

Fresh bagels and add ons. Long line that moves efficiently but don't go in there hungry, it'll be torture smelling it on line.

We were in the mood for some deli type sandwiches so after some research, we found Lighthouse. It was exactly what we wanted! There was a bit of a wait. With it being Spring Break in the area, I'm sure they were busier than a normal Monday afternoon. Three guys were holding down the fort, taking orders and making sandwiches... More

Can't beat this place for great bagels or breakfast sandwiches. The French Toast bagel is decadent! No matter what you order, you'll be totally satisfied.

Have been going here since they opened. Love everything I have gotten here. Go early in season, because it gets packed early. A good sign of a good place is how long the lines are!!!

I've been going to Lighthouse Bagels for years now. They're consistently the best takeaway breakfast in town. The dailies (muffins, scones, coffee cakes) are always delicious. I had a pistachio muffin this morning that was perfect! The pork role breakfast sandwich is my go-to. The eggs and meat are grilled fresh in front of you. Last but certainly not least,... More

The bagels are fresh and yummy. I loved the everything bagel, and the smell is heavenly. If you are in Corolla, definitely try Lighthouse.
