As a self-proclaimed breakfast connoisseur, I have to say The Bagel Shack makes one top flight breakfast sandwich. We stopped here on our way out after a week in LBI featuring multiple trips to Chegg and Uncle Will's, and the pork roll, egg and cheese tucked into a whole wheat everything bagel at the Shack was probably my favorite breakfast....

Never seen a bagel store with lines a block deep that wasn't known as the best bagels in town. The Bagel Shack definitely worth the title. Lines move quick so knowing what you want before you get in helps. Egg, bacon and cheese on a poppyseed bagel is my favorite. If there are seats, take them. The people watching is... More

The bagels here are good. We visited shortly after Hurricane Sandy and they were the only place open in the southern end of the island. It is best to plan for take out and the line goes quickly. I always get at least one breakfast from there whenever I go to LBI.

Bagel Shack is tops in our book for breakfast on the go or sit and relax and people watch at one of the outside tables. Bagels made fresh daily. My favorite though is the pork roll, egg, and cheese on a fresh soft kaiser roll with a bottle of OJ, Perfect way to start the day at the beach.
