Bagels were delicious and some still warm when we got them in the morning. The French Toast bagel was really great. We also sampled a variety of cream cheeses which were also delish. The whole family enjoyed the bagels at breakfast and lunch.

First visited in 2015 and was amazed by the genuine NY bagels (including my favorite, salt). The staff even had the NY attitude (ok, maybe that's not a benefit).

We've been to Corolla for four years, and finally we made a run for Lighthouse Bagels. What were we waiting for? All of our bagel-eating group loved them. Next year LB will be a must-go destination!

Of all the times I've been to the Outer Banks, I've never been to Lighthouse Bagels. We went for the first time to grab some quick breakfast. Had a couple of bacon, egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches and some chocolate milk. Everything was good, what more could you ask for?

Great little place just tucked on the end of a strip mall. Very good menu with breakfast and lunch options. We had a special sandwich not on the regular menu - Chicken Caesar Club and it had so much flavor! If you are staying in the Corolla area I would check this place out...the bagels looked very good and we... More
