Walking into the shop you can smell the freshly baked bagels. Such a wide assortment to choose from, plain to French toast cream cheeses too! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bagels are huge and flavorful. Great for breakfast or for a sandwich....More

I ordered a veggie sub and the roll was amazing, as was the wonderful variety of veggies and condiments available (hummus and fresh avocado- yay!)!

Freaking expensive! 2 small coffees, specialty bagel w veggie cream cheese & a breakfast sandwich bagel...almost $17. We'll just hit a restaurant next time. Food was good, nice selection, nothing spectacular.

I tried Lighthouse Bagels during my last visit in 2015. I had the French Toast bagel by recommendation of a staff member. I absolutely love it. I am SO excited to be visiting again so I can have it again.

Sorry, I don't remember seeing gluten free options. Then again, I wasn't looking either. If you call them, they might be able to confirm.
