“Too many people look at the holes in their life and miss the glorious bagel right in front of them.”- Unknown

Bagels are the quick and easy meal of many on-the-go Americans, and everyone from grown adults to small children can appreciate the fresh, chewy goodness of a freshly baked bagel. There are many reasons to love bagels, and luckily for us, we have some of the best bagel shops around right her in the Inner Banks!

Edenton Coffee House is our go-to for some of the best coffee around but it also happens to be our favorite bagel (and more) spot too!  If you’re stopping by this coffee shop in the morning, treat yourself to a grilled bagel sandwich or sweet, flaky pastry.  Their baked goods include cinnamon rolls, coffee cake, muffins, scones, and a variety of other tasty options.  For lunch, you can choose from a varied menu of fresh homemade sandwiches, salads, wraps, and paninis.

Another go-to in Edenton is Brew to Rescue; the café with a cause!  Not to mention, the coffee is really good and the food is delicious!  They have amazing bagels and breakfast treats as well as soups and sandwiches. T-shirts, wrist bands and other jewelry are also available in support of the cause as well.  So grab some swag while you are there too!

Lighthouse Bagels and Deli is the perfect spot to stop if you are craving an assortment of different flavors or if you are feeding a group.  Become everyone’s favorite co-worker when you show up at the office with a bag of assorted bagels that will please everyone!  They sell them by the baker’s dozen for only $21.20.  While you’re there, be sure to grab some locally roasted and brewed cold brew coffee!
