A good trip needs a good breakfast! On our way to our annual Outer Banks vacation, we stopped overnight with family in Virginia Beach, and the next morning we fueled up at a relatively new spot called Bagel Baker. Bagel Baker is just over a year old, tucked into a good-sized space in a small strip mall in the Great Neck area. It’s decorated in bright and colorful art – a lot of it New York City-themed – with clean, cool colors painted on the walls.

Their specialty, of course, is bagels, and they strive to bring a bit of New York City to Virginia Beach, drawing on the owner’s family’s heritage. The breakfast menu features bagels with various toppings, plus all sorts of variations on the breakfast sandiwch.

The restaurant has a large, long seating area. There’s also a few chairs and tables out front. The renovation is all new and very nicely done.

The restaurant uses counter service for ordering. Our orders were brought out by the owner himself. Some of the service was a little confusing, with some things arriving plated and some not, but it was great to get to chat with the owner himself.

We’re in love with smoked salmon, so we of course ordered that on an everything bagel. It came out in a hugely generous portion, with mounds of smoked salmon, tomato, cream cheese, capers, and thinly sliced red onion. All fresh, and all delicious. I love the nice clean flavors of good salmon, cream cheese, and veggies.

Here’s a huge blueberry bagel with blueberry cream cheese. Just right if you want something sweet for breakfast.

Mrs. Bfast w/Nick ordered the salmon bagel with the bagel on the side, and they again brought it out in generous portions.

I love corned beef, so the corned beef bagel sandwich caught my eye. I ordered in on an everything bagel, with a fried egg and Swiss cheese. Again, it came with a generous stack of meat. Aside from a bagel with smoked salmon, this will become my go-to for bagel sandwiches. I should also say that all of the bagels were had were excellent: freshly made, big and puffy, and flavored well. More and more the everything bagel has become my standard, and Bagel Baker’s lived up to the tradition of great New York bagels.

I love breakfast. So I eat it a lot, & write about it. In my city of Columbus, Ohio & wherever I travel, I'm out to find & enjoy all the breakfasts out there.
