Located on a side road between Sea Pines Circle and the Cross Island Bridge, Signe’s Heaven Bound Bakery Café is not on Hilton Head Island’s beaten path. But it’s definitely worth discovering. 

AUTHENTIC NY STYLE BOILED BAGELS

When you’re in the mood for a bagel you deserve only the best, right? That’s why their 16 flavors of bagels are made from scratch and boiled in purified water daily.
