The Bagel Cafe opened its doors to the Litchfield Beach and Pawleys Island community in May 2014. Founded by Debra and Guy Guglielmi, the couple is committed to bringing the freshness and flavors of a true NY deli to the lowcountry. Debra has always had a love and flair for the food business. Having spent her lifetime in and around the restaurant business with her parents in Pennsylvania Debra learned at a young age what it means to keep customers happy. Debra’s parents were the owners of a fresh fish market and deli for over 25 years. As you can imagine that is exactly where all of Debra’s high school days were spent, working in the family business! As you’ll often hear her say, "it's all about the food, and it's in your blood".
Since those days of growing up in her parents small shop, it has always been Debra’s dream to open her very own deli some day. And that day finally came in 2014!
