These are the best bagels anywhere in the area. The sandwiches are generous and very good. The atmosphere is beachy, lively, and very informal. They only do carryout and eat in for breakfast and lunch.

Just stopped in for lunch and had a great chicken salad sandwich on a freshly toasted bagel. Very delicious, plus some great coffees. Very popular.

I really like the bagel breakfast sandwich here. The decor is all about surfing with tvs running videos of surfing adventures. They also roast their own coffee, which is the brand we now buy regularly for home. We are particularly fond of Stoked. I also like their blueberry for a change. Their bagels are the best around and we also... More

They are good at keeping people moving though. They do make their own bagels. Their savory bagels, like everything bagels are my favorite. Get one as a breakfast sandwich to break all your diets deliciously.

On an off late November weekend the line was long. The bagels are great, the place is not so clean but it is acceptable. Service is pretty quick, they call your name when it is ready. A pleasant Spanish guy was announcing when your order was ready. Every name he called sounded exactly the same. If I hadn't check every... More

We liked variety of bagels and coffee choices. The sandwich menu looks delicious but looking for bagels-which were excellent. Servers helpful. Definitely casual dining.
