Bagels with heart and soul!

Great place for both breakfast and lunch! Surf Bagel is one of the coolest joints in town. You can't go wrong when the coffee varieties are named "Dubee" "Mor-feen" and "Stoked"! . Great bagels, sandwiches (my favorite is the whitefish), and delicious coffee. Yummy sweet treats, too. The coffee... read more

Warm inviting family owned place with so many choices, in particular, healthy ones. Dishes made with lots of veggies and beans. This is my first stop when I get off of ferry, just a little over a five minute drive. I've never been disappointed with the service, the cleanliness and most of all their healthy and delicious choices. Also the... More

Bought a dozen bagels and regular cream cheese. The bagels were nice and hot, very fresh and tasty. Only problem was that there was a long line to get the bagels. Would get them again.

As a vegan, it's always scary to walk into a restaurant hungry. And I've eaten too much hummus lately. I asked the friendly staff what I could eat and (on a busy day) created the most delicious grilled veggie bagel sandwich I have ever eaten. Prices seem about right and the place is always hopping!

I am a frequent customer who just stopped in to but a dozen bagels and two things of cream cheese. First, I was given the wrong cream cheese order. When I asked for it to be changed the woman huffed and puffed at me. When she handed me the container it wasn't full and I said it wasn't full. She... More

These are not NY style bagels - these things are soft, chewy and dense x 5 - cooked just enough to be done and not a second later. This place was hustling and bustling on a VERY busy Tuesday morning when we where there, people were flying through this place, bagels here, coffees there, crazy business. Very tasty bagels though,... More

I stopped on my way to Cape on a Saturday morning. Fairly busy but the service was quick. My bagel had just the right amount of chewiness and the strawberry cream cheese was smooth and creamy.

Didn't get the hype. The staff seemed miserable and they messed up our order - which was takeout so we didn't realize it until it was too late to fix. If you get the chicken salad - get some salt & pepper as it is too bland and definitely check your boxes before you leave to make sure you got... More

Best, fresh breakfast food and bagel sandwiches for lunch. The local owners are very generous supporters of local causes. Look for the team pictures on the wall near the brightly colored murals of a bagel that surfs! They just started roasting their own coffee. A real treasure!
