good value, though not an NYC bagel experience

good, honest bagels/coffee at good prices. This is not an authentic bagel experience like you find in NYC but close enough. The best in the area

My husband and I went to Bagel Basket yesterday morning and purchased bagels, cream cheese and coffee to bring back to our hotel. We were really disappointed! The bagels were bland (about 2 raisins in the cinnamon/raisin bagel). Also, the man behind the counter was very short with us. I wouldn't recommend this place.

Given lobster is Maine and bagels are New York I didn't know what to expect. They are very good size they toast up beautifully… a little crispy on the outside and a little soft on the inside. When we finish these I will definitely go back and try some of their other varieties.

I would gladly go back to Bagel Basket! It's a funky spot with great bagels - two things I appreciate. The only drawback I found about Bagel Basket is that they don't take debit or credit cards. There is an ATM on site, but expect fees from this ATM and your own bank. We chose a 5 minute walk to... More

Delicious, and worth checking out. My favorite is the French toast bagel. They have a bunch of yummy flavors and sandwich combos. It is small and usually very crowded but the line moves quickly. Parking is limited, but so worth the hassle! Love starting the day with a bagel on the beach!

While the bagels and cream cheese are very good, the service leaves much to be desired. The owner and his son are sullen and sometimes rude. I watched the owner put a customer's 3 bags of bagels on the floor because she was taking too long. The son left my husband hanging mid order to wait on someone he knew.... More

It was a decent bagel but I've had better. The coffee was almost too hot and I've never said that before. Sleeves for the cups would be helpful. They did have a lot to choose from in both bagels and coffee and the service was fast.

We were looking for an espresso and saw this charming place. It was decorated so pretty out front with all the fall decorations! The inside was charming, and warm, and had a great vibe to it. You order at a counter, then take your drink/food into a dining area with cool, eclectic furniture (I loved the hardwood floors). My friend... More

This is one of the most well run bagel establishments I have ever visited. The line is often long, but, before you know it, they are taking your order. The person who handles your order and takes your money (unfortunately they don't take credit cards), generally does not do the food preparation.

Maybe the staff/owners are worn out from the sheer volume of customers because of their great location, but after a few visits we've started to feel like our business is somewhat of a burden given the attitudes of those behind the counters. A smile and thank you would go a long way...especially for those dealing with the inconvenience of cash... More
