The coffee was really good. The service was super-friendlly. The pastries, at least, the muffins, were the worst I have ever had, and that made me sad because i wanted to like everything about this place. I had to go order a breakfast sandwich because I did not want my muffin, and the sandwich started off being really good (a... More

wkmoon - I am VERY sorry this happened to you. I used this as a training tool for all of the staff. There is no excuse for you getting an unripe avocado.

Love the sandwiches at Waveriders. Always plenty of meat and cheese and the bread is fantastic. Pleasant atmosphere and the service is always good. It's becoming a regular spot for a quick bite to eat for lunch.

We had the opportunity to visit the folks at Waveriders Coffee and Deli on two occasions during the 2nd Annual Warrior Beach Bash. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional.

We were staying in a condo on the beach and we were able to just walk to this place. They have a very clean place with lots of goodies. We both got a sandwich and a drink and split yogurt with fruit and a muffin. It was a little chilly inside so we ate out on the porch. Wonderful place.
