We went here for a late lunch in the off season and were very impressed. The sandwiches were delicious (The Waverider & The Gouda) and we had some yummy beers. The atmosphere was really nice, too. I could see going there and hanging out regularly if we were local. They had breakfast sandwiches, coffee, smoothies, sandwiches, and beer - so... More

Stopped in one morning for coffee and was surprised how much this place had to offer. Not only was the coffee and breakfast menu great, but they have a variety of craft beers and a nice selection of lunch items as well. We enjoyed it and will be going back!

This is a take a break, relax type of place. It is a deli-coffee shop-craft beer-wifi-casual seating-spend two hours with your friends type of place. Reasonable prices. Good sandwiches and desserts. Kid friendly, but the kids would get bored really quick. My wife and I met a friend of mine that I had not seen in 25 years. Two hours... More

My fiancee and I meet with our weeding planner, photographer, and florist over a four hour period up until they closed. There was never once pressure to leave even after they closed as our meeting lasted way longer than planned. They also had a really varying section of craft beer as well. We will definitely be back on our future... More

Tried Waveriders for the first time after the Labor Day holiday and are glad we did! Terrific, fresh made sandwiches & side salads ('tho small) at very reasonable prices + friendly staff & a comfortable, clean atmosphere. Plenty of parking just outside as well. Saw a few customers hanging out, taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi stations. Looking forward to... More

Great staff, inventive vibe, excellent options. Kick back and relax on a sofa or at a table. They have a great room off the main dining room for small groups or business meetings. You're going to love it!
