We came here almost every morning during 3 week stay for coffee and bagels. Very relaxing sitting outside, beautiful view of city. Customer service is great.

It's rare that a 4 or 5 circle review on trip advisor lets me down. But that's what happened here. For me atmosphere is pretty important to the experience and somewhere between the guy taking my order who seemed like he was having a bad year,the framed picture of the bikini island nuclear bomb tests, and being crammed in there...

We usually visit the Bagel Shack whenever we are in San Clemente. July 3 was no exception. Lots of people enjoying the bagels, drinks and bagel sandwiches in a laid back beachy atmosphere.

LOVE the fresh, chewy, tasty bagels and fresh squeezed OJ at Bagel Shack. Hard to park in the little lot behind the store, but often times the owner will come out and help direct traffic to get cars in and out.
