Each time we come to Largs with our Grandaughter we always pop in to The Bagel Basket, great food, friendly staff and a very pleasant atmosphere, cannot fault the team on anything. The owners roll their sleeves up and tend to the daily working of the cafe, keep up the great work everybody we'll be back again and again.........

We popped in here when my husband spotted stories on the menu. They reminded him of his Mum so he bought the rest of them and took them home in a bucket. Amazing place with such kind, friendly staff. I would highly recommend the Bagel Basket for Excellent food and great service

Reasonable friendly service, not always the fastest but always polite with a smile and always aim to please. Have had a couple of "misfires" where you order something and something else arrives, but never had anything I did not like all food I have been served has been of excellent quality. If we are looking for ice cream yes we... More

First visit to this cafe in several years and impressed at the changes by the present owners. I really like the art work of vintage local street scenes and this adds to the atmosphere which is friendly and busy. Delicious, fresh and well cooked food served. Good selection of sandwiches, panini as well as main dishes. Outside seating in good... More

There was 6 of us including 2 small children. The gentleman couldn't have been more helpful as he joined 2 tables for us so we could sit together plus it was very busy. We placed our orders and when they came he said "the children's hot chocolate has more milk so they burn themselves". It also came in cups with... More

Saw the 'Best Cafe' banner and dropped in for coffee and a cake despite the rather utilitarian look. The furniture is very basic and somewhat worn out, hardly comfortable- school cafeteria style would best describe it. The menu tells you to order at the counter. The coffee wasn't all that good, the scone was fine. In summer the outside seating... More
