The atmosphere is great, but can be deceiving on the first impression, doesn't look too fancy. But then the service, the owner himself genuinely enjoying serving you and sharing his work, and the bagels me and my girlfriend got were the best ones I've ever had! Wish I lived in Largs so I could eat at this place more often!

Have visited The Bagel Basket several times recently and enjoyed their food and coffee. They have an extensive menu with plenty of food to choose from. Their cappuccino is really good. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Dogs are allowed in too. There is outside seating which is lovely on a really nice day.

On our way home after weekend in Largs and passed this café. Saw the awards they had won and decided to try a coffee and cake and was very pleased with the food and drink. Homemade cake was excellent and the coffee was everything I had hoped for. Just wished that this café was in the small town I live... More

We were about to brave sitting outside as we had our dog with us, the owner then came out to invite us inside. He then went even further by moving tables together to provide additional space as we had our 14 month son with us. Both owners were really friendly & accommodating with all customers without been over familiar. Our... More

Stopped in for some lunch and was impressed that everything is home made. I got the carrot and corriander soup and cajun chicken wrap combo. Was impressed with the cajun chicken as there was lots of it in the wrap and it was hot and spicy. The service is the best I had in a long time, from the lady... More

Many thanks for your very kind words. My wife and I were eating out one day and had the cajun toast was very disappointed as the place had made no effort and just put spices into mayo, not very nice. Kind regards Stewart More

Visited today with my 5 year old son and staff could not have done more to help us get the perfect lunch. Kids can have smaller portion of anything on menu but my wee one wanted the wee plater of ham, chicken, cucumber, tomato, cheese and crisps. I had a toasted BLT- lovely bread and the crispest bacon. Will certainly... More

Many thanks, I was shocked one day when two customers were sitting outside in the cold and when I asked them if they wanted to come inside with their buggies they were surprised that you could bring buggies in as they were asked to leave from another cafe. We have plenty room to make all children welcome. kind regards Stewart More

This was one of my dad's favourite places for lunch in Largs and my mum and I continue to go for their filled rolls especially. The cakes are also very good. Staff are very pleasant and efficient. There is a disabled toilet that is good for access using a walker.
