Lunch options include gourmet sausage "bagel dogs," a selection of salads and hot and cold deli sandwiches piled with pastrami, corned beef and lox.
Decent bagels, so-so location.
It's very difficult to park nearby, even early in the morning. Santa Cruz is such a cute town, its nice to be able to relax and people-watch from the tables. I'm a huge fan of their potato peppercorn bagel with sun-dried tomato and basil schmear. They have odwalla orange juice which always works. Great breakfast place!
This is a good place to get breakfast. I like getting the bagels there (for obvious reasons): I like the hummus spread the best. But, parking can be a problem if you want to get in and out of there in a hurry. But, it's a cool place to stay and eat breakfast at. Quick, friendly service.
