Today was the 2nd time I’ve visited Way Beyond Bagels. I let the first visit go un-reviewed, but today it’s time to leave a review. The first visit with my entire family I listened to the manager (in front of everybody) curse, swear & demean...the employees. It definitely was an extremely awkward experience & I can say I’ve never seen so many miserable/demeaning employees / managers in one establishment. Now the second time today, I walk in to realize it’s mandatory to wear a mask so I stepped out..I did not have a mask so I was reading the menu with the door slightly open so I could have my mom go in & place an order…the entire staff immediately attacked me yelling to shut the door, etc. It seems that everybody who works here is just outright miserable, probably stems from the management down. Both times I’ve seen mistreatment of either the staff or customers. WAY BEYOND MISERABLE should be the name of this spot I am a Boca resident & 100% do NOT recommend ever stepping foot in this place. Way too many breakfast spots to settle for here.More

Bagels were excellent. Service was just fine, in fact given what I was expecting considering many reviews, it was actually quite good. Coffee was ok, large selection of anything that you wanted from lunch to pastries. Every New Yorker in Delray was there!

I stopped in for a bagel shortly after they opened. Not yet busy. I had a bagel with cream cheese. It was quite good. The coffee was just okay. No atmosphere.

We had lunch here and thought the bagels were tasty and soft. They are doing well with Covid precautions. They only let 6 into the store at a time and have a line outside the restaurant. There are tables set up outside which was perfect....The honey walnut cream cheese was really good. I got it on a toasted sesame bagel and really enjoyed it. I could've eaten the cream cheese with a spoon! It was a little on the expensive side for bagels. My husband had an egg bagel with cream cheese, red onion and lox and it was $13? Seems a bit much! Overall we did enjoy the bagels, but feel they are a little overpriced. They had a lot of other things to choose from, but we only had bagels this time.More

First tried this store on 441; bagel was not baked well and the toppings were slopped on without care. It was not good. We threw it away. It's a few weeks later, I'm hungry want something quick and see this shop on Jog. I'll give...it another try. Some seating outside. The customers are all old and so unhappy. Is it the food? The interior is dark. Not one single friendly greeting, nobody looks up. It's the gloomiest eatery I've ever seen. I order. The woman taking my order seems to hate her job. I overhear a very old lady complaining to anyone and everyone about another customer She's complaining the customer isn't wearing a mask, but she is. Very weird. The middle age male manager or whatever his role is tries to tell the customer to put on a mask. He does this before even bothering to notice she is already wearing a mask. What a dope. He tries to cover up his idiocy by saying she needs to move it higher. Is this why the line takes so long - because this dope is policing the placement of masks? Ironically, his mask kept falling down as he tried to intervene in the lunacy. She's wearing a mask waiting for a bagel. Let her alone. This place is dreary; it's like the twilight zone. The customer left. I don't blame her. I won't be back either. Bagels With Deli on Federal has much better food anyway.More

Good spot for a sandwich or prepared foods, salads. Needed a morning bite so ordered a bagel w/cream cheese after stopping next door for my coffee. Was good. Place is definitely pricey. Friendly service.

Visited during covid and this place is bare bones to the max! No table service, stacked up chairs like a warehouse. There was a young woman shrilling at the cash register if someone dares let their mask slip. At one point, two or three staffers...were screaming at one man. Nobody seems to know prices, so more yelling back and forth to get answers. The menu board is very confusing. No breakfast sides are available other than what is in the deli case. Very unfriendly and disorganized atmosphere. On the plus side, the food was tasty. It’s too bad the minuses overshadowed this fact for us. First and last time!More

The total experience is very good but not excellent. The food is excellent, the staff is professional. But the ordering of the food , Picking it up and then paying for it at this crowded location is not a pleasant experience. There appear to be...no refills on ☕️???More

The staff is extremely rude, including the manager. Visited on Tuesday. There was a sign stating they were closing at 2pm instead of 3pm. Walked in at 1:15pm and it was packed. No one around to seat us - no one paying attention to us....We found the only available table and sat down. Again, we were ignored, flagged down a waitress who said in a nasty voice "I see you," and gave us menus. They took an order from the table next to us. Then the manager came to our table and asked if we sat ourselves. We said yes because no one was around. He tells us the kitchen is closed, and they're not going to serve us. Add insult to injury, he yells it out so alot of other people heard. No one could believe it. He didn't even tell us that we could order a sandwich that didn't need to be made in the kitchen. We went over to him to let him know, but he was just RUDE as some other staff which we experienced from going in the past. We won't be going back and will be sure to let everyone know about our experience.More
