Only had a couple of take away Latte's from Bagels and Brew but the coffee and service were both excellent. The coffee shop looked like a great place to sit and watch the world go by too but had no time to do this.

Stopped here en route to Alberta and found this gem! Great value for lunch as the portions are just right and lots of variety of paninis, wraps, salads, breakfast. Coffee was superb using Os Negro coffee. The barista seemed a little distracted and was having troubles with orders but the other staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely stop here... More

Stopped to get a coffee and got a toasted bagel. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Seems to be a favorite place with locals as well. Will have to stop again.

From meeting friends for a cup of jo to stopping for lunch, everything is fresh and homemade. Good variety of coffees and teas and have one of the best fresh salads in town. Prices are reasonable.

Bagels & Brew has been one of Castlegar's longest established coffee houses, and it survives on good quality coffee, food and service. Even after moving between stripmalls, it continues to outshine other more recent arrivals. I always enjoy going in for a cup and a muffin.

Bagels and Brew is a wonderful place to go when you're craving a satisfying, homestyle meal, and don't have 2 hours to spend sitting down at a full-on restaurant. Everything is fresh, hot, and made lovingly to order.

I have eaten here several times. I can get gluten free so I like it. It has a fair ambience and although sometimes it is a little messy and chaotic feeling, I don't mind it one bit.
