Best bagels in town

You won't find a better bagel in San Clemente, period. Sandwiches and breakfast foods, fresh juices and fruit. Beware, they close at 2 or 3pm at latest.

We went there for breakfast yesterday and ordered 2 lox cream cheese everything bagels. The lox cream cheese had gone bad and although that shouldn't happen, I expected at least an apology. Instead the guy took the bagels back, didn't say anything and they made 2 more. I would have preferred my money back, but was so annoyed just left.

Love the fresh bagels and the coffee was good. I held back a star because the OJ was said by the guy to be fresh squeezed and was clearly from a frozen concentrate can. Otherwise, we loved our breakfast.

the bagels are good and a nice variety. cream cheese is limited in flavors - no green olive! the ordering was a bit chaotic. My granddaughter (21) could not get her order placed quickly enough--lots of 'rush, rush' rush'.

A rad surfer hangout. Not much seating for how busy it was. Parking seemed difficult as well, but we just parked at the hotel and walked over. The bagels are amazing and they have a large selection of cream cheese. Did we mention the bagels are amazing? The have over 20 kinds to choose from at the counter, and they... More

Homemade hot bagels in every flavor made fresh. Try the jalapeno cream cheese on a toasted everything bagel, fresh OJ, great coffee. Seating outside along the boulevard with lots of local families. Always somewhat crowded but never a disappoinment. This is where we take all our visitors on the weekend.

We had breakfast here one morning. There were so many options and the service was great! There is a very laid back vibe here that makes it a nice way to start the day.

When walking into the small place and the aroma of bagels and coffee fills the air. You found something delicious, the Bagel Shack is just that. The prices are very reasonable for being at a beach town. $5+ for a bagel breakfast sandwich, smoothies where tasty and equally well priced. While the coffee was less than the cost in some... More
