Nice, simple little bagels shop. On the down side, no Pumpernickel. On the up side, one of the few places in Santa Cruz that still provides free WiFi.

Most tasty and creative options, and real, homemade chai (not from concentrate!).... Love it and will always go back!

They have been true to the idea of authentic boiled bagels for decades! A real bagel bakery! Nice patio for dinning!

There was so many different type of flavors, from cream cheese to bagels. I grabbed a menu and stood back a while. I ended up sharing 2 and fell in love with the toasted plain bagel and sun dried tomato basil cream cheese! The outside seating is limited but so worth the seat hunting.

Bagels were very fresh but on the small size. There are many unique and tasty toppings to choose from. Staff was friendly, down-to-earth and accommodating. Prices were reasonable. Good stop for a quick bite to eat in this fun place to visit.

You really can't get a great bagel in Santa Cruz - you need to go to NYC for that - but the Bagelry has the best bagels in town. The bagels are nice and hard (boiled), as opposed to others in town that are just round bread with a hole in the middle. They have a wide range of flavors,... More

The Bagelry is an iconic Santa Cruz institution. They have many innovative bagels and dozens of spreads. You can mix and match your spreads according to your desire. The soups are good and they always have a vegan/non-dairy choice which is great. It's an inexpensive healthy fast food alternative and an all around great meeting spot. Did I mention the... More

I love this place and always get top-notch service! You tell the person who's going to make your bagel what you want and pay that person. Easy, simple and quick. I come here in the morning before work and am in and out within 3-4 minutes. Their egg salad is very good and every spread I have tried is great.
