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.

The Bagelry has a great variety of bagels & toppings. The staff is friendly, and atmosphere is mellow. Good coffee, chai, and Odwalla juices. My favorites are the egg salad, and also the lox with green onions, on toasted onion bagel. Makes me hungry just thinking about it!

This is a place that can expand your flavor experience. Try the Luna, which contains ricotta cheese, pesto and almonds, on an Oatmeal-date bagel. Think that you hate tofu? The Del Fuego on a warm three-seed bagel brings combines a tofu base with chiles, black olives, sunflower seeds and more. Spicy and nutty like the town. If those combos make... More

Either down town or in Soquel, The Bagelry does not disappoint. I drive my wife nuts because I always get the same thing, tuna on a garlic bagle with green onions on top, then some Honey to top it off. I have tried the Moxie, the duke, and others which are all very good. How I miss Santa Cruz

Very consistent, good quality. Not NYC but they are actually bagels unlike some local places that make french rolls with a hole in the middle. Shmear especially the salmon is excellent.
