The last time I was here was over 20 years ago. The bagels come with a great variety of toppings. My brother's favorite is the Moxy, served with cream cheese, chopped black olives and green onion. My mom likes the Duke, served with cream cheese, raw cashews and marmalade.

This is a Santa Cruz institution, with three locations around the county. Classic, steamed bagels are served with about a dozen toppings (hummus, del fuego, fandango, egg salad, god my mouth is watering and it's not even breakfast...) They also have a wide selection of trendy juices from the local area (Odwalla) and strong, delicious coffee. The Bagelistas vary in... More

This is a cool little stop in Santa Cruz. It's especially good if you don't want the big breakfast thing, but still has a very nice, dog friend,y outdoor eating area. Reasonably priced, and good bagels for the west coast with interesting toppings.

This is my mother's favorite breakfast spot. She has moved away and when she visits, we go here first. A favorite is "The Duke" with fresh jam and cashews. Great variety and fantastic bagels!

I love the Bagelry. It has all the basics a good Bagelry should have like walnut spreads or vegie sandwiches. There's plenty of seating inside and out. HOWEVER!! Parking is a problem! So make this a walking stop when you're downtown Santa Cruz or take the bus or bike.

Every year I meet my family up here, and The Bagelry is on my list of places I must visit. When they opened in the seventies, I would ride my bike down Seabright to spend my babysitting money on a toasted poppyseed with cream cheese and apricot jam. 35 years later, and the same order gives me exactly the same...

There is a reason that this Bagel place is voted in the top three bagel shops in the bay area repeatedly. The House of Bagels usually nudges it out for top spot but I don't think I would be able to tell them apart if I had two garlic bagels on a plate in front of me. They are both... More
