Good place to have a cup of coffee

The shopping center where this Einsteins is located and usually busy in the early morning. Lines are long, layout of the store is difficult for customers and staff. There always appears to be a sense of urgency by the staff, not in a service way, but rather how they operate as a team. This... read more

Einstein's Bagels proved that these bread items for breakfast can not only be tasty, but fresh and filling until lunch. They are designed so that you can select from multiple fresh bagels, 12 always brings a baker's dozen, different smears, juices, and a card that on your third use gets you another free dozen. These are great as take outs... More

We get our weekly supply of bagels from their store in the Del Mar Heights Shopping Center. The bagels are always fresh and very tasty. It is a popular place and thus often crowded.

There is a little shop down on the pier around the corner from the Mission Bay Hyatt where you can get breakfast sandwiches and great coffee. Very well staffed and nice walk along the pier.

Visited here several years ago and never forgot how much I enjoyed this place. Was thrilled to discover it was still in operation. Every town should have a shop like this, super coffee, desserts and bagels. Prices are normal and the coffee cup is bottomless. Friendly staff to help you decide on what you want. Cafeteria style service, so be... More

Confusing service, too foo foo and their basic product bagels taste too much like cake. I like Garden City Bagels best in this new world of fast bagel making. Was in the one in UTC and I am not sure I would go back. Coffee is better too in the Starbucks next door and the service is much better.

The coffee and bagels were great always!. The place is very close, actually on the hotel grounds. I also had an egg/bagel sandwitch, very good too.

I really enjoy a classic, real bagel once in a while. Einstein's regular water bagels are very satisfying with excellent lox, cream cheese, tomatoes and onions. Just fabulous. The coffee was very good too. Can't be beat unless you happen to be in NYC!
