Both their bagels and their muffins are delicious! I just like their bagels with one of the many flavored cream cheeses. I used to take the tin can with the mini muffins to the Memory Care Unit that my mother-in-law was in for a while. They were such a hit. BAB makes many different flavors of both their large and...

Excellent bagels, superior coffee, and service with a big ol' Texan smile. Quick breakfasts don't get much better than this.

My husband had business meetings in San Antonio so I tagged along. While he has been working I have been exploring and found this place the first morning we were here. They have a great low calorie strawberry smoothie! (I was proud of myself for resisting my urge to order a strawberry cheesecake jumbo muffin which was tempting me!)

So, working at a hotel, I usually try my hardest to not write bad reviews about anything. I stop in if not everyday, every other day for a bagel ranchero sandwich and an iced coffee. They usually take their time to ensure that everything is nice and tasty for me to enjoy before a hard day at work but today... More

Super friendly service and the bagels taste great too. We ordered a few things from breakfast and the lady forgot my coffee. I went up to the person and asked about my coffee. He was so so sorry. I said no problem people forget some times. He asked me if I would like a free muffin I told him no... More

Great sandwiches. The quality and variety of muffins and bagels is first rate. The prices are family friendly too. We were able to get a hearty brunch for everyone at one place. I'm going back this morning.

We needed a light breakfast after to many delicious meals out in San Antonio. We stopped down the street from our hotel at Big Apple Bagels. The food was better than most fast food, and the coffee tasty. The place was obviously a family endeavor, which was refreshing to support. We enjoyed our only "fast food" stop in the city.

We were tired of hotel breakfasts so we stopped here. We had breakfast bagel sandwiches with coffee and some delicious mini muffins. It was well worth the trip and the little "library" out front is adorable.
