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.

Excellent place to have breakfast in San Antonio. Fast, friendly, tasty and cheap. Coffee was very good as well and the pastries. They even showed us the kitchen and how they make the bagels. Fresh bagels every day with many flavors to choose from. I will definitely come back next time I'm in town.

I am a true New Yorker and I love my bagels. The bagels at this San Antonio bagel shop are tasty. We had breakfast here three times. I asked normally do not have my bagels toasted but outside of NYC I always toast them and these were delicious.

Bagels are freshly made throughout the day and they can make many types of delicious sandwiches bagels, cold and hot. (My favorite bagel with cream cheese, tomato and bacon). A perfect place for breakfast or lunch; conveniently located in downtown San Antonio.

The bagel was very good. The miniature cake was good. Spectacular decaffeinated coffee. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The prices were reasonable. It was near the Alamo and not far from the River Walk.
