I love The Bagelry! They have many choices of bagels made on the premises. They even offer gluten free which is important in this day and age. The spreads are so far reaching and too numerous to mention, but in a word, deelish! It's possible to have them toasted or not, each half with a different topping, to stay or... More

We are in our way down high way 1 so it was just a half days stop at Santa Cruz. I wanted to show my 3 kids what real bagels can taste like and I couldn't have done it at a better place. I and my son ordered Lox deluxe and it was excellent in its simplicity. My other 2... More

This is one of the several places in Santa Cruz that we never miss when we're in town. A terrific variety of bagels and options for topping them. There's often a line, but it moves fast and it's worth the wait.

I'm not even very into bagels, but this place is a game changer. Cheese Louise, tofu tom and the sundried tomato cc are the way to go! Be prepared for rancid garlic breath after!!

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.
