    Absolutely incredible wood-fired bagels. The salt and pepper is fabulous. Staff is extremely friendly, restaurant is cute. Sea Salt Chocolate Chip cookies! Vanilla latte with housemade syrup!

    The classic with lox, cream cheese, capers and red onions is fantastic. My new go to place for bagels in the Oakland area, good even by NYC standards.

    I love the garlic or everything bagels myself. Usually get the veggie or just cream cheese and heirloom tomato. I had the fried chicken once. Amazing but more than I want on my way to work.

    With seeds enough to stock a birdhouse, these bagels also draw long lines. But those move quickly, and you'll be rewarded with the wood-fired goods before you know it. Read more

    Excellent breakfast bagel sandwich with veggie sausage and avocado, had an array of Lucky Dog hot sauces to use here. The cappuccino wasn't bad here too.

    Open-faced lox bagel (sesame) was amazing with the super fresh nova, slightly sweet bagel (boiled in honey water), and red onions that almost seemed slightly pickled. Best on the west coast!

    The open-face lox and cream cheese bagel “sandwich” just made the list of top 100 things to eat in Oakland. The vibe is great. The food is phenomenal. Read more

    Beauty's does not stop being consistent. They are almost the only place we know in CA worth it for good Bagels. They can change cheese for mustard. Just always crowded, order online in advance!

    A little bit pricey for just a bagel but the quality is there. I had a toasted sesame bagel with salmon, cream cheese, capers and optional avocado, si yummy!

    Onion bagel breakfast sandwich is a great hangover shaker. Get it with chicken sausage and watch as your name is called and it is delivered to you with melted cheddar dripping from the edges.

    Delicious wood-fired Montreal-style bagels. Order the classic on a salt and pepper bagel if it's your first time. Comes with lox, capers, red onions and cream cheese.

    Keeping it kosher in Palo Alto, the Brooklyn-style bagels are just like "back east." Izzy's is certainly worth a visit for top-notch fare. Read more

    If you want the essence of what they're all about...just get a woodfired everything bagel, take it home, cut it open, and add a little butter and you'll be in heaven.

    Classic lox & cream cheese on a poppyseed bagel is a good first timer option. Wait is longggg during the weekend lunch hour.

    Bagels are great and there's friendly service. Would love if there was an express lane. You can get a quick bite after waiting 20 minutes just to get to the register

    As a native New Yorker, gotta say that I was impressed! My everything bagel breakfast sandwich was delish.

    Totally overrated. If these are the best bagels in the bay than there's a big opportunity for someone to start a legitimately good bagel place. The bagels have no heft or substance to them.

    Pick up a fresh Montreal-style bagel--hand-rolled, boiled in honey, and baked in a wood-fire oven--with the spread or sandwich filling of your choosing.

    If you can wade through the hipsters in fanny packs, the wood fired bagels are outstanding as is the coffee.

    Fig and goat cheese scone pairs perfectly with a latte. Apricot scones are awesome too if you can get one before they sell out.

    Best bagels in the Bay Area. And this coming from a New Yorker. Get two. Small enough and tasty enough that you'll want another.
