Reliably fresh bagels baked on the premises next door to the shop. Cragels - the cross between a bagel and a croissant- are their specialty.

We got bagels from there and they weren't the greatest bagels on earth but neither the worst ones. The lady behind the counter was friendly. It's nice that they open relatively early.

While these aren't to the level of NYC, they are top of the line for SF. A little heavy but decent flavor.More

As we aim to bring Brooklyn-style bagels to SF, it's disappointing we didn't exactly meet NY's level for you. Still, we are glad you enjoyed the bagels overall. Hope we'll have a chance to welcome you back next time you're in the area. Sincerely, Jenny...More

A small place with great bagels and accompanying cheese and other items. Always fresh and carried in many grocery stores. Worth a trip when you need a bigger quantity.

This little place has been around for years, I used to come and pick up pastry for my coworkers when I worked at the SF VA in the 90's and just went in today simply for a bagel, and the place has not changed much....More

In a city with great examples of almost any cuisine one could name, why is it so difficult to get a _real_ bagel anywhere except House of Bagels? An East cost transplant gains many things by moving to The City, but an abundant supply of...More

We noticed the place while waiting for a bus and decided to check it out. The garlic bagel with cream cheese was delicious! We recommend!

This place makes bagels the "Old Fashioned way" by boiling them in water. They have a terrific selection of all types of bagels as well as many Jewish Pastries. If you are watching your cholesterol, don't bother. Otherwise, you will be in heaven.More

Thanks so much for the five-star review! I'm so happy to hear you enjoy our authentic bagels. Like you said, we make them the original East Coast way -- boiling and then baking them on stone. I hope you'll come back to bagel heaven soon!...More

Traditional New York style bagels served with a smile; House of Bagels, San Francisco is where hungry San Franciscans go for a great breakfast, lunch and snack! We bake our delicious bagels from scratch every day, creating artisan breads (like fresh challahs and rye), traditional cookies (like hamentashen, black and white cookies, rugalah and Russian tea cakes), as well as everyone's favorite cookies and pastries (the best chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies around, bear claws, cheese pockets, etc.) with a New York flair. Our selection of baked goods, sandwiches, salads and beyond guarantee there is something on the menu for everyone!
