We may not boast the vast amount of bagel shops that New York City does, but the South Bay definitely has its gems.

So, whether you’re looking for a hearty morning meal or want to venture to a new breakfast spot other than your trusty House of Bagels — here’s your go-to guide for local bagel shops around San Jose.

🥯 City Bagels, 52 W. Santa Clara St.

This downtown gem for those in the know offers a selection of bagels, sandwiches, and pastries — all with quick service. If you need a beverage to wash down your baked good, you can also order an iced coffee, smoothie, or boba tea. Pro tip: Stop by this shop for its discounted bags of day-old bagels.

🥯 Regal Bagel, 125 Bernal Rd.

This NY-style, family-owned bagel shop in South San Jose has been serving the community since 2001, priding itself on its traditional baking methods + savory bagel-wiches. Try this: The marinara or pesto bagel with sun-dried tomato spread.

🥯 Bagel Guys Bakery, 1702 Meridian Ave.

This spot was previously named as one of the top 5 breakfast sandwich shops in the Bay Area by the Mercury News — and for good reason. It offers some of the best locally made, specialty cragels — the delicate hybrid of a croissant and bagel.
