We enjoyed having a taste of home while on our trip to Costa Rica. The bagels were a little dry that day, but had great gourmet sandwich options and toppings. A decent quick bite for the price on your walk into town center.

I was very excited to find bagels in San Jose. However, most of the menu is drastically overpriced and the food quality and authenticity leave something to be desired.

In 2009 was the first year I had tried bagelmans and it was a great place to grab breakfast or enjoy a nice healthy lunch. It wasn't extremely expensive but not cheap either. All the bagels are pretty much exact same price but it always...More

Although they have established a good brand name I must say that the food does not taste as good as before. Service is mediocre and slow, price too high.

It isn't bad, just not someplace I would regularly go. The quality of the food is not consistent, and they take the fast out of fast food.

I eat at Bagleman's for breakfast or occasionally lunch several times a year. It has a pleasant ambiance, excellent New York style bagels, free wi-fi, and great bagel sandwiches of all sorts. Prices are quite reasonable. It is also quiet enough for breakfast business meetings.

Staff is pleasant and the bagles are always fresh and hot. Great coffee selection as well. I prefer the one in Belen right across the street from Panosonic.

The salads were ok, but the bagels seemed to come from frozen, not fresh made. Sandwiches were average. Nothing special.

My girlfriend had the best meal of her trip here (the mediterranean salad), and I had the worst of mine(the "californian" bagel)
