Better than any other bagel places in Monterey. The multi-seed is my personal fave, but they've got a great spectrum. Excellent lox and cream cheese...from salmon to chicken to chicken salad to roast beef and all the extras are available. The current owners kept the quality but it's not quite as 'tidy' as it could be. Nevertheless, a quality fast... More

The BEST by far, friendly, fresh and perfectly made, unpretentious place. Always a smile and generous courteous family business. Hard workers and reasonably priced.

We stopped in here as an alternative to having a sit down breakfast in one of the larger restaurants. They had several different options for things you could get on a bagel,burrito, or croissant. The bread all appeared to be fresh, but everything else is prepared in the microwave. This includes the eggs, the bacon, and the potatoes. I noticed... More

My office is nearby and I make a weekly visit. The food is excellent, the service even better and the staff very friendly. Prices are reasonable and there is a great variety of bagels available.

Interesting range of fairly tasty bagel sandwiches, a bit pricey for what they are, even in this area. They'll sometimes even charge you to toast the bagel. Not well kept up, in comparison to the better Pacific Grove store of the same name. Tables/floors/bathroom should be cleaned more often, yet have never experienced any digestive problem. Service and staff attitude... More

It's funny about the Bagel Bakery spots. Are they all a chain? Each one of them varies widely in service, spreads, freshness of the bagel,variety choice, etc. Anyway the one on Carmel Rancho is sort of middle of the road. The spreads can be very skimpy, or big. It's kind of hard to know in advance which you will get.... More
