SF Weekly's Description

Want a great East Coast-style bagel on the West Coast, but you're tired of hearing "Fuggedaboutit"? Well, House of Bagels has been baking Brooklyn-style bagels from scratch every morning since 1962. Try one of its signature schmears like lox and onion, sun-dried tomato with basil, or strawberry. And if you're not in the mood for circular bread, there's a whole New York deli menu featuring reubens, chopped liver, and pastrami sandwiches. We recommend trying them on the house-baked rye or challah breads. House of Bagels is definitely good for a nosh.

    Too many so-called bagels sold in San Francisco are more like savory doughnuts: squishy, soft, altogether anemic. But the real chewy N.Y.-style boiled-water bagels are still in fashion at House of Bagels, an unimpressive-looking deli that offers an impressive lineup of food in addition to its baked goods. The bagels are available in many flavors: plain, poppyseed, sesame, onion,... More >>

    As a New Yorker, I have to say our bagels are better. However, this place is still worth a visit. It's pretty good

    Though not a bad place, it's really not made of bagels. AT ALL. It's just normal drywall and such.

    Good bagels, slow service -- old guy in line (before storming out): "I was a young man when I came in!" (Made me feel like I was back in NYC.)

    owners took the tip option off of the credit card slips, so be sure to bring a couple bucks in cash

    The Brothers Reuben is totally delicious!
