Had breakfast with family to attend weekend wedding. Walked 15 min from beach area just long enough to wake up and be ready to eat. Plenty of options besides bagels and everything was very good! Reasonably priced, plenty to eat and Peet's coffee! Breakfast burritos...More

I've come here for years for breakfast. It's great - big portions, fresh, good ingredients, very reliable, excellent service. I recently met a friend for lunch, and tried the Milpas Panini. Holy cow that's good! Hand-carved tri tip, chipotle sauce, and a bunch of other...More

Santa Barbara is not New York and a great bagel is hard to find in this town. Jack's Bagels is good enough and gets the job done. Nothing fancy about this place but it works well enough

We had a great family brunch/lunch here. Their soup of the day was absolutely delicious and their eggs were yummy.
