House of Bagels was opened in 1962 at the original location at 2nd and Geary Blvd., our famous bagel recipe having been brought here from Brooklyn, New York. In 1964, we relocated to its present location at 5030 Geary Boulevard in San Francisco. Traditional NY-style bagels have been made from scratch from the finest ingredients, boiled in water and then baked on stone for over 50 years!!!
While the name of the bakery makes it obvious that we do bagels, we also bake from scratch every day artisan breads (like fresh challahs and rye), traditional cookies (like hamentashen, black and white cookies, rugalah and Russian tea cakes), as well as everyone’s favorite cookies and pastries (the best chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies around, bear claws, cheese pockets, etc.) and CRAGELS, our newest star! In addition, we house an award winning NY-style deli, and offer seating and a rotating art gallery.
