Where to Find Actual Bagels in Austin

From the fanciful offerings at Rosen’s Bagel Co. to the corned beef, egg, and Swiss cheese sandwich at Jewish-inspired Biderman’s Deli

View as Map

For a city teeming with breakfast tacos, it might seem like Austin has a total dearth of bagel shops in town. However, that’s thankfully not entirely the case. Austin’s best bagel shops include solid offerings from heavy-hitters Rockstar Bagels and Wholy Bagel, both of which ship their bagels out to local restaurants. Then there are fanciful offerings from Rosen’s Bagel Co.’s setup at Wright Bros Brew & Brew, Jewish stylings at Biderman’s Deli (which is opening a downtown Austin location very soon), and brunch offerings from Pitchfork Pretty.

In the near future, there’s North Loop neighborhood shop Nervous Charlie’s, which should be opening soon. Until then, let these eight bagel spots hit those carb cravings.

For more breakfast needs, scope out Austin’s best breakfast restaurants, breakfast tacos, breakfast sandwiches, bakeries, pancakes, coffee shops, and more.
