Kind of doughy bagels but the service is fast and the people are great! A few places to eat inside but primarily for takeaway.

As a NY native I have been able to have some pretty good bagels. Izzys comes close to NY style with a bit of California added in to boot. The bagels themselves are soft and doughy on the inside with a nicely toasted outer crust. I especially like the multiseed option that combines poppy and sesame seeds. The California flavor... More

Went there with the family for breakfast bagels and coffee. Got a cinamin raisin with cream cheese and jelly - it was warm and delious. They had Everything bagels and a few other types. Very tight on sit down space - better to grab and go.

Good food, the only Kosher place in town. Breakfast burritos are very tasty. Bean salad and eggplant salads are excellent.

I would love to own a cute place like this. What an extensive menu - lots to choose from, priced right and everything centers around the plain old bagel.

I was steered to this place as soon as I moved here from the east coast and it never lets me down. They do a brisk business so there are often lines that move quickly and the bagels are hot! The best time to come is in the morning, they throw out whatever is left in the afternoon. Families tend... More

There are good bagels and then there are great bagels. The location of this little shop is central to almost everything in Palo Alto. These great bagels can be found just off El Camino Real on Cal Ave., thus making them a popular stop for people on Cal trans as well as Stanford students. The spreads are fantastic.

Izzy's quite simply makes the best bagel in the Bay area. The bagels are crusty and chewy. There are many varieties. The Gourmet Lox Special is great! (I always ask for them to go light on cream cheese but the staff appear to be a little challenged in this department, as if they don't really believe anyone would truly want... More
