BCB Café’s story began
more than 20 years ago…

BCB Café’s story began more than 20 years ago when two best friends, Jennifer and Kristee, had the vision to open a café in Hillcrest with tasty food and coffee drinks, friendly customer service and the best darn New York style Boiled and Baked BAGEL on the West Coast. Big City Bagel Café’s dedicated owners and staff take pride in providing the Greater San Diego area with great eats, amazing drinks, and most importantly a welcoming atmosphere where customers feel like a “regular” whether it is your first time in or your 100th!

BCB has received many awards and accolades over the years including being named San Diego Readers Best Bagel In San Diego for 2021. However, BCB Café has evolved over the years to so much more than just a local bagel shop. You can find your favorite eats and drinks all day long here. Breakfast has expanded to egg sandwiches, acai and fruit bowls, and the new fresh juice and smoothie bar is the latest addition providing many delicious healthy items. Whether you are looking for brunch, lunch or an afternoon pick me up BCB is the place to go.

Serving up chopped salads from the fresh salad bar, the most amazing sandwiches and melts on delicious breads and bagels using the best of the best Boar’s Head Meats and Cheeses to make BCB a favorite stop when you are hungry for a fantastic meal.
