Bagel Boyz, the popular bagel shop on Via Princessa, has quietly opened a second location near Valencia High School on Newhall Ranch Road.

Lance Takao, a veteran of front-of-house/restaurant management with Restaurants Unlimited (Kincaid’s in Redondo Beach, the former Palomino in Westwood) as well as Togo’s, took over the original Bagel Boyz location in 2017. He opened this second location last week (Jan. 21) in the former First Serve Tennis storefront.

The bagels are made fresh daily at the Via Princessa store, and served at both outposts. Takao says that from the 20 or so varieties they make, Santa Claritans love the jalapeño cheese and everything bagels the most.

Bagel Boyz’s sandwiches are just as in-demand. Takao says their top-seller is the Chipotle Breakfast, made with an egg and sausage on a jalapeño cheese bagel smeared with jalapeño cream cheese and chipotle sauce. (If you like breakfast with a kick, this tasty sandwich is definitely for you).

And the bagels aren’t just for breakfast either. There’s a whole array of lunch sandwiches with pastrami, ham, turkey, chicken, tuna and chicken salad. Pizza bagels are also on the menu for those who want hot fare. And there’s salads.

But let’s be real, if you head to Bagel Boyz, skip the salad and try their chewy, tasty bagels that pair perfectly with cream cheese or eaten alone.

For the month of February, if you mention their flyer at the new location, customers can partake in these grand opening specials:

  • Buy a dozen bagels, get a dozen free;
  • Buy a bagel sandwich, get a second one free; or
  • Buy one bagel, get one free.

If you’re a student or faculty/teacher at one of the local schools, then ask for the School Special—any sandwich (except lox) plus a fountain drink—for $5.
