A local bagel shop is always the best place to find a fresh bagel. When you buy local, you’re getting the freshest products and helping the local economy.

On National Bagelfest Day this year—July 26—celebrate by stopping by a local bagel shop in Yorba Linda and pick up a bagel for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Here are some local bagel shops in Riverside to support:

Avalon Bagels to Burgers 

For more than 15 years, Avalon Bagels to Burgers has been a go-to local bagel shop in Orange County. It offers nearly two dozen varieties of bagels, from plain to energy bar and everything in between. It also has a wide range of cream cheese options, including plain, lox, and jalapeño. In addition to bagels, Avalon offers sandwiches for breakfast and lunch (on bagels, of course), burgers, smoothies, coffee, and more.

Yelp user Shana A. writes, “Writing this review as I am having one of their amazing Cheese Everything bagels (what I look forward to waking up to). I love the variety Avalon’s menu has to offer.”

Avalon Bagels to Burgers takes online orders on its website, so it’s quick and easy to satisfy your bagel craving.

YLS Bakery & Cafe 

YLS Bakery & Cafe, which opened in 2016, already is a favorite local bagel shop and doughnut bakery. It serves various bagels, from chocolate chip (for those of us who like a little something sweet with our breakfast) to jalapeño cheese (for customers who want a spicy kick in the morning). Bakers make everything fresh every morning at the Yorba Linda location. In addition to the bagels and doughnuts, the bakery is well known for its coffee and healthy beverages.

“The garlic bagel and the jalapeño cheese bagel are DELICIOUS,” Paige K. writes on Yelp. “They are very fast to prepare as well, even with COVID precarious. The blueberry doughnut is the perfect old fashioned cake doughnut—not too sweet, which is nice. I can’t wait to try more items!”

Customers can order on the bakery’s app for an easy to-go breakfast or lunch. Download the app here.

Grumpy’s Donuts & Bagels

Another place to get your fix on National Bagelfest Day is Grumpy’s Donuts & Bagels. With sweet and savory options alike, this bakery will satisfy every member of the household.

“I love this hidden gem! The best egg and cheese on a bagel and iced coffee! The donuts smell and taste great. They have a good selection,” says Yelp user L R.

With delicious bagel shops around Yorba Linda, there’s no excuse not to celebrate National Bagelfest Day on July 26. So stop by Avalon Bagels & Burgers, YLS Bakery & Cafe, or Grumpy’s Donuts & Bagels to commemorate the day with some carbs and support local business.
