Stopped in for a light breakfast yesterday and got a bagel sandwich with egg, bacon and cheese. Can't go wrong with this combo. Really good bagel, chewy and fresh. Waitstaff very friendly and efficient. Nice outdoor seating. Not overly expensive. Worth a visit if you are in Carpinteria. I will definitely be coming back.

Great breakfast/lunch spot with all the classics and nice atmosphere and service. Both indoor and comfortable outdoor seating available.

Highly recommend the bagel breakfast sandwiches for take-out, too!

Chose to go here due to the amount of people sitting outside while other places were nearly empty. Had a tuna sandwhich, which was huge and should have been great except for the fact that the tuna was REALLY dry. My dining partner got the same thing and commented upon the same thing. We could have split the lunch through, so good value, just rather unimpressed at their tuna mix which seemed to have nothing in it. Bread and other fillings excellent and fresh. Went again for breakfast, had your standard pancakes, again nothing special.

Overall good value - atmosphere just okay, not a place you want to linger - would frankly just eat a quick breakfast here or get take out lunch....good for kids though. Both indoor and outdoor seating.

Jack's Famous Bagels is located in a former bank building in Carpinteria. They offer both outdoor and indoor seating. I was with a party of 4 and there was no outdoor seating, so we were seated inside and were not disappointed. The building has character and there are lots of windows. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. It was recommended to us to get the Blackstone Benedict and 2 people in our party did order it. It's an amped up version of eggs benedict, served on a bagel of your choice. Both people loved it. I ordered the chorizo burrito and it was delicious! Mine came with homestyle fries that were also delicious. We also got a bagel on the side, to eat later. It was the jalapeno cheese bagel. This bagel did not disappoint but beware,...if you are sensitive to spicy food this may not be for you. The jalapenos were very hot but I loved it.
