Anyone who says the Bay Area doesn’t have good bagels has never been to Beauty’s. This Temescal spot specializes in wood-fired, Montreal-style bagels that are crispy, chewy, and come with your choice of spreads like chopped liver and hummus. Beauty’s is also walking distance from the MacArthur BART Station, so you can meet your friend here for an everything bagel with lox cream cheese before doing Temescal Alley-type things up the street, like scoring a 100-page book on the medicinal properties of fermented air plants.
