Had a plain bagel with cream cheese today. I was informed not to toast it since they were "still warm". Not only was it not still warm, it tasted old. While crispy, it was quite dense and tough, small, and much too much cream cheese for the bagel's size. The cream cheese also wasn't salted enough or flavorful. For $2.65, that's the last one I'll be having.
duuuuuuude, give me a break. Six 5 star reviews in 2 days? all from first time reviewers?? The names are creative, i'll give you that. I have seen your store and i do intend to come by, but these fake reviews that read like advertisements make you look desperate
The Bagel Shop is a great addition to the Charleston Market. Now I'm from the South, but bottom line this is good food. Cinnamon raisin bagels with some cream cheese is awesome. It's not just the bagels, the sandwiches are sooo good as well. I will be a frequent customer.
I was in town from NYC for 3 days. I dropped into the Bagel Shop on my first mornng in Charleston and was back for 3 more meals. Their bagels and sandwiches were as good, if not better than any plave I frequent at home. I'll be back!!
YAY! A bagel shop in Charleston that is actually open on a Sunday! The bagels were awesome and I LOVE LOVE LOVE their homemade olive cream cheese. The Everything bagel I had definately had everything on it - garlic, poppy seeds, sesame, a littel salt - just like I like it!
I haven't been able to get by for lunch but the sandwich menu was very appealing with a broad variety of sandwiches. I even noticed a couple of vegetarian options which means ALL of my friends would have a choice if we ate lunch there.
The owners were there when I stoppped by and they were so friendly and welcoming.
I am so thankful for a local, family owned business that I can support. I'd definately give them a try ( or two, or three...)
Ran in to grab some lunch on opening day, had the veggie wrap which was outstanding, my husband had the portobella caprese which was also terrific. We are both vegetarians and were expecting a struggle to find fresh, healthy choices for our lunch, but we were very pleasantly surprised by the options. Looking forward to our next opportunity to dine there.
I love the Bagel Shop. The quality of the food and coffee speaks for itself, delicious. I agree with previous reviewer about ordering kinks and lack of menus but attribute that to it being new. I went opening week and have been back since and have seen improvement. The staff has been friendly and helpful in my experience. I work on King St. and am thrilled to have a new breakfast and lunch spot.
I'm so happy the Bagel Shop is finally open, I've been in almost everyday. The bagels are outstanding, crisp outside and chewy inside, definitely the best around by far. I've had the everything, multigrain, and cinnamon raisin bagels and the blueberry and sundried tomato cream cheese and have loved it all. The sandwiches I've tried have also been exceptional, the turkey panini, shrimp wrap and chicken salad have been excellent and I'm looking forward to trying others. The Bagel Shop was much needed in Charleston and I will be a frequent customer.
My wife and I went to the Bagel Shop this morning to give it a whirl in hopes of a good bagel place downtown. Having to drive over the connector to James Island is inconvenient sometimes. Here is my review: Bagels were just okay. The everything bagel didn't have much "everything" on it and my wife's sesame bagel didn't have 1 sesame seed on it, which I found to be odd. There cream cheese selection is outstanding and is definately homemade. This made up for the okay bagels. Now on to the service/ordering part...it was completly unorganized. I think the shape of the store has something to do with it. I had no idea where to order and there were not any menus visable. However one of the employee's saw that I looked confused and helped me out with the menu and took my order. The guy next to me got skipped by 4 or 5 customers behind him and seemed confused as well. My order came out fairly quick so I was off. I wish I had tasted my coffee before I left becasue it was luke warm. Coffee needs to be piping hot...not warm.
Overall, the bagels are better than any other bagel downtown, but not as good as Bagel Nation (or whatever its called now) on James Island. I'll give them an exception on the service since they just opened and hopefully will work out that kink.
This place is terrific. I moved here from NYC...and this is the closest to B&H outside the city. The bagels are made in house - fresh, and the selection is plentiful. AND they'll grill them, make egg sandwiches etc. They also have sandwiches but don't do dinner. Coffee is great.
Just don't go here for a romantic rondezvous - the atmosphere is more diner-like than cozy.
