Well for starters jwfscmtp ur dumb i was born n raised on James island bagle cafe was bagel nation but changed the same and both places here and mount p have the exact same menus! But bagel cafe is by far the best of the two and my orders are always correct and deliciousness! Unfortunately I moved to north charleston but I still make the drive just for the bagels!! Thank y'all for being the most delicious place I know!
Saturday morning bagel sandwich place to go!!! I won't go anywhere else.
Great customer service. I usually go w/ a bacon egg and pepperjack sammich. If you add an extra egg its only $.75, so that's usually my go to move. Definitely the most pricey bagel shop downtown, but by far the best.
so accommodating and friendly! the bagels are small but tasty, and they make the bagel sandwiches fresh to order (and add ingredients specially for you, if you want). the cold-pressed coffee is a nice treat as well! I definitely recommend this, such a nice atmosphere.. and take your order to the college's sculpture garden for a nice quiet setting!
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.
This is the best bagel in Charleston. Whoever is behind the baking definitely knows what they're doing and consistently cranks out perfect bagels every time. In addition to the bagels, they make all their own flavored cream cheeses in house which have all been delicious. They have a menu of amazing breakfast and lunch sandwiches or you can build your own out of their deli case. I also love that they offer Taylor Ham which I had never tried before a friend recommended it to me and now I cannot turn back. Give it a try griddled with an egg and cheese on a bagel - you will thank me. Also they offer fresh Nova lox which is nearly impossible to find at a bagel shop around here.
They have a full espresso bar as well as delicious Intelligenista house coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. The only critique I would offer is the size of the dining room is rather tiny. So if you go doing a prime time, I would probably plan on getting your food to go. But wherever you sit down to enjoy your food, you will not be disappointed!
The food is very good, but since they charge for tea refills, i don't go very often. It can get very pricey if you have a couple of refills of tea. You might as well go to lunch at Snob and get full service fine dining at the same price.
I’ve had the turkey and the ham and brie paninis and both were great
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.
Bagel Nation is dirty, I will give you that. And yes, sometimes the staff appear to be extremely busy and can be less then friendly. A few coats of paint could go a long way in this place.
However the food is good, and the coffee is even better. They offer the best bagels I have found so far in Charleston. Not sure why your eggs were so terrible. I had an egg, ham & cheese bagel for lunch today and it was delicious, as always.
Could Bagel Nation use some renovations? Absolutely.
Will that stop myself and many others from visiting frequently? Nope.
Great food! But service is lacking in terms of wait time. If 4 or more people are in the restaurant at any given time, expect a 15-20 minute wait to get your food!
I went this morning and got a cinnamon-raisin bagel with plain cream cheese and a small coffee. It was $5. The bagel was smaller than normal. The bagel wasn't very flavorful and there was enough cream cheese for 3 people on it. I had to wipe most of it off. The coffee was good, definitely comparable to other coffee shops around- although not anywhere near Modica's standards. (ok, so I'm still bummed that Modica closed). Overall, nothing wowed me, and I'm not sure if it's worth the money.
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.
The restaurant needs major overhaul with cleaning and decor. The floors are mud brown with splattered paint. The walls need the holes fixed, wiped down and repainted. The tables were dirty and covered with chicken vinyl table clothes. The servers looked like they just had gotten out of bed. The lady who took our order looked like she had been rolling around in hay. Seriously! No one was friendly or even cracked a smile. My food was not edible! I had eggs that tasted like hospital food,hashbrowns that were soggy and my bagel, which was the frazzle, had burnt onions on the bottom. It was all terrible!!
The whole place needs to be shut down, restaffed with nice people, cleaned from top to bottom and repainted!
We used to have a Bagel Nation in Summerville, many years ago, and it was wonderful! So my husband and I were excited to see there was one in Mount
Pleasant and made the effort to go there during our IOP stay. We regret it and won't be back!!
went into the bagel shop two times and ordered egg sandwiches both times they were delivered to me wrapped in tinfoil with no wax paper so the sandwiches became soggy and wet. I thought to myself if they are to cheap use wax paper i wonder what other corners their cutting. my wife received the turkey panini which came highly recommended by the staff, the sandwich came out and was cold in the middle, the turkey tasted like it had been sitting in A bucket for a few days. overall highly disatisfied, cut my losses at 15 bucks and decided that would be the last time. if your thinking about going here do yourself a favor and go to bagel nation, this place won't be around long.
