“Memories of Being Back in Brooklyn”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Okay, so maybe Charleston isn't Brooklyn (which is probably a good thing), but the bagels at this place are pretty darn good nevertheless, not fake round pieces of bread like at so many places, but yummy doughy inside with nice skins on them, so chewy that, well, they might rip the caps and crowns right off of your teeth. Now, I didn't actually see the round little buggers being boiled and then baked, like you do at some real bagel joints, but they sure tasted right. I bought a baker's dozen of them, including four with everything that could be smelled ten yards away, plus some containers of cream cheese, including one with real live lox. Having to hike a mile to the home where we were staying and figuring that I might eat a couple on the way, lest I remain famished, I also ordered one of their breakfast sandwiches - egg, ham and cheese - and munched on it on the walk back. It was outstanding, but I should have gotten a permission slip from my cardiologist first. Yummy. So: service is great, the bagel selection and quality is great, the sandwiches are fresh and delicious, and the place is conveniently located right off King Street. White tableclothes? Forget about it. My photos? Come on, who takes pictures of bagels?

“Great bagel sandwiches!”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We stopped here during a recent visit to Charleston and were very satisfied when we left. We got bagel sandwiches that, as other reviewers have said, were stuffed to the brim with egg and cheese (we didn't get any meat). The staff were friendly and hardworking. It was very busy in there because it was a Sunday morning, but the staff got our meals out quickly. The Bagel Shop is pretty close to the College of Charleston, so there were a bunch of college students there. The lunch menu looked great, so we plan on heading back to try the lunch the next time we're in town!

Stopped here for breakfast one morning and very much enjoyed our bagel sandwiches. They were good sized bagels with plenty of meat and egg/cheese.

“Breakfast on the Cheap in Charleston!”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Great for a morning bagel or quick breakfast. Breakfast for three of us was under $20! Awesome!! (Especially since our other breakfasts were over $40 for traditional, sit down breakfasts.)

Easy location, tasty food, great service.

Cheery and efficient staff!

Highly Recommended.

“Very good bagel shop - reminds of NY bagels”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

We went here and was surprised by how delicious the bagels were. The taste was very similar to NY, in fact I actually liked these better than the ones I get back in NY as they were a little softer and easier to choose. Between an omelette and bagel and a large coffee and hot cocoa the bill came to $11 which I thought was quite reasonable. The employees were very friendly and appeared to enjoy their jobs which was nice to see as well. Overall two thumbs up, would definitely come back.
