Charleston Bagel Closing

As reported by WSAZ, Charleston Bagel Bakery will close its doors next Wednesday.  The owner says he’s been asked to vacate by the lessor by the end of January.

We reviewed this establishment in July, 2008.  Rumors of a closure were already circulating at that time.  We titled our post “It’s Only a Matter of Time” and unfortunately for the owners, we were correct.

Now we wonder what will move into that location…

  1. Whoa, like duuude. Where we gunna work now? Does Panera Bread drug test dude?
    I don’t know, but I heard ya gotta memorize how to make all the crappy sandwiches on their menu, so we can’t work there dude.
    Whoa, memorize? That’d be really hard.
    huh, huh, you said “hard.”

    Yes folks, come the end of the month, there will be a small band of stoner puppies outta work in downtown CRW.

    They had OK food, but absolutely terrible service. Its a great space, something will thrive there.

  3. Once there was decent coffee and better bagels served there. Last few years though, pretty crappy. The pumpernickel and jalapeno-cheese will still be missed by me. though.

    So, is there anyplace in Charleston where one can get a (relatively) fresh bagel? You know, one that’s not baked three days prior and wrapped in cling film? And no, Panera doesn’t count.

  4. Oh yeah, Tim Hortons. Pretty good donut/bagel place. And there’s one down the street here in Cross Lanes. Any other suggestions appreciated though.

  5. I don’t understand Tim Horton’s south of the border. Up in Canada (where everyone calls them “Timmy’s”) they are excellent places with great coffees, delicious pastries of all sorts, and good sandwiches.
    Down here they are just another crappy donut shop with lousy coffee.
    I dun git it.

  6. When you don’t eat carbs, you don’t have to worry about crappy bagels. It’s kind of a relief. I have never really enjoyed bagels or donuts anyway.

    I once stopped at Timmy’s for a sugar-free iced coffee and it was terrible. The sugar free syrup had no artificial sweetner in it so I had to add a ton of splenda. The lid on the cup didn’t fit well, either which is a real hazard when you are trying to drink and drive. The iced coffee with SF cinnamon dolce syrup at Starbucks is awesome. I only wish they had heavy cream available. Half & half is the strongest stuff they’ve got.

    Why, oh why is there a Tim Horton’s on Teays Valley Road instead of a Starbucks????

    The real question is why isn’t there a decent drive through coffee in charleston?

    Does anyone know if the new donut connection location on spring street has a drive through?
