Great food

This is a very casual restaurant but the food is great. The line was out the door but moved quickly. Their specialty are bagels and the breakfast sandwich bagels do not disappoint. Can't wait to go back!

Very disappointed in this visit. The bagels were under cooked (white) and gummy. Poor hygiene was observed by the crew. One young man put his gloved hand in his tee shirt, wiped his face then continued making sandwich without changing gloves then female dug into her purse to retrieve cell phone and went back to making breakfast without changing gloves...

Bagel nation had a good variety of different types of bagels and combinations that you could get. The thing that I did not like very much was the wait. But in their defense it was July 4.

This is a particular establishment that for probably more than 15 years I have visited during trips to IOP and when I lived there. The bagels are the best you will find in the area. If you want a particular type you must get there early enough before they get gone. The coffee is also some of my favorite! Through... More

I bought a couple of everything bagels to take bake to the hotel. Really good bagels like you would get in NY. Finding good bagels in SC can be a challenge but this was a find.

Heading for the Airport and thought a Bagel for breakfast. Poppy Seed w/ Bacon, Egg & Cheese, and o had a Everything toasted with Chive Cream Cheese. We both agreed that the Bagels were very good. Really good Hazelnut Decaf Coffee.

We recently moved from NY where bagels and pizzas are second to none. After searching, we found the best bagels in the south at Bagels Nation in mount pleasant. To add to the hifh quality of bagels, the service is outstanding. Everyone is friendly and courteous that we look forward to going. The bagels have the right exterior that mirrors... More

Visited for breakfast and lunch. Nice menu, not all bagels. Kids loved the pancakes and the omelettes were very good. Bagel sandwiches were like the deli's up north. Try the Bordeux Brie with Raspberry Preserves and almonds.

When we got there at 9AM on Saturday, not many bagels left and latte machine not working. Kind of disappointed in the bagels

Not sure how this place continues to stay open. Health dept should shut them down. Downright filthy!! Bagels are dry, staff is slow and unfriendly. One of the things I miss about NY, is their bagels,
