It's been here for years churning out great bagels as well as a selection of soups and sandwiches. Service is generally fast and efficient.

I don't know if it's the Ellicott City location or what, but once again they were out of certain products at 7:30 in the morning. And it's not because they're busy, just the opposite. This is a cardinal sin for small business. It's been like this ever since new ownership took over. This used to be the go-to bagel place... More

The Bagel Bin has been a mainstay in Columbia for a long time. They serve many different kinds of spreads as well as sandwiches. Of course, they also have a good selection of bagels!

My wife and I live just a couple of miles from the Bagel Bin (the one in the Enchanted Forest shopping center). We've eaten breakfast there (eat in and take out) many times over the years. It has always been excellent. If you've been buying bagels at the Safeway across the parking lot, shame on you! The Bin's bagels are... More

It is not a fast food restaurant but the bagels are always fresh and the eggs and toasted to order. The omelets are cooked on a flat top but are tasty.

We come to this small local bagel shop often to pick up bagels. They are as good as you can get in Baltimore. There's lots of variety including blueberry, poppy, sesame, onion, plain, pumpernickel, and "everything." Their spreads are also good, including lox and a honey raisin. I haven't tried the sandwiches because I want the pure bagel experience.

Simply put don't go anywhere else to buy bagels in Columbia. Bagel Bin has been a Columbia institution since we moved here in the 70's. It has never disappointed.

I really can't explain the reason that the locals rave about the Bagel Bin (locations in Columbia and nearby Clarksville). The only thing that comes to mind is that there are no other bagel stores within a 30 minute drive. These are truly the worst bagels that I've ever eaten in a place that bills itself as a "bagel shop".... More

I went out of my way to go to the Bagel Bin because the locals rave about this place. I found the bagels to be flat and burnt. I needed razor sharp teeth to bite through my Egg and Cheese bagel sandwich with sharp, burnt bacon. I bought a 1/2 dozen bagels for $5.99 but I don't know why (one... More
