This is a casual dining establishment, many wore shorts and t-shirts.

Bagels with cream cheese


The Bagel Station is located in a strip mall type area so there is lots of parking!


When we arrived all of the chairs were stacked on the tables.  It could have been close to closing time, or due to covid.  Plan on possibly taking your bagel to go.


Ordering was very straightforward and the employees were fairly friendly and willing to help with our orders.

Is This A Date Night Place

ummmm….if you date is craving a bagel and it’s before 2 pm…then sure?? But if you are trying to impress your date I wouldn’t recommend it.

Special Covid Instructions

There was a “No Mask No Service” sign on the door so remember your mask!  There also appeared to be no indoor seating at this time.


The bagels were average-sized bagels.  Maybe a little on the large size.  They did give plenty of smear!

What We Ordered and What We Thought

We both ordered an everything bagel with cream cheese and chive smear.  We both loved the cream cheese but the bagel was just ok.
