Charleston residents love to complain about the lack of “decent bagels” in the downtown area, so perhaps newcomer Little Line will fix that. Owners Wendy Wenzel Gleim and Jeff Gleim ship in bagels from legendary H&H in New York City. While the couple has extensive culinary backgrounds (they previously ran Scratch Kitchen at the Wickliffe House), the small cafe at 176 Line Street doesn’t allow space for bagel production, so why not import?
Other than bagels, Little Line offers biscuits, grits, and soft scrambles. On the lunch menu, diners will find various sandwiches, salads, and fries with different sauces for dipping. The shop also offers retail items like wine, crackers, condiments, and more.
Little Line is open Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Online ordering is available. There’s a few seats inside and an outdoor patio if customers don’t want to do takeout. Take a quick tour around the space here.
This address was the former site of Nana’s Seafood & Soul, which expanded to North Charleston in 2019 and closed its downtown store in 2020.
