Pumping out 600 bagels an hour won’t be a problem anymore as Carolina Café opens its second location in West Columbia. The kitchen space is dedicated to former employee Kelly Hunnewell, who would have been the manager of the facility if not for her murder last year.

“It has been a bittersweet experience as we open our new shop while remembering and missing Kelly,” say Max and Lauren Schlueter, who own and operate both Carolina Café locations, in a press release.

The cafe will echo its signature menu from the downtown location, serving up authentic New York-style water bagels, muffins, cookies, pastries, sandwiches and wraps, and classic salads.

Both locations are open seven days a week. The West Columbia cafe is located at 2250 Sunset Boulevard. Reach the new location at 794-9799.
