gas station / The Filling Station / Columbia Bread And Bagel / Tiffany's Bakery, 2864 Devine Street: 2008   25 comments

Posted at 6:04 pm in Uncategorized

I was driving down Divine Street the other day after eating at Yo Burrito, and noticed that Tiffany's Bakery has closed. I had never been in this place -- The one time I stopped it was closed though it seemed to me a reasonable hour to be open. I believe there is another location on Two Notch not too far from I-77, but I have never stopped there either.

UPDATE 3 Jan 2010: Added full street address to post title

UPDATE 25 March 2011: Added some new names to the post title based on the comments about Conrad's.

  1. The food there was fantastic. The service was ALWAYS bad. ALWAYS.
    A breakfast server should hustle. The food should come out in a timely manner. Neither was EVER the case.

    I went to the Two Notch one & couldn't BELIEVE they were one in the same.

  2. And if the New owners of Bird's on a Wire don't shape up, they're next.

    The new menu s FULL of typos & the food doesn't taste as fresh.

  3. You NEED to go to Tiffany's right off of Alpine Road and Two Notch. They have a killer fried green tomato BLT, homemade tarts (TARTS MAN, TARTS!!!!), the best buttery croissant's I've ever had...and it's not gonna break your wallet! The croissant I had was less than $1.50 and it was HOMEMADE!!! I'm not sure that it's open on Sundays, but every now and again I drive over there from Irmo for that fried green tomato BLT sandwich. :yum:

  4. Sounds good -- I'll have to check it out.

  5. The site was originally a Kentucky Fried Chicken in the 1960s. In the 1970s, KFC moved to a new location across the street. Oddly enough, the buildings that housed the four original KFC's in Columbia ( Two Notch, West Columbia, North Main and Devine) still stand.

  6. As it happens, the Two Notch KFC is the most recent post..

  7. Tiffany's was one of the first places our family ate when we moved to Columbia. They always had wonderful baked goods that were made at their Two-Notch location. It was a pleasant place for lunch or a light dinner after shopping on Devine Street.

    I lament that there is no bakery that I know of in downtown Columbia--does anyone know of a location? The other place we used to go to had a fire and then closed not long after we came in 2000--it was on Harden near Five Points was a real old timey bakery.

  8. The Five Points bakery was Cribb's. A fantastic place I miss all the time.

    Anyone else old enough to remember the Tasty Bake Shop on Forest Drive? It was near the intersection of Pinehurst. All my family's birthday cakes came from there, back when you had to order them in advance instead of just running to the grocery store.

    There was also a great, though tiny, bakery in the shopping center on Rosewood, now completely gone under Publix.

    Who wants to open a donut shop in the empty KFC building on Rosewood with me? We'll be rich...

  9. I remember Cribb's but it burned down before I ever got around to checking it out. Didn't ever get to Tasty Bake either though I do remember it. I think my mother considered buying a "store bought" cake a waste of money.

  10. My mom used to buy me a gingerbread man every week from Tasty Bake after my allergy shot from Dr. Caughman in the mid to late 70's. Thanks, mom!

  11. Tasty Bake was awesome.

  12. I think that location, before it was "Tiffany's" was a location for "Columbia Bread and Bagel." The original "Columbia Bread and Bagel" was in Trenholm Plaze (1994-1995ish). They then opened this location on Devine.


    23 Dec 08 at 10:04 am

  13. Hmm. Don't remember a Columbia Bread & Bagel in Trenholm Plaza at all. There was Manhatten Bagel there, which later dropped the franchaise and became Holey Dough Cafe..

  14. I'm pretty sure The Original Pancake House moved into it after it closed.


    23 Dec 08 at 12:10 pm

  15. Hmm. I still don't remember that, but on reflection, I can't recall what was in that space before OPH at all..


    23 Dec 08 at 6:37 pm

  16. Is that where Delancey Street deli was? Or just close to it?


    23 Dec 08 at 8:00 pm

  17. Wasn't it also a sandwich place called "The Filling Station" at one time. It was a REAL filling station before that, I think...


    31 Dec 08 at 7:22 am

  18. The Filling Station was at the location now occupied by Bird on a Wire. It reappeared for a short period at the space now occupied by MoMo's Bistro.

    The Columbia Bread and Bagel did occupy the space that the Original Pancake House is now in. It was a combo bakery and upscale deli that lasted about a year or so if I remember correctly.

  19. There was a Bread & Bagel in Trenholm Plaza first. It was split into two restaurants in the midst of a divorce, and the one on Devine St. opened up. That restaurant went bankrupt and the same owner came up with Tiffany's.

  20. I bought a carrot cake at Cribb's once - worst cake I have *ever* eaten. Like cardboard. Horrible. I never went back.

  21. First of all that pasta salad was great. I would make me salivate.

    To Tiff's knees:

    I seriously doubt you will see this comment as you left your remark back in 2008. However I just saw this a feel compelled to comment. I am one of those former servers that apparently was "Always Slow".

    I would love to know if you ever waited tables and if so breakfast tables. It is a totally different animal and a much more difficult job than lunch or dinner. I'm sorry my cook does not know how the cook an egg somewhere in between over easy and over medium. It does not exist. So my question is were you difficult? Did you force me to waste time by making you an entire new pot of coffee for you, because you didnb@t think it was strong enough? Guess what most other people loved it. Did you come in for breakfast and expect me to "hustle" for you even though you would only leave a $1 tip no matter how much your check was and sit in my booth for 4 hours every morning?

    Rarely were there ever complaints, but no restaurant can be perfect. At Tiffanyb@s the customer was always right, but people like you simply can not be pleased. We had many wonderful customers and even more wonderful employees.

    Those good times are long gone, but at least there are still people like you to complain about a place that closed years ago. I pity any server that encounters you in the future.

  22. Nice spam, Leo.

  23. i wass suppose to go here but never did

  24. Looks like this place has closed again. It had been "Conrad's" for about a year, but the sign is gone, and I saw a container outside, so apparently someone else is going to give it a go.

  25. Well said Spinach Quiche.
    When will people who want to start a restaurant in Columbia realize that unless you are a chain, you will probably fail. Due to the common complaints that you see here such as "its overpriced for what they serve"

    People seem to expect gourmet meals and excellent service for cheap unless your a chain.
