We love seeing our returning neighbors and friends, and are delighted to introduce Bagel Mainea to new folks as well.

This is more than a bagel store. They make fabulous sandwiches and soups from scratch with high quality ingredients. Because everything is made to order, sometimes you have to wait in line a few minutes.

I've lived in and around Augusta for most of my life and out of all the restaurants the city and its surrounding area has to offer, Bagel Mainea is my absolute favorite, hands down. The bagels are absolutely fantastic and there's an excellent variety of flavors to choose from (everything from plain to everything to veggie garlic). There's also a... More

Their food is always good and fresh. Yummy bagels and home made bread plus you can never go wrong with boars head meats. Kevin's Delight is my all time favorite sandwich there! But they have something for everyone; lox, quesadillas, sandwiches or wraps and soup... They also sell orangina which is becoming hard to find.

we usually buy bagels by the dozen here: good variety, and always just out of the oven. They also make quite good deli sandwiches, and are a popular breakfast and lunch stop.

This is another one of those very popular places because it offers a wide variety of fresh "made there" bagels and a great selection of sandwiches. A very busy place but they move you through quickly and you can eat in or take out. Their location makes them a popular lunch option for the local businesses and they have a... More

Bagel Mainea is one of those places that I love to find while on business trips. Great food, unique atmosphere, very friendly people, and an excellent value. I will make my way back when I'm in the area again.
