Yummy

This is a terrific place to grab a quick bite and offers much more than just bagels. There are so many choices! Also try their homemade bagel chips. Service is quick and they now offer call ahead ordering.

Excellent deli food and really welcoming staff and customers. If you are looking for the closest thing to "Cheers" in Augusta (without the drinks), this is the place.

What a great place in Augusta Maine. Late afternoon and was traveling from Canada and found this jewel of a place. Owner was nice and helpful and my wife and I each had a turkey bagel, each with their own twist. The Cajun turkey on a poppy seed bagel toasted was fabulous. Love the dirty potato chips too.

Great service, made fresh, excellent sandwiches and coffee. Getting my bagels grilled is the best and the kids love it too. Best way to get them to eat breakfast without complaining. They also take phone orders so if your in a crunch call ahead.

This is as good as it gets in Augusta. Most restaurants in Augusta suck really. I don't understand why Bagel Mainea gets such positive reviews ... the only thing I can figure is all the employees and employees friends post them. The food is crap and the prices are too high for what you're getting. It's almost like the owner... More

SLOW SLOW SLOW, BUT if you have 25 minutes to wait for a bagel...the bagels are good. Service is lacking. They are older folks generally and do a lot of chatting more than working....BUT the orders are made and made correctly....the bagels are good. JUST WAIT FOREVER....SLLLOOOWWW

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.
