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.

We selected this establishment for our early Saturday morning breakfast. I had read many reviews and was looking for prompt service with outstanding quality of food. Despite our arrival at 20 minutes after opening and only one other customer at the counter, we were not even greeted when we entered. We finally placed our order and then waited 20 minutes... More

Dear titallen, I am very sorry for your experience at Bagel Mainea. Your review will be shared with the crew. I am wondering if your bagel choice was an whole grain, as the density of the grain keeps the bagels from fluffing up as fully as a white flour bagel (our bagels are around 4 oz each). The grains make... More

Creative spreads & toppings on your freshly made bagel. Very reasonable and busy! Food is fresh, can eat healthy or not. Friendly staff and good service. Local place...not a chain.
