This is a small place that epitomizes the best qualities of the american delis. I mean, the restaurant itself with its deco is just like you see in the movies, where the passers by stop from home to work or to hunting, fishing, or the moto riders in their way to anywhere, for having a bagel, cafe or a sandwich....

Start with bagels like you'd buy in Brooklyn. Add great staff, good music, and a nice sunroom. The best place for a snack or lunch with friends or just you're tablet...good WiFi too.

I try to time my trip south on Sunday to arrive in Augusta before Bagel Mainea closes. These are the best bagels in Augusta, probably all of Central Maine. I call ahead, have them fill a bag with a baker's dozen of fresh bagels (many varieties). My grandchildren love them.

Great choice of bagels, fillings, and toppings. Excellent choice of Green Mountain Roast coffee (hazelnut is my favourite) and friendly service. A home run.

They make the best bagels you can imagine and if you like olive cream cheese, you should try it out. The sandwiches are huge, fresh and can be altered any which way you want. Our office orders bagels from Bagel Mania every other week and we are never disappointed! Excellent job and fun food! Enjoy!

The sandwiches were big and good and made a great taste of local Maine hospitality. We ate there with local friends who recommended it.

This is a great spot for breakfast or lunch. We are originally from NY but now living in Maine and these bagels are close! The service was great and the location is very convenient. My father owned a bagel shop in NY very similar to this place. It felt like home.

We went here instead of having our free hotel breakfast and it was well worth it. The bagels were very fresh. The texture was just we like in a bagel: soft, slightly chewy, and thin crust. We had some of the bagel sandwiches and they were freshly prepared in a timely manner. The service was friendly and the coffee was... More
