“Bagel Mainea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

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.

Dear almosthappytraveler,
Thanks for taking the time to write about us in Tripadvisor! I'm glad that someone with so much "cred" would find our bagels good. Boiled and baked, just like in NY. Because I would like you to feel that we offer great value and atmosphere, as well as service and food, please ask for me on your next visit and give me your thoughts about improvement! We will do what we can to earn your total delight!

“Great fresh bagels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

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 good.

Wonderful bagels (especially for Maine) and amazing sandwiches. Most definitely worth the stop off the highway.

“THE BEST!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

They have the best assortment of bagels you've ever seen. My favorite has to be the Cheddar. I also love the cinnamon raisin, very berry and tomato basil. I also buy my cold cuts there!!
