Super yummy and great options. Sometimes short staffed and line can get very long. But other than that, great experience.

I am giving this review a 4 purely due to the amazing food. The food is always great hilarity, taste and for a good value. My only issue with this place is the service is very very slow.

Came here on a recommendation and didn't regret it. Service was quick and friendly and my bagel was the best I've had in a long time!

When we arrived at about noon, they were almost out of bagels and so we had a limited choice. We later heard from locals that it is very common for the store to run out of bagels in the morning and they don't make more, so don't get your hopes up for a particular kind (or any at all).

I ordered an onion bagel with veggie cream cheese. The veggie cream cheese had actual chunks of vegetables in it and tasted wonderful. The bagel had the best texture and density I've had in forever, but I was slightly disappointed that the onion flavor wasn't more prominent.

Best bagels in Augusta! A not to be missed place. Preorder your bread request on weekends, they run out early. Every flavor of bagel you can imagine with the best flavorful cream cheese. Try them for lunch too!

BagelMainea takes things above and beyond with fabulous bagels at shocking prices. They are made fresh daily with a standing list and occasional specialties. My favorite is the whole grain everything with the veggie garlic a close second. They have good sandwiches too.
