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.

We had bagel breakfast sandwich with sausage, egg, & cheese on a toasted poppy seed bagel. It was excellent - the bagels are some of the best ever. The coffee is fresh and Bagel Mania is definitely a place to visit when in Augusta.

Ordered bagel sandwiches to go. Got home and took out of bag and the whole wrapping was covered in spreads and condiments. Absolutely disgusting - looked like something out of the trash - couldn't even eat it - had to throw it out.

Dear ladlb, I'm very distressed to hear that your wrapping was such a mess. Sometimes the condiments from the sandwich do get on our gloves, but we should change them before we pass you your food! Please know that we always want to know right away if there is a problem so we can fix it. Our goal is to... More

We were in town for a family wedding, nursing a killer hangover. We missed the hotels breakfast so we ventured out to load up on carbs before our 2 hour drive home. This place is awesome! There was live music ( a little band in the back playing some relaxing tunes). I got the super nova, I recommend it to... More
