Good coffee and bagels, and they make lots of sandwiches and baked goods. The place has a good feel to it, too, with a warm stove on a sun porch where you can sit on a cold winter day.

A good little place for a nice bite to eat. You can make it a healthy, vegetarian meal. For a male, however, it's not enough in and of itself to be fulfilling

if you are looking for a laid back family-style place for bagels and sandwiches, this is hard to beat. the atmosphere is the opposite of a chain's, which I like.

Encompassed Maine hospitality in one restaurant and though the food took a while it was worth the wait. Friendly people and excellent homemade food.

This is a nice place where Augusta locals buy their bagels. The bagels are pretty good. I went in for a breakfast sandwich; egg whites on a bagel with lettuce and tomatoes. At under $5, including coffee it was a good deal and OK. You...More
