About Us

Bagels ‘n Grinds features a glass-enclosed $50,000 water treatment facility that is incorporated into the viewable baking process at the restaurant. “The ability to use ultra-purified water in the bagel-making process enhances the texture and flavor of our bagels,” said Adam Greenberg, owner of Bagels ‘n Grinds. However, Greenberg notes that “the water treatment process does not stop with the bagel recipe.”

Our water treatment facility makes three different types of water. We use this water in our coffee at our 18- foot beverage station, so that our patrons receive only the best and purest products available.” The beverage station includes: soda, six brews of fresh hot coffee, iced coffee and fresh brewed iced tea.

Bagels ‘n Grinds offers a menu of delicious sandwiches, salads and soups. On the warm side we offer made-to-order Eggstreme Omelet Breakfast Sandwiches with the toppings mixed right in. All the egg sandwiches can be made with egg whites or egg substitutes. Sandwiches include hot baginnis (bagel- panini), as well as wraps.

On the cold side, Bagels ‘n Grinds delivers a fresh twist on Roast Beef, Turkey, Clubs and Veggie sandwich creations with delightful compliments like feta cheese and herb aioli.

Our extreme salad menu includes a “Make-Your-Own-Salad” option where you can choose among a selection of lettuce mixes, gourmet dressings, and toppings. All lettuce and veggies are washed and prepared in-house. Bagels ‘n Grinds never uses bagged lettuce, and all of our poultry is freshly cooked on-site.

We also offer a variety of cookies, brownies, yogurt parfaits, and muffins all made on- site to help satisfy your sweet tooth cravings. Both of our locations offer indoor and outdoor seating. Enjoy our amenities such as free internet access, our fireplace, LED TVs, and semi-private conference areas in both locations that can be reserved for meetings and business gatherings.

A lifelong Marylander, Adam has been giving back to his community for years. Adam is a familiar face to many Montgomery County school children, due in part to the “Pizza Demos” he conducts where he teaches kids about cleanliness in the kitchen while helping them make their own, personal pizzas to bring home for dinner.

Adam has turned the bagel business into a science and not an experiment, spending countless hours seeking the perfect bagel and bagel recipe. With his extensive experience in “dough”, (pizza dough that is!), Adam has developed an authentic New York bagel right here in Maryland.

His civic accomplishments have earned him several awards such as the Potomac Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year, Service Guild Business Person / Partner of the Year, and the Cabin John Volunteer Fire Department Community Partnership Award. He has been a member of the Board of Directors for the Potomac Chamber of Commerce since 1997. Adam lives in Potomac with his wife Courtney and has three children.



Sonia Reyes is from Pasadena, MD and no stranger to the restaurant industry, with over 14 years of experience and 12 years being in a management role. She has been with Bagels ‘n Grinds in Hanover for several of those years.

Fun fact is that Sonia had her first bagel when she turned 17 and has been hooked on them ever since, especially our Bagel Chips. When she isn’t working, she loves spending time with her family and being outdoors. Next time you grab your breakfast or lunch at our Hanover location, be sure to give Sonia a big hello!
