Nice place for a convenient, inexpensive breakfast or lunch downtown

We went to Bagel Central for lunch today. It was a cafeteria style lunch place with community seating. The lines were long, but on the flip side, it meant that the food was probably decent. We got a blt with cheese on a sesame bagel, a spinach pie and a tuna salad on an onion bagel. The bagels tasted freshly... More

Stopped here for lunch on our long drive to Acadia. Worst bagel ever. I don't know how they can even call them bagels. They have the consistency of a soft dinner roll. I thought something was wrong and they gave me another bagel, but it was the same. As a true New Yorker, I have eaten, literally a thousand bagels.... More

My wife and I have visited Bagel Central many times. Each visit is never disappointing. The food, especially the bagels are great. If a bagel is not what you crave then their menu will feature something to satisfy your hunger. Come for breakfast stay for lunch, Bagel Central will not leave you disappointed.

Many people swear by the food here. Went for the first time, after their expansion. Seems like they have some growing pains. Food took a while to get, even with it being a simple breakfast sandwich with cheese and egg, and a couple pancakes. Sandwich was nothing special, but the bagel did taste like the better part. Pancakes tasted more... More

Extensive menu choices and everyday specials. Fresh baked bagels, sweet bread and desserts. Food quality is superb and prices are extremely fair. Don't let the downtown and parking issue discourage you, it's worth it!

We've been visiting Bagel Central for years now and it is always consistently good. We've only had breakfast, but the omelets, bagels, coffee and cheese Danishes are our favorite! They warm the Danish for you and it is melt in your mouth good! Raspberry lime Rickey's were a favorite of mine growing up and I love having one here. They... More

I'll start with the "but" first, since it is really a positive for the regulars. The place is very busy and quite loud. Busy is good since it means what you get is good. The noise is strictly from the acoustics - tall ceilings and every surface is hard. Combine that with 40 or 50 people trying to be heard... More

Great place for a breakfast meeting. Whenever we interview a potential new employee, we meet her for breakfast. Bagel Central's atmosphere is casual and friendly. We just got back from metro ny and the bagels at central are just as good!

Place your order at the counter, very reasonable prices--less than $7.00 for huge, great tasty sandwiches. Peach herbal tea-delicious! We had pastrami and sliced turkey and homemade bread, great potato salad, great bagels. Pick your own table seating, bright--big windows on main street. This is my favorite place, and I have been to several restaurants in Bangor and Brewer.
